HOW IT WORKS
Botox® is a purified protein used to relax muscles. For Chronic Migraine it is administered through a series of tiny injections with a fine needle into the specific head and neck muscles thought to contribute to headache symptoms. No anaesthetic is required and most patients report very little discomfort. Relief can begin within days and full improvement is generally seen within two weeks. Treatments must be repeated at regular three month intervals to maintain results.
Botox® treatments for Chronic Migraine are not covered by OHIP, however private insurance may cover all or a portion of the treatment.
A referral from your family doctor or neurologist will be required to initiate treatment.
