What Are Some Benefits of Botox?

Read Transcript

Botox can be used for a variety of things, it can actually be used for any type of muscle spasm or spasticity. So I used to actually use it first for patients who had strokes or spinal cord injuries who had really tough time moving their limbs because of the muscle contraction.

I also use it in patients who had cerebral palsy where they had difficult time kind of loosening those muscles and being to be able to walk as carefully, or walk as easily. So Botox can also be used for other things such as abnormal sweating from the sweat glands, but generally speaking some of these uses they are off label, so in terms of pain at least, the chronic migraine is the main use of it.
