Medical BOTOX Injections
BOTOX (botulism toxin A) is used to treat a variety of disorders. We are amongst the leaders in its use and research. We use BOTOX to treat axillary hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating), tortocolliosis, spasticity, headaches, movement disorders, and various pain disorders. BOTOX is approved by the FDA for tortocolliosis, and hyperhydrosis. Allergan, the makers of BOTOX is a great resource for additional information on their product and its uses (wwwallergan.com). We have done many research studies of BOTOX for other uses including low back pain, neck pain, and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. We have several research projects ongoing presently.
BOTOX when injected into a muscle helps that muscle to relax. It also blocks certain pain receptors. These mechanisms allow its use for a wide variety of disorders. It lasts for 3 to 4 months. Our doctors can assess and discuss the potential use of this medication individually with you. We can discuss the risks and benefits with you to help determine the best treatment plan for you. We have had a lot of experience and success with this product. BOTOX use is determined on an individual, case by case basis.
