Botulin toxin injection in neurology

Botulin toxin is produced by a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. It acts on the neuromuscular junction. It is well known for its aesthetic use against wrinkles. But it is also an excellent medication for many neurological problems. Botulin toxin injections are indicated for muscular hyperactivities, such as dystonia (for example, at the cervical level, otherwise known as spasmodic torticollis), spasticity of the upper or lower limbs (for example, due to a stroke), muscle spasms (for example, in the face) and certain types of tremors (for example, that of the head). Injections can also be used in severe cases of migraines or excessive salivation.
