Muscle Spasms: Botulinum toxin can be injected into muscles to treat conditions like cervical dystonia (a painful neck muscle spasm), blepharospasm (involuntary eyelid twitching), and limb spasticity.
Chronic Migraines: Botulinum toxin is an FDA-approved treatment for chronic migraines. It is administered as multiple injections into the head and neck muscles to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches.
Hyperhidrosis: Botulinum toxin can be used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) by blocking the sweat glands’ activity in the affected area, such as the armpits, palms, or soles of the feet.
*Botulinum toxin is not FDA-approved for all spasms including post-traumatic spasm, isolated neck pain without involuntary movement, TMJ pain, etc.)
