Finding the right treatment for your chronic pain can be a difficult process. Treatment options like physical therapy don’t always solve the problem, and pain medications can lead to serious complications with your overall health. Botox injections are a cutting-edge solution to chronic pain that offers you reliable relief while helping you avoid risky or invasive surgeries.
Botox is a versatile treatment that can treat a number of different types of pain, including:
If you suffer from chronic pain, Botox can help restore your physical function and effectively manage your symptoms.
Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment well known for its ability to reduce the visible signs of aging. Botox is made from botulinum toxin A, a protein that can temporarily paralyze certain muscle movements that contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. When used as a treatment for chronic pain, Botox prevents the muscle spasms and painful nerve signals that contribute to your condition.
Botox typically starts to reduce pain in just a few days. Although Botox is a safe and effective alternative to surgery and other risky treatments, the results aren’t permanent. Depending on your condition, the effects of Botox can last for three or more months. You and Dr. Coccaro discuss the frequency of your follow-up appointments to help you maintain long-term pain relief.
Botox is ideal for cases of chronic pain that haven’t responded to conservative care. If you’re running out of non-surgical treatment options, Botox may be an effective solution for your condition.
To determine if Botox is right for you, Dr. Coccaro performs an in-depth evaluation, including a physical exam and review of your medical history. Depending on your symptoms, Dr. Coccaro may perform imaging tests like an X-ray or MRI. After your evaluation, you and Dr. Coccaro sit down to discuss your treatment plan and follow-up visits.
With the right care, you don’t have to live in pain. To learn more about Botox injections for pain relief, call Precision Pain Management, LLC, or book online today.
