Botox injections are one option for patients suffering from post-concussive migraine. Botox nerve blocks are different from traditional nerve blocks due to their nerve-paralyzing effect, which can provide longer lasting relief. Botox cranial nerve blocks are administered every three months to patients who are suffering from severe and chronic migraines.
Patients who experience 15 or more headache days per month or who experience migraine episodes lasting more than four hours per episode may be covered by their insurance for this treatment.
The Botox treatment is injected into 31 injection points around the head and neck, and can offer relief for those who have not experienced improvement in their pain after trying other methods of treatment without success.
