For over many years, Botox injection has been among the many treatment options for children suffering from cerebral palsy. It contains Botulinum toxin type A, a type of bacterial toxin that has proven to be effective in improving muscle movement among children with cerebral palsy.
Because cerebral palsy is associated with abnormal muscle contraction due to the brain’s defective stimulation of muscle nerves, Botulinum toxin type A restricts the muscles’ ability to receive nerve signals. Children with CP who suffer from dangerous muscle spasms and contractions might be able to benefit from this kind of treatment every 3-6 months.
However, Botox treatment can be especially expensive and possibly risky in some cases. If your child’s cerebral palsy was the result of a medical malpractice you should work to receive compensation from negligent parties. If you believe your child’s CP has been a result of another party’s negligence, consult our legal team at Driscoll Firm by calling (800) 900-7704 today.
