Our physicians treat many patients with Botulinum toxin injection therapy for several neurological conditions. This therapy is available for patients with blepharospasm, hemifacial spasms, cervical dystonia/torticollis, upper limb spasticity and other medical indications. There are two medications used to treat these conditions, Botox, Type A, and Myobloc, Type B botulinum toxin. When necessary, EMG guidance is used to identify the most active areas of muscle contraction for injection with Botox.
Conditions we treat
- Muscle spasticity
- Dystonias and other movement disorders
How it works
Botox® or Myobloc® is injected into the affected muscle, and neuromuscular transmission is blocked in that area, easing stiffness and decreasing the spasms. Since it is a localized injection, the rest of the body isn't affected. Botox® and/or Myobloc® iinjections are typically given every three months or more.
Upon referral for treatment from a physician, one of our physicians will perform an initial assessment and make recommendations for treatment.
Our staff will work with you and your insurance company to determine if your health insurance covers this therapy for your condition.
