Botox Injection for Muscle Disorders & Migraines

Though Botox is infamously known in the world of beauty to keep skin wrinkle-free, Botox injections have benefits of relieving chronic migraines and other muscular disorders. Botox is a brand of botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT), a protein substance originally derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In its original form, it was the toxin responsible for botulism, the paralyzing illness often caused by eating contaminated food.

BoNT is now used to treat a number of medical conditions including muscle spasms, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, and some eye muscle conditions. However, one of its most common uses is in the preventive treatment of chronic migraine. Chronic migraine, defined as headache occurring more than 15 days a month for more than three months, is rare, affecting only about 3% of the migraine population. Nonetheless, since migraine itself is so common, this condition ends up affecting a large number of people and can be extremely debilitating.
