Botox for Spasticity
Patients who are inflicted with spasticity, muscle stiffness, could see improvements in health using Botox. Spastic muscles are tight and make movement difficult. Individuals who are experiencing spasticity have difficulty with motor and oral activities such as walking, talking and feeding. Oral medications are prescribed and are often effective however; localized injections of Botox may give additional and greater results. Botox is an injectable drug that allows these spastic muscles to relax. This course of treatment is purified and safe to effectively reduce pain and muscle stiffness.
