Migraine treatment on offer
Migraine Awareness week was last month and during the week we raised awareness of this debilitating condition. Migraine is a very common and relatively invisible cause of potential disability and suffering. It is recognised by the World Health Organisation as the third most disabling condition in the world, and in the UK 5.85 million adults are affected by this condition.
An expert in his field, Sportswise pain medicine consultant Dr Intazar Bashir, has brought to the clinic a relatively new treatment of botulinum toxin (botox) injections for those that suffer with chronic migraine. Chronic migraine is defined as headaches occurring on 15+ days each month, at least half of which have migranous features.
If you are interested in finding out more about this treatment then please call reception to book a consultation with our pain medicine consultant to see if this may be an appropriate treatment for you.
