Botox Offers Miracle Cure For Cerebral PalsyDate: April 30, 2013
A brave three-year-old has taken his first steps on his own after having Botox injections in his legs. Born with cerebral palsy, he was previously unable to walk or even stand due to blocked nerve impulses, but the cosmetic wrinkle eraser has proved to be a miracle cure for the tot. Previously when the toddler had tried to walk his muscles tightened up to such an extent that he was unable to straighten his legs without crippling pain.
His parents had searched the internet for possible treatments and wondered whether Botox could be the solution. Whilst used most commonly to treat wrinkles, it can also be put to work on nerves in other parts of the body, in this case by unblocking the nerve impulses that were restricting the toddler’s movement. 12 injections of Botox were used to treat his legs, with miraculous results.
The little boy had suffered numerous health problems after been born prematurely at twenty-nine weeks, weighing just three pounds. When at 8 months he was struggling to sit up, his parents realized that there may be something wrong with him. His legs then proceeded to tighten up to the point that he was unable to straighten them. The effects of each treatment of Botox will now last for 4 – 6 months, and the little boy is on the waiting list for nerve surgery that will provide a more permanent cure for his condition.
