The Many Medical Uses of Botox

May 4th 2014 at 10:38 PM

American men and women in Los Angeles are increasingly turning to Botox for the purpose of maintaining a youthful appearance. What is not generally known is that Botox has a number of medical applications besides facial rejuvenation.

Botox injections work by paralyzing certain muscles and nerves, which has the effect of eliminating (or at least reducing) the appearance of wrinkles. The same physical effects allow Botox injections to treat health disorders that range from excessive sweating to migraine headaches. Injected into the upper areas of the body, the drug has been proven to reduce muscle strain and tension.

Used as an antispasmodic medication, Botox can reduce the muscular jumping associated with the neurological disorder dystonia and the twitching of the eyelids caused by the disorder blepharospasm. It can even be used to treat strabismus, which results in a misalignment of the eyes.

As a pain reliever, Botox is effective in reducing the aches associated with arthritis and, when injected into the genital region, it has been known to relieve the discomfort many women experience when having sexual intercourse.

As a rehabilitative tool, Botox has been used to combat bladder disorders caused by spinal cord injuries and the disorder multiple sclerosis, and in one case its administration partially restored the use of the arm and hand of a stroke victim. Whether it is used to treat serious disorders or minor annoyances, Botox injections may be the key to helping people in Los Angeles live happier and healthier lives.
