Physician Huntsville: BOTOX for Pain Management

Introduction

Physician Huntsville: BOTOX® is useful for more than smoothing out wrinkles. In fact, it is indicated for treating painful muscle spasms and contractions in the neck (cervical dystonia), tension headaches, migraine headaches, back pain, and myofascial pain. BOTOX injections are used to block the nerve signals that trigger muscle hyperactivity. In many cases, the effects of BOTOX are greater and longer lasting than traditional steroid injections.

Treatment with BOTOX

Physician Huntsville: You can receive BOTOX injections for pain relief as an outpatient in your doctor’s office. Each treatment lasts for about three months. The injections may be repeated if they are successful.
