Dysport and botox both can be used for muscles in spasm

Please see an experienced neurologist for the relaxation of the spastic muscles.  Dysport and Botox are roughly the same medicine, but the units are different and need to be "converted" from one to the other. Depending on the total number units of either product, there is greater risk of side effects when large numbers of units are used.

Both of these should do same thing for you . As long as you are treated by an experienced person you should get best result possible from either.

You need an expert to inject such a large muscle. Most complications occur because of injecting too much
