wwqHow Does BOTOX Work For TMJ And Migraines?

BOTOX is another injection therapy for a variety of different health conditions. These include conditions such as TMJ Disorder, migraines, cluster headaches and other neurological disorders. It is commonly given to patients, who want to temporarily alleviate pain or improve their symptoms, and there are a number of reasons for this.

BOTOX is also an option for sufferers of TMD, so it can be used to help alleviate some of the pain associated with TMJ. TMJ is a condition where the joints, which exist between your jaw and your skull, are not in place correctly.

This is most commonly caused by poor posture, but people also suffer from TMJ due to injuries, accidents, or, in some cases, surgery. The TMJ condition can cause you to feel pain, stiffness, and poor posture that makes it very difficult to breathe properly, eat, or sleep.

When you have TMJ, your jaw has problems gripping. This results in the jawbone being broken in two places, one on each side of your face. It is caused by your jawbone becoming too weak to support your skull. This is why BOTOX injections are such an effective treatment for those with TMJ.

BOTOX injections also help relieve migraines, which is why BOTOX is frequently used to treat cluster headaches.

I previously wrote an article on how to prevent TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Disorders. However, if you suffer from TMJ, your treatment options can be very limited. As we have discussed, your TMJ joints will be damaged, or ‘broken’ in two places. Therefore, you will need to receive treatment to help them heal. You can do this by using soft tissue patches, exercise and hot and cold packs, although a more invasive option is surgery.

A more serious option for sufferers of TMJ is BOTOX injections. This can help to temporarily improve your TMJ symptoms and give you the best chance of successfully treating your TMJ conditions. The impact of BOTOX injections on your TMJ will depend on the length and nature of your condition. If you do not have a lot of pain, you can expect to have a good recovery, as long as you follow the treatment instructions and take your pain medication on time.

If you have chronic pain, your recovery time may be much longer, and you will be unlikely to return to your previous level of function. Therefore, you should be sure to have your TMJ assessed, so that you receive the best treatment for your condition.

Treating TMJ

The most common treatment for TMJ is called the jaw stabilization treatment, or Total Joint Replacement. This involves having surgery on your TMJ joint. During this surgery, a surgeon will straighten out any broken joint. The surgery takes approximately 30-45 minutes, and will be performed under general anaesthesia. Your TMJ will be checked, so that it can be properly aligned before the surgery, so that you can resume life without pain and stiffness.

This is the most invasive treatment for TMJ, and some patients may choose not to have it, as it will involve a long recovery time and many lifestyle changes. However, the surgery is extremely successful, as it can improve your posture, reducing the pain you experience and giving you the best chance of living a pain free life.

Conclusion

It’s clear that BOTOX is a fantastic option for alleviating TMJ and migraines. However, it is also important to understand the reasons why this procedure is sometimes not suitable for some patients. There is also the possibility of severe side effects, especially with short-term use. Therefore, it is important to discuss your treatment options with your doctor and have your TMJ assessed before making a decision.
