Giving Hope to Your Patients Who Live Life on an Angle

It's something that most people take for granted, being able to walk down the street, head held high and straight. However, the reality is much different for your Cervical Dystonia patients. To those who have Cervical Dystonia, also known as CD or Spasmodic Torticollis, it is difficult to keep their head held upright. Painful muscle spasms often cause their head to tilt to one side as well as giving them jerky movements.

BOTOX® is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment, and some women are BOTOX® obsessed, getting their treatments every few months since they were in their twenties. As great as BOTOX® is, some patients do run into a problem after a while when their BOTOX® treatments just do not seem to work as well anymore.
