Did you know that 85% of headaches, migraines, and TMJ pain are caused by tight muscles that can be treated with Botox?
The muscles of the head and neck are primarily responsible for headaches and pain of the head, neck, and TMJ. Other causes can be neurological and must be ruled out in the examination. Dr. Abeyta will complete a thorough exam and determine if your pain is from muscle dysfunction. If muscle is determined to be the cause, botox is injected into trigger points of the muscle which over time will decrease muscle spasm and reduce trigger points. This treatment can last 3-6 months.
