Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a neuromuscular blocker. When injected in small doses in specific areas, the active ingredient in Botox weakens or paralyzes muscle movement or blocks the transmission of nerve signals to get the desired results. 

Most people are familiar with Botox as a cosmetic injection that temporarily smooths out facial lines and wrinkles, but Botox has many other uses. 

Complete Neurological Care offers many innovative medical treatments to help you feel better, including Botox injections.  

What are the medical uses for Botox?

Complete Neurological Care uses Botox injections to treat neurological and pain conditions. Some of the medical uses include:

Headaches

Botox injections relax muscles and ease tension for those suffering from chronic headaches. These injections also reduce the number of migraine episodes in people with chronic migraine headaches (15 or more migraines in a 30-day period). 

Cervical dystonia

Cervical dystonia is a rare condition that causes involuntary contractions of the muscles in the neck. Botox injections are one of the primary treatments for cervical dystonia. These injections work by temporarily stopping the involuntary muscle contractions. 

Frequent blinking

Frequent blinking, also known as blepharospasm, is the involuntary twitching or movement of the eyelids. People with frequent blinking get relief from Botox injections. 

Like cervical dystonia, Botox injections temporarily stop the muscle activity that causes involuntary blinking. 

Hemifacial spasm

With hemifacial spasm, you have involuntary muscle twitching on one side of your face. Botox injections temporarily stop the muscle movement to ease symptoms. 

Excessive sweating

Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, also benefits from Botox injections. With excessive sweating, Botox injections block the nerve signals that initiate the sweat response, reducing the amount you sweat. 

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder

TMJ disorder is a chronic pain condition. Botox injections may help alleviate jaw tension and headaches that come with TMJ.
