Botox for muscle pain

Hello!! My Botox can work for muscular back pain but you need to seek the advise from a Neurologist for the best information. As a plastic surgeon we use it for aesthetic purposes.

Thank you for your question.

Botulo-toxin helps for painful muscle cramps on neck (cervical dystonia) ,it can be used for the back or leg muscles but these type of injections should be administered by experienced in these fields doctors. Neurologists or specialists in muscle/skeletal disease or sports medicine can be the best for this use.
