Read Transcript

Botox can be very effective in terms of treating headaches, but it really depends what the diagnosis says. It's been FDA approved to treat chronic migraine but people do you use it for other types of headache as well, such as tension headaches where you have a lot more muscle tension, and also cervicogenic headache where the pain may be coming from the neck so problem's really is the disc, the bones, or the joints.
