Botox®

Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network offers those with migraines, traumatic brain injury (TBI), concussive-type headaches or localized spasticity (tightness of muscles) an unlikely remedy: Botox® injections. Originally used to help women stave off wrinkles, researchers noticed, for example, migraine sufferers who received Botox® injections for cosmetic purposes also had a reduction in migraine symptoms.

Patients undergo a thorough physical examination, health history review, review of failed medications and treatments and additional non-invasive testing to determine if Botox® treatment is appropriate.
