If you suffer from chronic back and neck pain, as well as headaches, Botox injections may help manage your pain. The theory behind using Botox is to interrupt the signals between the nerve and muscles while increasing your range of motion. Botox must be administered through a licensed medical doctor in order to keep you safe since there are risks when using it with your nervous system.

Botox helps relax the muscles to decrease the pressure on the nerve that is causing you pain.

Advantages


One advantage to using Botox for chronic neck pain over oral pain medications is because the effects of the solution are local and does not cause side effects that oral pain medications tend to do, such as dizziness, fatigue, and sedation.

Another advantage is because Botox is used to target a small area, which comes in useful with chronic neck and back pain.
