Botox the Best Treatment for Severe Neck Spasm

I have had terrible muscle spasms in my neck and shoulders for 30 years. It is constant and painful. On a scale of 10 for relief, the best chiropractors might make a 2 and the treatment lasts maybe a few weeks. TENs gave me a relief of 4 and lasted a couple of weeks.

Flexeril is a 1 to 2, and more effective coupled with narcartics. But BOTOX is AWESOME! I had 7 shots in each side from the edge of my shoulders up to high on my neck. The relief was easily an 8, and lasted several months. It was the best I had felt since the problem started. It was an experimental program at the VA, and I haven't been able to get any more shots from them.

I guess they think it's preferable to have me taking narcotics and muscle relaxers. If I had any kind of income I would gladly pay for the treatment.

It was quick and nearly painless. They seemed to know exactly what they were doing.
