Headache Treatment

Dr. Pinkerton offers multiple headache treatments, including BOTOX® for migraines. If you are experiencing severe migraines, or frequent / painful headaches, you might consider seeing a pain management doctor like Mark Pinkerton, MD, who specializes in BOTOX headache treatment. He will meet with you to gain an understanding of what you’re experiencing and determine how best to help you. 

What Type of Headache Do You Have?

There are different types of headaches. Cluster headaches are predictable, painful headaches. They may happen every day at the same time.  Migraine headaches are a throbbing pain that can completely interrupt your day. Migraines are often accompanied by hypersensitivity to light and smell as well as nausea and/or vomiting. Tension headaches are the most common type. Unlike cluster headaches and migraines, tension headaches are not caused by an underlying medical condition.

BOTOX for Migraines

BOTOX may be best known for smoothing out forehead wrinkles, but it also has the power to treat headaches and migraines as well as neck pain, back pain, and muscle pain. BOTOX injections can block nerve signals that trigger a pain response. When using a pattern injection, Dr. Pinkerton’s headache treatment can provide relief that lasts for several months. Repeat injections can extend pain relief even longer. 

BOTOX injections, along with other treatments and medication, can help reduce the symptoms and number of headache episodes.
