Migraine and Headache

Treatment available in Houston, Dallas, and Santa Monica

Headache is a very serious problem for many patients who suffered a head injury.
At Texas Brain Institute, we have patients who report resolved headaches with a single advanced procedure.
In many cases, the headaches are caused by an injury along the back of the skull (occiput) where neck muscles attach to the skull. In that area, the greater and lesser occipital nerves pass through the area of the occiput and run all the way forward to the forehead. At Texas Brain Institute, we use advanced MRI-guided injections with FDA-approved scar dissolving enzymes to offer potential relief or resolution from your headaches.
While the term migraine seems to be associated with severe headache- they differ in that migraines are a neurological disease that involve nerve pathways and chemicals. People who have tension headaches often complain of a band of pain across their forehead, or pressure on either side of the head. Migraine, on the other hand, usually hurts worse unilaterally.
A migraine can be treated with Botox injections. These are generally done in the forehead and temporal areas (above/anterior to ears). This is generally a prospective treatment. It is difficult to tell which post-traumatic headache sufferers will respond. However, when it works, it works well and can last for three to six months. If a patient has previously had Botox (e.g., for cosmetic use) and had a normal response, then they can be treated immediately. Once the Botox wears off at three to six months, the treatment can be repeated every few months.
