Botox Injection for Spasmodic Dysphonia
Botox is a potent injection that is used for several medical concerns as well as cosmetic procedures.
The procedure of a Botox injection can also be referred to as OnabotulinumtoxinA injection.
It is made from a bacterium that causes botulism.
The toxin is removed and through a procedure it becomes sterilized and purified into a usable form of botulinum toxin type A.
This toxin acts to block nerves in the body that when functioning normally controls muscle movement.
The activity of the muscles is subsequently reduced dramatically.
Botox should be given by a trained provider.
