    Botox Therapy in Adults

    Hello my name is Jenny. I recently switched to a new orthopedic physician and he seems to believe that I would be a good candidate for the Botox treatment. I have tried to research it, but it seems as if all the research is on children. Has any of it been on adults? In addition, does anyone know a location that does the injections on adults? I can only locate childrens hopsitals. Any help or advice on the subject would be appreciated...

    Jen

    I'm sure you can do it, I don't see why not. The reason it works in kids with CP will still apply in adults with CP; you may be finding kid stuff because that's usually where most of the research and focus is concerned.

    When I did it, I had to go to a hospital where my ortho practiced. I'm sure your doctor would tell you a location.

    I know a lot of adults that get botox at children's hospitals. When I was going through the process (I was never actually approved for the injections) it was all at a children's hopsital.
