Botox® Myobloc® Therapy for Dystonia, Spasticity & Pain

Botulinum Toxin (Botox®/Myobloc®) is a purified protein that comes from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It can be administered to patients only by trained and licensed physicians or physician assistants.

Botulinum Toxin is recommended for the treatment of Spasticity. This muscle control disorder can be brought on by stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and other neurologic diagnoses. It has also been proven effective in the treatment of headache, neck, back and shoulder pain. In addition, Botulinum Toxin is used successfully for excessive salivation/drooling and excessive sweating. Cosmetic treatments are also available, please contact our office for more information.

Procedure may be repeated every three to four months with the Botulinum Toxin, as long as no allergic reactions or other significant side effects occur and the condition responds to treatment from the previous injection. Repeat injections are not necessarily required for the remainder of the patient’s life. *Treatment appropriate for adults, adolescents and pediatrics
