for Muscle Spasm-Induced Pain
Guthrie neurologists offer Botox® therapy for neurology patients with recurrent muscle spasms or chronic muscle spasms who are experiencing severe pain. Since the purpose of using Botox® is to relax the muscles, it can also be used to control involuntary movement. The benefits of Botox® therapy can last up to three months.
To relieve the patient’s spasm, a small dose of Botox® is injected directly into the muscle at the site of the spasm. The latest in neurophysiology technology is used to pinpoint the most beneficial injection site or sites in order to cause the patient the least amount of discomfort. A neurologist must screen each candidate to determine whether Botox® is appropriate for the particular needs of each individual patient.
