Botox for Cervical Dystonia

Cervical Dystonia is a condition that causes the muscles in the neck to tighten in an uncontrollable way. The condition presents itself gradually. This causes great distress and pain to an individual in the neck, shoulder and head area. Here we will discuss an option that could bring relief to our patients!

What is it?

Cervical Dystonia, a condition characterized by chronic neck pain, neck spasms, abnormal tilt or posture of the head. This is caused by overactive muscles in the neck. The more the muscles strain, the more pain you feel and more likely the muscles are to spasm and tighten. There is currently no cure; however botox injections directly into the neck muscles can help reduce muscle spasm and muscle tension in your neck, shoulders and head. This could help alleviate your cervical dystonia symptoms.
