Migraine Treatment – Botox Injections Nottingham and Newark
If you’re reading this then you have, undoubtedly, heard about Botox and understand some of the benefits that it can provide. Usually, it is used for aesthetic reasons, but did you know that it is far more versatile?
Migraines are a headache disorder which can be mild to severe and frequency can be different from person to person.
The duration of migraines can be a few hours to a few days in some people. Not only do migraines present with head pain they can also be accompanied with nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light.
It is believed over 6 million people in the UK suffer from migraines and it tends to be more women than men who experience them. It’s the third most prevalent illness in the world. Migraines can be triggered in some people by common factors such as caffeine, exercise, certain foods, stress, hormonal factors, weather and medications. If you find your migraine is triggered by any of these factors where possible try to avoid them.
Over the counter pain relief may ease some symptoms or your doctor may prescribe some prescription medication, this may help some people.
BotoxR (onabotulinum toxin A) was licensed in the UK by MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) in 2010 for chronic migraine. Scientists are not sure how the BotoxR works with reducing chronic migraines as more research needs to be done.
2013 Migraine Research FDA Approved
Did you know that back in 2013 the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of Botox as a means of helping people to tackle migraines? The reasons behind why this works are not yet fully known, though the best guess is that because Botox is effective at easing nerve endings, it stops pain from formulating.
Some sufferers find home remedies helpful such as resting with your eyes closed in a dark room, cold compress to the forehead and drinking plenty of fluids such as water.
Botox Advantages, uses and potential cures
The history and uses associated with Botox is very interesting, but not particularly well known by many people. Luckily, we’re here to change all of that, because we’re going to give you the rundown on 3 other advantages of using Botox – and some bits that you weren’t aware you wanted to know. Enjoy!
1. It can be used as a treatment against depression
This may sound like an outlandish claim, but numerous research studies have found that Botox can be incredibly effective when it comes to helping people with depression or anxiety. This is largely due to the fact that Botox can help relax facial muscles, which in turn can trigger positive reactions in the brain.
2. It can stop you from intense bouts of sweating
If you have a problem with sweating profusely (hyperhidrosis) – and research would suggest that as much as 3 percent of the population does – then you can ensure that excessive sweating doesn’t control your life by making use of Botox injections. This works by blocking the chemical signals that emanate from the nerves that encourage your sweat glands to function, meaning you can go about your daily routine without those pesky damp patches emerging!
3. It can be used to stop overactive bladders
It would seem that there is no end to Botox’s qualities! Did you know that, as well as its numerous other applications, it can be utilised to help people that suffer from incontinence? When Botox is injected directly into your bladder it can ensure spasms decrease, giving you much more ability to control your bladder.
