Whether you suffer unbearable pain from acute or chronic migraines, there’s a new treatment option available that can significantly enhance your quality of life. At The Center for Neurology and Neurophysiology, PA, in Southlake and Frisco, Texas, the qualified neurology team offers CGRP injections, the latest innovation in migraine pain treatment. If other migraine treatments haven’t worked for you, schedule a consultation online or by phone to learn more about the benefits of CGRP injections.
Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) injections are the first targeted preventive therapy specifically created to help sufferers avoid migraines.
The CGRP protein, naturally found in your body, triggers a migraine by causing inflammation in the coverings of your brain. To prevent the development of a migraine, injections contain antibodies to fight back against this inflammatory response of the CGRP protein.
The results of CGRP injections for the prevention of migraine pain can be significant within a month of treatment. The Center for Neurology and Neurophysiology provider working with you can develop a treatment plan based on your migraine frequency and medical history, determining the right initial dosage to put a stop to your migraines.
CGRP injections not only address the frequency of your migraines, but they can also effectively alleviate the severity of pain and the duration of the headache. Even if you suffer from less frequent, acute migraine headaches, you can still benefit from this injection therapy.
Your provider can also use CGRP treatment as a complement to Botox® injections for migraine headache relief. The goal of this combination treatment is to get you as close to zero headache days as possible.
Your provider will teach you how to inject the medication at home, where the first three treatments typically take place, either on a monthly or quarterly basis.
Your provider performs the fourth injection via an intravenous (IV) infusion every four months in-office for your convenience.
CGRP injection therapy is an effective treatment for both episodic migraines and chronic migraines. You may be a good candidate for CGRP therapy if other migraine treatments haven’t been effective in reducing the number of migraines you experience.
Your provider can determine if CGRP injections are right for you based on your health history. The injections are safe for people of all ages, even if you have underlying medical conditions, such as heart disease, because the therapy has few side effects.
When other migraine treatments have failed you, learn more about CGRP injections by calling The Center for Neurology and Neurophysiology or use the convenient online booking feature to schedule a consultation.
