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.
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.
I was referred by my work to see Professor Saxena for my back pain. It had starting taking over my life and I was struggling with work and simple things such as playing with my 6 year old son. He diagnosed facet joint syndrome and I had radiofrequency treatment, all within 2 weeks of seeing him. This procedure has changed my life and I would strongly recommend him.
Treatment very good. Unfortunately, this cream is not available on the NHS
I have been seeing Professor Saxena for nearly 6 months, for my phantom limb pain. I was referred to him as he is an expert in this area. I have found him very knowledgeable and supportive. I have found great benefit with cannabis oil.
I saw Professor Saxena for my trochanteric bursitis. He provided same day ultrasound based injection. It was amazing to be pain free after nearly 18 months in constant pain.
Professor Saxena is very compassionate and empathetic; particularly around the daily impact and challenges that chronic pain can have. He takes time to talk through your present pain concerns, before suggesting different avenues of pain management.
I have suffered with pain for over 20 years. I cannot express enough gratitude to you for dealing with me so efficiently to the entire team of Professor Saxena and for providing my treatment, which I had so long awaited, so quickly.
We saw Dr. Saxena for my daughter’s pain. He explained about CRPS and helped refer her to the children’s CRPS programme at Bath. She is making slow but definite progress. We are really grateful for his help.
I have suffered with headaches for the last 10 years. Professor Saxena was really helpful in explaining my condition to me. With his help I was able to come off all my medicines, which were probably making my pain worse. My headaches are still there but I am coping better with those. It is rare to meet such excellent professionals like Professor Saxena.
Many thanks to Professor Saxena and his amazing team. Esp Mollie who has been amazing in arranging our appointments and dealing with insurers.
My mum was unable to have knee arthritis surgery and so we saw Professor Saxena. He has developed radiofrequency treatment for the nerves of knee which has been remarkable for my mum. Thank you.
Very polite, thorough gentleman. Excellent doctor. Never had anyone explain my condition in so much detail to me, as he did.
I was referred by my spinal surgeon. Professor Saxena really helped me deal with my back pain. I had radiofrequency treatment of my sacroiliac joint and that has helped me enormously with my hip pain. I am slowly getting back to my normal self.
I have been under the care of Professor Saxena for my botox treatment for migraines. He is a an amazing doctor.
Great explanation and possible options for treatment to improve my condition.
My mother (84 years) was referred to Professor Saxena, by her GP. We had to cancel her appointment twice, at short notice, due to her being in severe pain. Professor Saxena’s secretary was very polite and helpful and helped arrange another appointment for us. Professor Saxena was very courteous and professional. Our consultation over-ran but we never felt rushed. He spent nearly an hour with us and explained all options in detail. We had never been told about most of these things.
I was referred to Professor Saxena for pain after I had a fractured vertebra in a car-crash. He tried a number of treatments; as I had a lot of side-effects with medicines. I had ablation treatments with radiofrequency and also nerve blocks which finally helped control the pain.
I am a yoga teacher and have suffered with piriformis syndrome for nearly 2 years and nothing had worked for me. I saw Professor Saxena, who recommended and performed a botox injection. I have been pain-free since then except for an occasional twinge. I am so grateful.
We saw Professor Saxena for my husband’s back pain. He underwent nerve ablation treatments which have really helped. The hospital organised physiotherapy after the procedures which was also outstanding.
Excellent consultant. The treatment I’ve received to date is second to none.
I would certainly recommend Professor Saxena to friends. All procedures have been explained in a concise manner ensuring I fully understood the course of action and any further treatment. All staff are very friendly in Spire Cardiff with minimum wait time.
