Botox and Myobloc Injections
Botulinum toxin injections are used to treat a variety of disorders related to abnormal muscle contractions and pain. Botox is the trade name for botulinum toxins A and Myobloc is the trade name for botulinum toxins B, which are forms of a naturally occurring substance derived from a type of food poisoning called botulism.
Botox injections are used to treat a broad range of conditions. These include:

- Headaches – Botox is used to treat both migraine and tension headaches.
