Botox is a great solution for Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) is a chronic pain disorder characterized by the presence of trigger points. These in turn can cause pain in the muscles. This can be the result of a repetitive motion used in a job, hobby, or stress-related muscle tension that causes a repetitive contraction of a muscle. This can therefore create long-term spasms which can be very difficult to live with.
Fibromyalgia is widespread musculoskeletal pain. Fatigue and sleep, mood, and memory issues often accompany this condition. In addition, research shows that this condition affects the way the brain and spinal cord process painful and nonpainful signals.
Although there is no official cure, MPS is treatable. Small injections of the Botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) are a great treatment option for those living with Myofascial Pain Syndrome. These injections produce prolonged muscle relaxation and easily target the affected muscles. For instance, The Pain Evaluation & Treatment Centre in Tulsa conducted a study for this purpose. They found that 70% of patients with MPS who received the BTX-A injections reported remarkable pain relief for 4+ months.
Similarly, Botox has been deemed a “miracle cure” for Fibromyalgia. Just like Myofascial Pain Syndrome, there is no official “cure” for Fibromyalgia. However, patients who have received Botox injections have reported relief from tender and pain points. This relief can last for up to three or four months.
Above all, a vast number of research reports advocate the use of BTX-A injections in the treatment of the Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
