Why is the MiRx Protocol More Effective than Botox for Migraines?

Many different treatment methods are touted as migraine solutions. Unfortunately, if you have been seeking medical intervention to facilitate pain relief for long, you probably are aware that long-term results are difficult to find. For migraines, we recommend the MiRx Protocol over Botox because we believe it is a solution more likely to provide long-lasting alleviation of symptoms.

The Botox approach to treatment of migraines

Botox was approved as a safe, medically effective way to treat migraines in 2010. It is worth noting that, though we think of Botox as a compound used aesthetically for wrinkle reduction (as in our practice), it was initially developed to combat muscle spasming, especially in the neck and face.

Botox is used as a migraine treatment via the administration of injections on various areas of the head and neck. Botox works by decreasing the interaction between the muscles and nerves through a process called selective muscle denervation. Essentially, it disables communication from the nerves telling the muscles in that region to contract.

According to WebMD, Botox injections can relieve migraine pain for as long as 90 days(1). You may find that Botox works well as a recurrent procedure. However, what you probably desire is real, lasting relief from your migraine headaches.

How the MiRx Protocol is different

The reason so many pain management specialists and migraine patients appreciate the MiRx Protocol is that it is not solely focused on short-term mirgraine relief. For those patients who follow a treatment plan lasting 4 to 6 weeks, the medical problem is often completely resolved.

The reason MiRx is so effective is because it utilizes a rigorous two-pronged approach:

  1. Medical treatment – Following an initial evaluation to determine if the Protocol is right for you, an authorized MiRx physician uses a device to apply medication to the sphenopalatine ganglion. The ganglion is an aggregation of nerves accessible within your nostrils. Often pain relief is achieved almost immediately.
  2. Physical treatment – What really sets the MiRx Protocol apart is the physical component, which combats the triggers of your migraine headaches. Modalities include physical therapy, spinal adjustments, nutritional improvements, relaxation techniques, and more.


At Wellness Plus Clinic, we recommend Botox to help regain a more youthful appearance. We recommend the MiRx Protocol to target your migraines holistically for the best possible outcome. Correct diagnosis of your headaches, though, is crucial. Get a free consultation today by filling out our request form.
