Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Service

Botulinum toxin (botox) treatments are available through the EMG laboratory in the Neuromuscular Disorders Unit to treat spasticity resulting from stroke, head injury, spinal cord injury or multiple sclerosis and dystonias.


In many cases, dystonias can be treated with botulinum toxin (botox). In the EMG Laboratory, the botulinum toxin is injected into specific muscles where it acts to reduce the involuntary contractions.

Patients are given personalized care and are monitored closely during treatments.
