HEADACHE & MIGRAINE THERAPIES
Note: The treatments mentioned below are covered by your medical benefits & Alberta Health.
Chronic headaches, migraines and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues can interfere with employment, relationships and quality of life. Geographically Calgary, Cochrane and surrounding areas have been shown to have a higher incidence of these conditions. There are now a variety of safe and effective options to help treat and resolve these symptoms including abortive and preventative medications, supplements, Botox injections, and biological agents. At Synergy these agents can be complemented with an integrative approach where psychological, musculoskeletal and functional contributions are also addressed.
BOTOX® Migraine injections can reduce the frequency, duration and intensity of your migraines by 80% by the third treatment.
It is recommended that you receive your BOTOX® treatments for migraines 12 weeks apart.
Book your initial assessment to see if BOTOX® Treatment is right for you.
How does Aimovig work?
In your body you have CGRP (calcitonin gene-related peptide) and CGRP receptors. CGRP attaches to and activates the receptor, which may play a key role in migraine. Aimovig blocks the CGRP receptor so CGRP cannot attach to it. Aimovig is the first and only migraine preventive treatment designed to block the CGRP receptor.
