Is Botox Right For You?

Why this resource is helpful:

Quoted From:

"While you may be familiar with Botox as a leading drug to treat facial lines and wrinkles related to aging, at Corvallis Pain Management in Corvallis, Oregon, the team of practitioners uses Botox to treat men and women suffering from dystonia, spasmodic torticollis, and migraines.
Botox is a drug derived from a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. It temporarily blocks various, targeted nerves and paralyzes specific muscles in the treatment area. Your provider might need to use ultrasound or other types of imaging to help guide the injection to the proper location.
In safe and small doses, the team at Corvallis Pain Management might recommend Botox to treat any of the following:
Chronic migraines
Spasmodic torticollis
Other neck and shoulder spasms
Once your muscles and nerves relax following the injection, your pain should subside almost immediately.
Dystonia is a complex condition that causes your muscles to contract involuntarily, and you may experience mild to severe repetitive and twisting movements as a result. These painful contractions can significantly interfere with your lifestyle.
Dystonia occurs in three forms:
Focal dystonia: affects one part of your body
Segmental dystonia: affects two or more adjacent parts of your body
General dystonia: affects all parts of your body
If you have dystonia, your provider identifies which type you"re suffering from to provide the most personalized treatment."
