Therapeutic Injection / Botox
By Dr. Kathrine Tavakoli

What are some of the primary conditions treated by therapeutic botox?

Some of the primary conditions treated by therapeutic botox include migraine headaches, Hyperhidrosis and Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ).

Migraine Headaches:
Botox (approved therapy by Health Canada) has now been used successfully for treatment of chronic migraine headaches. Botox is injected around the nerve endings and blocks release of chemicals involved in transmission of pain.

What are some of the areas affected by Migraine headaches?
● Frontal headaches (radiating to the back of the eyes)
● Temporal headaches (unilateral or bilateral)
● Occipital headaches (unilateral or bilateral)
● Full head/bilateral headache

During your visit, depending on areas affected and severity and frequency of headaches, you’ll be given multiple injections (will feel a pinch), however there is no down time after the treatment.

What are some of the benefits of Therapeutic treatment for Migraine Headaches?
● Noticeable reduction in frequency and intensity of headaches.

Hyperhidrosis:
Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is another common condition successfully treated with botox. Botox works to temporarily block chemical nerve signals that stimulate sweat glands

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ):
Botox treatment for jaw tension, tends to eliminate local pain and headaches associated with excessive teeth grinding.
