Botox as a Headache Treatment? Researchers Say Yes

botox-urbanaBotox may be used to relieve migraine headaches, according to new research published in Archives of Dermatology. Botox injections “at doses appropriate for cosmetic purposes may be sufficient to prevent migraine attacks” concluded authors of the study.

“Patient care was incredible! We are so very happy our child was referred to Dr. Will. We appreciate the attentiveness given to his medical condition. Will highly recommend to others.”
