Millions of people across the nation suffer from migraine headaches, and they are indeed some of the most debilitating illnesses to suffer from in Huntington Beach. Migraine headaches come with a variety of symptoms, some of which can be attributed to other types of illnesses, which is why many people who suffer from them might not even be aware that they are suffering from migraine headaches. Not only do migraine headaches come with the pain of a severe headache, but they might also come with nausea, vomiting, dizziness, shakes, fever, aches and various other symptoms. Fortunately, a specialist like Dr. Tavoussi can help patients find relief from their symptoms when they visit his Newport Beach or Huntington Beach office in Orange County.
Huntington Beach Migraine Treatment Methods
One of the modern treatment methods that Dr. Tavoussi uses on his patients at his Newport Beach and Huntington Beach offices in Orange County is Botox. While you might think that Botox is only used to help people improve their cosmetic appearance, there are actually a variety of medical uses for Botox as well. The way that Botox injections work for treating migraine headaches is by temporarily paralyzing the muscles and tissues that are believed to be causing the tension that causes the pain associated with the headaches. Sometimes injecting those target muscles and tissues can provide patients with relief for a few weeks, as long as the injections last. Then, they can return and get additional injections as needed.
