FDA Approves New Treatment for Lower Limb Spasticity
Spasticity is a neurologic condition causing muscle spasms and pain commonly associated with stroke, cerebral palsy, or stroke. Botox was initially approved for upper limb (arm) spasticity in 2010. Injections are performed every three months in the effected muscles to reduce muscle spasms, tightness and pain. This can improve function or walking and can reduce pain.
Dr. Martin Taylor provides this treatment option to his patients. As an expert in Botulinum Toxin Treatment, he also trains other physicians in Ohio and around the country on the proper use and techniques in Botox Treatment.
