If injury or stress has stiffened your muscles, a shot of toxin may relieve it.
Botulinum toxin, more commonly known as Botulinum toxin, has been shown to provide benefits for muscle spasms or stiffness when injected directly into the affected muscles.
While this potentially paralyzing toxin is commonly used to smoothen wrinkles and deep facial lines, experts say it can also provide relief on muscle spasm.
What is Muscle Spasm?
Muscle spasm is the involuntary contraction of a muscle or group of muscles that can cause discomfort. When a joint of a spine become inflamed or injured, the muscles surrounding the spine can spasm which causes limited range of motion and low back pain.
Muscle spasm is commonly treated with muscle relaxants. This drug inhibit muscle contractions by relaxing or ‘sedating’ the muscles. Exercise is another way to treat muscle spasm. Stretching the muscles can help prevent strain, tear or stiffness of the muscle.
However, another way to treat muscle spasm is by administration of Wrinkle reduction treatment . Wrinkle reduction treatment therapy can be used for spasticity that causes pain or limits function. Often, the spasticity affects the muscles of the arm, leg, neck and face.
How Does Wrinkle reduction treatment Work for Muscle Spasm?
Wrinkle reduction treatment is a nerve impulse blocker. The toxins adheres to nerve endings, which then prevents the release of transmitters that activate the muscles. This chemical transmitter carries the signal to the brain telling the muscle to contract. Once the signal is blocked, the muscle does not spasm.
Wrinkle reduction treatment for muscle spasm is injected directly into the affected muscles. However, the effect of Wrinkle reduction treatment gradually disappear and so, the treatment may be repeated as often as every 3 to 6 months.
Wrinkle reduction treatment therapy is done as an outpatient procedure. Small electrodes are secured using tape to the skin over the affected area. Then the electrodes are attached to an EMG (electromyography) machine. EMG machine is used to ensure needle location before administering the drug to ensure the right muscles are identified.
Then your doctor will inject little amount of Wrinkle reduction treatment in different locations along the muscle group.
What to Expect After the Treatment
It is important to note that Wrinkle reduction treatment is an effective treatment for the relief of muscle spasms and not a cure. Since every patient is different, the extent of relief will vary from person to person. You can resume your activity gradually and carefully after Wrinkle reduction treatment injection. Occupational or physical therapy may be advised after injection for better results. Some common side effects include redness, pain or discomfort on the injection site.
