Botox and Writer’s Cramp

Botox and Writer’s Cramp

It seems they keep coming up with new uses for Botox. Now, you’re probably aware of the most common use. Botox can help wipe away wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles that cause them. It’s also been used to help people with everything from neck spasms to difficulty speaking. Well, the latest use? Writer’s cramp. According to a report from the Netherlands, in writer’s cramp, involuntary muscle contractions force a particular part of the body into an abnormal posture or movement. The abnormal contractions affect the hand and arm during writing. Now, during the study, after three months 70% of patients treated with botulinum toxin said their condition had improved, but the treatment does have downsides. It is not a permanent fix. The injections need to be repeated over time. But once again, it shows, with a little imagination, certain medications can be used for a wide variety of things.

Understanding Botox

Understanding Botox

Botox is being used more and more often for the fact that Botox is one of these medications which actually can help to paralyze muscle. In the paralysis of this muscle, you actually are able to get a release of spasm. Here’s the problem with Botox…it is a poison. It’s not something that can be taken lightly and it’s something, obviously, that you need a physician, not just a therapist, to take a look at. You want to make sure it’s evaluated and the treatment is done properly.
