#Botox for #Migraines and #Headaches Some people are surprised to learn that migraines and headaches can be treated with Botox injections since it is most notable for cosmetic reasons. Botox has been approved by the FDA for the use of migraines since October 18, 2010: ‘The FDA says Botox injections have been shown to be effective in the prevention of migraines, which are debilitating headaches that cause intense pulsing or throbbing pain and affect about 12% of Americans.’ - webmd.com It is a mild paralytic that weakens and relaxes tight muscles. It was discovered in the 1980s and 1990s that those who were being treated with Botox injections for cosmetic purposes were experiencing tremendous relief from chronic headache and migraine symptoms. It was discovered that Botox seems to block certain neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) in the brain that signal for migraines. Migraine are headaches that tend to cause severe, throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually effecting just one particular area of the head or just one side of the head. The pain can sometimes be so intense, that it becomes debilitating. Those suffering from migraines often also experience, nausea and sensitivity to noises and bright lights. Those environmental factors can effect your central nervous system (your brain and spinal cord) and cause a dilation of blood vessels and chemical changes that produce a pounding headache and in some cases, unusual symptoms, such as a halo around the eyes or numbness. Botox tends to be very effective at blocking the onset of those symptoms. If you have had 15 or more migraine headache days per month, without using medication that have lasted 4 or more hours, and this has persisted for 6 months, you are a good candidate for this treatment. Additionally, if commonly-prescribed migraine medications have not worked for you in the past, this treatment could be right for you. #pain #pressure #head #treatment #prevention #feelbetter #painfree #wellness #health #md #regain #function #positivity #thursdaymotivation #nonsurgical #orthopedics #sports #regenerative #medicine 5 ♡ 0 ✍ March 22

Progress over perfection. It’s the words I live by most days in all areas of my life. Whether it’s with the foods I eat, what I did with my students that day, or the workout I did. Progress is what makes me stronger. I did not wake up one day and say hey, let’s do this. I slowly started seeing areas of my life where I needed changes. So I started making them. . . Making changes is scary. It’s the scariest thing in the world. Sometimes we need to dip our toes in the water and test it out. Other times we need to jump completely into it to stop the fear of something unknown. The only way you can decide is to have the 5 seconds of courage it takes to make a change. . . And you will get there a little at a time. Give your self some grace and be okay with progress. . This all stemmed because I wanted to post a progress photo of me today but it wasn’t happening. I wasn’t seeing changes I want to see. And that’s okay because there are changes happening inside of my body that I can’t see. For example: I feel more energized, I can stay awake longer in the day without a nap, I can do really cool moves in a workout I couldn’t do before... all of these things are showing the progress I am making in my health journey. . . It’s only day 4 of my March group and it is NEVER too late to sign up! Message me and let’s make some progress for your life 💪🏻 . . . #njteachers #teachertribe #teachersofinsta #readingteacher #braidedhair #writingteacher #teacherlove #elementaryeducation #teachertired #iteachreading #iteach4th #migraines #headachessuck #bodyconfident #iteachtoo #iteachfourth #fitteachers #jerseygirl #homegym #workoutfromhome #strongoverskinny #giveyourselfgrace #makeachange #eatcleandiet #selflove #teacherthings 7 ♡ 1 ✍ March 22
