Botox. At CompOrtho? You read that correctly! Known for smoothing out wrinkles on the face, Botox has been approved by the FDA to treat chronic migraine headaches in adults. The FDA says Botox injections have been shown to be effective in the prevention of migraines, which are debilitating headaches that cause intense pulsing or throbbing pain and affect about 12% of Americans.
Also, spasticity is a condition involving overactive muscle contractions. It can be described as hyperactivity of reflexes that normally protect against sudden stretching of a muscle. This condition can interfere with mobility and performance of activities of daily living. Over time, spasticity may lead to contractures, which involve loss of range of joint motion. Botox therapy is used to treat patients with spasticity that restricts function or causes pain. Dr. Vashi here at CompOrtho performs these injections! Call today to learn more! 262-764-5595.
