Botulinum Injection Program
Botulinum toxin injections into muscles may help reduce movements. Individuals with abnormal arm, leg or trunk positions or one of various other movement disorders such as dystonia, blepharospasms or hemifacial spasm may have dramatic benefit with proper injections. Botulinum toxin injections may also be used to treat excessive drooling, chronic migraines headaches and spasticity.
There are four toxins approved in the United States, and the Northwestern Medicine Parkinson’s Disease & Movement Disorders Center has access to all the approved toxins and experienced clinicians who can perform injections.
It is important to discuss with a physician the benefits and potential complications.
You may be eligible for one of our ongoing clinical trials. Find out how to join a study.
