: Is there an age limit to when a person can get the benefits of botox or baclofen?
: I am 17 and want to know if these therapies will help me walk. My leg muscles haven't fully developed yet, and I have trouble with my hamstrings--they are really tight.
Hi Ryan my name is Dena. My son is 3 years old and just started to receive Botox. I am not sure if there is an age limit. Tylers doctor told me that he was eligible for it because he has never had any kind of surgery. Tyler was not walking last year at all. Now he walks with no help at all. My understannding is that Botox is only a temporary solution because eventually your body builds up antibodies to the Botox injections.
I hope that this was of some help to you. I fould out about Botox thr the internet. I will look it up again and see if it says anything about an age limit.
