Botox for Headaches!

Dr. Chang now offers botox injections for migraine headaches! Given that most insurance companies do not cover this therapeutic procedure for headaches in spite of its documented effectiveness in the literature, most patients will have to fail or respond poorly to medications before considering this option. Click here for more informtion.

HOWEVER, if neck spasms occur which trigger headaches, botox injection for the neck spasms (and not necessarily for the headaches) may be covered by insurance.

Botox injections are performed every Friday afternoon by Dr. Chang. Other disorders that Dr. Chang treats with botox injections include spasmodic dysphonia, TMJ, cricopharyngeal spasms, vocal cord dysfunction, chronic cough, and head & neck muscle spasms/twitches. We do NOT provide botox injections for cosmetic reasons (ie, wrinkles). For that service, please contact your local plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
