Botox for Migraine headaches
If you have been diagnosed with migraine and get migraine headaches often, you may wonder if there’s anything you can do to prevent them.

A history of migraine headaches
Headaches (including tension-type) on most days (15 or more) of the month of which 8 are migraine
It is not an approved treatment if you:
Get headaches 14 or fewer days each month
Have other types of headaches, like cluster
Botox is an injectable substance that is a medical-grade form of the botulinum toxin A, also called botox botulism. It is a medical protein that is injected into the muscles of the face to minimize the appearance of furrows and lines.
Botox for for sweating (hyperhidrosis)
Botox also works beautifully for hyperhidrosis. For treatment in the underarms, Botox is injected in about 15-20 sites in the armpits. Decreased sweating is seen about two weeks later, with the sweat reduction lasting approximately six months. Botox injections also work well to treat excessive sweating in the face, soles of the feet and palms of the hand.
Botox for Low back pain
Lower back pain is a common cause for visits to the doctor.
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), low back pain is the most common cause of job-related disability. At least 80 percent of Americans will experience low back pain in their lifetime.
Most low back pain is the result of an injury, such as muscle sprains or strains due to sudden movements or poor body mechanics while lifting heavy objects.
Acute back pain can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, while chronic back pain is pain that lasts longer than three months.
Low back pain is more likely to occur in individuals between the ages of 30 and 50. This is partly due to the changes that occur in the body with aging. As you grow older, there’s a reduction in the fluid content between the vertebrae in the spine.
This means discs in the spine experience irritation more easily. You also lose some muscle tone, which makes the back more prone to injury. This is why strengthening your back muscles and using good body mechanics are helpful in preventing low back pain.
When injected into muscle in tiny amounts, botulinum A (Botox) can stop or reduce muscle spasm by blocking nerve signals to the muscle. … Botulinum toxin A has been tried as a treatment for chronic low back pain. Although this practice is experimental and not well tested, it has shown promise.
