Therapeutic Botox refers to the use of Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox) for relief of migraine headaches and neck pain that causes headaches. In these diagnostic situations, the drug works by not only relaxing muscles that may spasm, but through other mechanisms as well. The Botox can also block stinging impulses that travel to effected painful areas, as well as deactivating natural chemicals produced by the brain that cause migraine headaches.
