If botulinum toxin therapy is indicated, the dosage is calculated. The doctor also determines the target muscles - the points of intramuscular injection of the neurotoxin. The botulinum toxin is injected directly into the muscle that needs to be treated for hypertonicity. The duration of the procedure, therefore, depends on the number of target muscles.
The botulinum toxin type A is injected using an insulin syringe. An important advantage of botulinum toxin treatment is the long-lasting effect of a single injection. The result is directly dependent on the correct injection point, the chosen dosage and the exact hit in the muscle.
The specialists at the Centre for Brain Stimulation have the necessary knowledge and extensive experience of botulinum toxin therapy in children with nervous system disorders. The treatment takes place in a supportive, relaxed environment that reduces the stress levels of both the child and the parents.
