Upper limb spasticity
Upper limb spasticity can occur in patients who have had a stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injuries, or Spinal Cord injuries. Botox is FDA approved to treat Upper Limb Spasticity.
It is a very effective treatment, and may allow patients to stop taking medications that at times cause drowsiness or other side effects. Injections are done with a small needle, are minimally uncomfortable, and can be repeated at 3 or 4 month intervals for continued benefit.
