The same Botox® product that is used for cosmetic procedures is also effective for relieving chronic pain. The ingredient in Botox® relaxes the muscles of your body, and it provides short-term benefits for residents of Ocala, The Villages, and surrounding areas of central Florida who suffer from migraines, myofascial pain, and other types of chronic pain.
What Are Botox® Injections?
Botox® injections contain botulinum toxin that is proven to temporarily relax muscles into which the product is injected. We recommend Botox® for:
- Neck pain
- Chronic migraines and episodic headaches
- Myofascial pain
- Spasms caused by nerve abnormalities
What Are the Benefits of Botox® Treatment?
Botox® treatment provides you with relief from the chronic pain that diminishes your quality of life. Botox® is effective for chronic pain that is related to muscular disorders, and we evaluate the source of your pain during the consultation.
Am I a Candidate for Treatment from Botox® Clinics Near Me?
If your chronic pain is muscular in nature, you may be a good candidate for Botox® injections. Choose a provider that specializes in pain management and has extensive experience in the treatment. Botox® must be administered appropriately to ensure that the product is delivered only into the targeted muscles, as the ingredient in Botox® can affect other tissues.
Can I Receive Pain Management Services from Anyone That Offers Botox® and Fillers Near Me?
Most practices that offer Botox® and fillers do so for cosmetic purposes, so they are not qualified to perform the injections for pain management. If you are interested in pain relief with Botox®, contact Central Florida Pain Management to schedule a consultation.
How Are Botox® Injections Performed?
Botox® is administered via a needle that is inserted into the muscle that is causing your chronic pain. Several injections are needed to properly relax the muscles.
What is Recovery Like After Botox® Injections?
Botox® does not require any recovery. You may notice some improvement in your pain symptoms immediately after the injections. Full results may take up to one week. Some patients notice tenderness, bruising, swelling, and minor bleeding at each injection site. These symptoms last only one to three days. Ice can be gently applied to manage these symptoms.
What is the Prognosis After Botox® Injections?
Your pain will be relieved for a few months, and you will need to schedule follow-up injections to manage your chronic pain.
