Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

FDA-approved Botox® injections are effective for pain relief and migraine prevention, too. The injections are made of botulinum toxin.

Botox and other injectables made of botulinum toxin, such as Dysport®, work by blocking chemical signals from nerves to muscles and temporarily relaxing the muscles.

What is Botox used for?

Botox, these injectables help treat the following chronic health conditions:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Chronic pain
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Spasticity after a stroke
  • Muscle contractures

At RehabOne Medical Group, Botox is a common treatment for the prevention and relief of migraine pain.

What should I expect during Botox treatment?

Before Botox treatment, you meet with a physician at RehabOne Medical Group to determine if the injectable is right for you. They review your medical history and symptoms, and may use blood or imaging tests to determine the cause of your chronic pain. 

Your doctor injects your skin or muscles multiple times with botulinum toxin at strategic points based on the source of your pain. The procedure is quick and comfortable, lasting about 10-20 minutes.

What happens after Botox injections?

After the procedure, avoid touching or rubbing the treated areas for a day. There’s no downtime, so you can resume normal everyday activities right away. 

You might notice results of Botox within a few days, and reduced pain lasts at least two months. Your doctor lets you know when to schedule follow-up treatments for additional Botox injections.

In addition to Botox, your provider might recommend other alternative therapies to ease chronic pain. Examples include acupuncture, yoga, meditation, stress-relieving techniques, massage, or chiropractic adjustments.

Don’t let long-lasting pain prevent you from enjoying life to its fullest. Call RehabOne Medical Group for an appointment today.
