Botulinum Toxin Injections


Botulinum Toxin Injections (Botox, Xeomin, etc.)

The botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity. It has been approved for use in patients with chronic migraines, cervical dystonia, muscle spasms in arms and hands, severe underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis), urinary incontinence, and for the temporary alleviation of wrinkles in and around the face. The effects of botulinum toxin injections usually last for three to four months. These injections are not recommended for pregnant women and patients with egg allergies.

We offer botulinum toxin injections for chronic pain disorder, spine pain, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ syndrome), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), migraine headaches, CRPS (RSD, causalgia), osteoarthritis of the spine, lumbago, radiculopathy – cervical, thoracic and lumbar, piriformis syndrome, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, failed back syndrome, and occipital neuralgia.
