Neurotoxin medicine is a relatively modern medical modality that leverages the therapeutic powers of the botulinum toxin. Botulinum can provide dramatic life-improving effects if it’s administered with the correct concentration and preparation. And our state-of-the-art techniques in Wayne, PA, utilize various neurotoxin medicinal products, including BOTOX®, Dysport®, XEOMIN®, and MYOBLOC®, to quash pain, alleviate spasticity, and treat numerous other conditions.

Additionally, Dr. Asare Christian is a board-certified physical medicine specialist and a rehabilitation physician with international research and experience in botulinum and neurotoxin medicine. So, please don’t hesitate to contact us at Aether Medicine if you’re dealing with the discomfort of spasticity or other musculoskeletal conditions.

What Can Cause Spasticity to Develop?

Spasticity is a condition of both the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. Patients with spasticity may experience spasms or stiffness in their arms, legs, or both. And since nerve impulses control muscular movements, common causes for spasticity include injuries or conditions that cause damage to the various structures of the nervous system. For example, spasticity and its symptoms often arise from injury to neural pathways, as these pathways send nerve signals from the brain to various body regions.

BOTOX-based treatments can also relieve a similar disorder called cervical dystonia, or CD. This neurological condition causes spasms or tightness in the neck muscles due to faulty neural action and can be unpleasant, causing pain, shaking, or involuntary neck turning.

What are the Benefits of Neurotoxin Medicine?

At Aether Medicine, Dr. Christian is dedicated to offering the most effective and efficient treatment modalities available. And although many may consider it solely a cosmetic treatment, BOTOX provides many benefits for patients with numerous conditions that can significantly hinder one’s lifestyle, detract from daily joy, or even make certain everyday tasks challenging or impossible.

Yet, neurotoxin medicine treatments have proven themselves to be both safe and efficacious. For further peace of mind, BOTOX and similar modalities are quick and easy, so patients won’t have to suffer inconvenience, pain, or downtime. The effects are also efficient, with many patients noticing improvements quickly, with results that may last for several months up to half a year.

Of course, results depend on multiple factors, including your unique needs and specific treatment plan, as some patients may better benefit from Dysport, XEOMIN, or MYOBLOC, rather than BOTOX. However, rest assured, as we’ll do everything we can to formulate an optimal strategy just for you. For your best possible outcome, you may need to receive spasm-reducing injections every 3 – 4 months, though we can give you a more specific timeline once we’ve gotten to know you during your comprehensive consultation.
