PRP for Migraines

PRP for Migraines

Individuals with myofascial TMD (temporomandibular disorder) are more likely to have a migraine.1 It is also thought that the tightening of temporomandibular joint muscles can cause migraines.

The masseter (chewing) muscle is a temporomandibular joint muscle, and PRP injections can reduce myofascial pain associated with masseter muscles in TMD patients . 2
