QUESTION

How Much for an Injection in Arm? I've Heard a Shot In the Arm Can Help a Quad's Hand Move?

Understand that botox shot into the arm made a quad's hand moveable enough to use it. How much for an injection in my quad son's elbow to help him move his hand? And, is this safe?

ANSWER

botox for spastic paralysis

Thanks for your question This is a complex question that you should consult a neurologist to get a qualified answer. Botox can be used to treat spastic paralysis by _increasing_ paralysis of overactive muscles. Botox will not work for flacid paralysis or work to reverse paralysis. In addition, if botox is appropriate, it would likely be covered by insurance. Hope this helps.
