Although migraine headaches have always been known as one of the most difficult conditions to treat because there is no set cure for them, modern advances in science have made it so that there might be more effective ways to treat the pain associated with migraines than there was in the past. Traditionally, people who were suffering from migraines could only rely on over-the-counter or prescription pain medications to help them deal with all the symptoms that come with migraines. Moreover, many people would simply lock themselves up in a quiet, dark room and attempt to sleep through the pain and discomfort that comes with such headaches. While many people still rely on these measures of suffering through migraine headaches, specialists like Dr. Tavoussi can provide them with a variety of treatment solutions that can help them deal with their conditions in more comfort.
One of the most popular types of migraine treatment methods that Dr. Tavoussi provides to patients at his Newport Beach office in Orange County is Botox Treatment. While most people think of cosmetic surgery and improving one’s appearance when they think of Botox treatments, Botox can actually be used for a variety of other purposes as well. As far as migraine treatment goes, Botox can be injected into the muscles or tissues of the face or temples that are believed to be causing the tension and spasms that contribute to the pain that people experience when they suffer from migraine headaches. Although Botox treatments provide many people with relief, they must usually be administered again every six to eight weeks to maintain the results. For those people who still don’t experience relief from their migraine headaches after getting Botox injections, there is still yet another option that Dr. Tavoussi offers at his Newport Beach office in Orange County.
Nerve Decompression Surgery
Nerve decompression surgery is quickly becoming one of the most popular forms of migraine headache treatment due to its high rate of effectiveness. In fact, it is the procedure that Dr. Tavoussi performs the most for migraine treatment at his Newport Beach office in Orange County. To do nerve decompression surgery, Dr. Tavoussi conducts a thorough evaluation and neurological x-ray of patients at his Newport Beach office in Orange County to determine just which nerves are damaged and are causing the migraine headaches. He can then plan and conduct an intricate surgery that addresses each patient’s unique issues that are causing his or her migraines.
