Botox Treatment for Relief of Migraines and Spasticity in Bethel Park, PA
You have probably heard of Botox as a cosmetic treatment for facial wrinkles, crow’s feet, etc. What you may not know is that Botox injections can also be helpful for reduction of both spasticity and migraine symptoms.
Botox treatment for medical conditions should always be given under the supervision of a physician like Dr. Ausi at Neurology Specialists of Greater Pittsburgh. This is not a treatment you can have at a spa or salon.
Botox injections may not completely eliminate your migraines, but they are often effective at reducing the intensity or frequency of migraine symptoms. After an examination and consultation, Dr. Ausi will be able to tell you if Botox treatment is an option in your case.
Spasticity is the medical term for chronic muscle stiffness. Patients with multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and other neurologic diseases often encounter problems with spasticity. Botox treatment can be useful for relieving or lessening spasticity in these patients. Again, Dr. Ausi will inform you if this treatment is appropriate in your situation.
