Chronic Migraine Treatment

Chronic Migraine Treatment Hertfordshire

At Alpha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic, Kevin Loughlin uses botulinum toxin (Botox ®) to treat chronic migraine.  Kevin is a qualified nurse and an Independent Nurse Prescriber.  He can assess your suitability for treatment and also administer the treatment.

The NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) guidlines are as follows:

NICE recommends botulinum toxin type A as a possible treatment for preventing headaches in some adults with chronic migraine (see below).

Who can have botulinum toxin type A?

You should be able to have botulinum toxin type A if you have chronic migraine (that is, you have headaches on at least 15 days each month, with migraine on at least 8 of these days) and:

  • you have already tried at least three different drug treatments to prevent your chronic migraine headaches, but these have not worked and

  • you are not taking too many painkillers or using them too often.

Professor Carole Longson, Director of the Health Technology Evaluation Centre at NICE said: “Chronic migraines are extremely debilitating and can significantly affect a person’s quality of life. We are pleased that our committee has been able to recommend Botox as a preventative therapy for those adults whose headaches have not improved despite trying at least three other medications and whose headaches are not caused by medication overuse.”
