Has anyone heard of Botox being used for CP? Exactly how and where is it applied? Would anyone think this could be used instead of meds? I'm only referring to sporadic use of it, not daily. Anyone heard of such thing?
Quote from bsjones:Hope,
Our 3yo son's ortho doctor wanted him to have botox which would be injected directly into the affected muscles (thigh, etc.) while he was unconscious (general anesthesia). It would last 3 months or so, and would allow more progress in PT. We decided to have the SDR instead. I've heard that the botox can be helpful, but is not permanent.
Hope this helps and good luck!
