How does botox therapy work?

Botox therapy involves injecting a protein (Botulinum toxin) directly to an affected area in order to administer pain relief. Botox has been regularly used to treat pain and has been shown to work by relaxing the muscles in the area to which it is administered, and by limiting nerve function.

What do Botox injections treat?

Botox is considered a safe treatment, that is used for a wide number of ailments relating to overactive muscle movement, for example, post-stroke spasticity, post-spinal cord injury spasticity, and body spasms. It has also been used to relax clenching muscles, for example, those of the oesophagus, jaw, lower urinary tract and bladder, and it may also be used for improper eye alignment. Botox is also a great choice for the management of chronic pain, due to the nature of its interactions with the nerves of the body. Botox is particularly useful for migraines which have not responded to regular medical treatments.

If you suffer from any of the above conditions, botox therapy could offer an excellent solution as a pain management method, that is considered to be safe and efficient in a clinical setting.
