: I am considering botox injections for my 8 yr old daughter who has spastic quadraplegia, for her arms to help with dressing her. The doctor says she will give her the treatment but that it won't work! I would like to hear from people that have had both positive and negative experiences of this treatment.
My dayghter had botox injections in each of her hamstrings when she was 4. They worked great! The doctor told me that she would probably have to have them repeated every 6 months, but to this day, she is 7, she has never had any more injections. I would stay on your doctor about it.And check out all your options. This treatment may not be for your child.
