Botox injections are not used just for cosmetic treatments, they are also very helpful when treating chronic pain and muscle spasms. Botox is a neurotoxin. A neurotoxin called Botulinum, paralyses the nerve in the surrounding area of the injection, this cause the muscle to relax for a period of time. The Botox injections can be placed in the upper back and lower back, muscular area’s to help improve with chronic pain from muscle spasms. In the case of Migraine headaches Botox can be used on the forehead, scalp, neck, and shoulders to help relieve the pain. This injection is not placed near the spinal cord and is safe to be performed in the office setting without fluoroscopy.
