Botox Treatments in the Buffalo, NY Area
Botulinum neurotoxin (Botox) therapy offers a breakthrough in the treatment of multiple musculoskeletal (skin and bone) and neurological (nervous system) conditions.
Botox is derived from a bacteria-produced toxin that is purified and diluted to the point of being extremely safe. Thus, it is a versatile medication that has been used safely for years in the treatment of neurological disorders such as cerebral palsy, blepharospasm and cervical dystonia. Over the last 10 years the understanding of the mechanisms of pain has greatly advanced and with it, the increased usage of Botox.
Our physicians administer Botox injections at our College Parkway and Orchard Park locations. Buffalo Spine and Sports Medicine is one of the few medical practices in all of Western New York to utilize this advanced medication.
Our physicians' extensive knowledge of muscle anatomy and function, coupled with the use of advanced electrodiagnostic and imaging tools, allows our physicians to precisely place the medicine in the specific target muscles.
At Buffalo Spine and Sports Medicine, our team is one of the few in the country that uses ultrasound imaging technology for visualization of affected muscles and guidance of injections. As a good solution for joint pain treatment and neck pain treatment, Botox injections will work in tandem with our physical therapy sessions to resolve your pain.
Our Botox treatments are then followed with state-of-the-art chiropractic care to retrain and reverse muscle imbalances that frequently lead to various painful musculoskeletal disorders. If you are dealing with painful musculoskeletal disorders and are looking for a solution, then Botox treatments may be right for you. We invite you to contact our offices today! We're proud to help patients across Buffalo, Orchard Park, Williamsville, Amherst, NY, and the surrounding areas. These disorders include the following:
Temporomandibular and orofacial disorders/dystonias
Botox has been found to be effective in relaxing key overactive orofacial (facial) muscles. As a result, patients can better tolerate orofacial physical therapy and utilization of therapeutic prosthetic devices. Treatment for these conditions is frequently undertaken with a team approach, including an orthodontist who specializes in temporomandibular disorders.
Excessive sweating can be a socially debilitating condition. It can be present in the armpit region, groin, feet and hands.
Onobotulinum (Botox) therapy can effectively decrease excessive sweating for up to 9 months and is recommended for patients who have not been helped by topical application therapy.
