    Question Botox for muscle relaxant??

    If you've read some of my other posts, you know I had acdf about 2 months ago but am still experiencing a lot of neck muscle pain. It gets really bad sometimes. Today my physiologist gave my 6 "trigger point injections" in my neck to see if that helps. Just wondering if anyone else ever had these and how it helped or didn't help you? Also, the dr. mentioned using Botox as a muscle relaxant. He is sending the paperwork in to see if my insurance will approve of this. Anyone else familiar with this? Thanks

    Ive heard of this too but isnt the goal for us to strengthen the neck muscles so they wont spasm and can hold the head up? If we paralize the muscles and weaken them is that a good idea will that pull disks in unfavorable ways? I know they do it though so maybe it is an OK thing.
