Botulinum for Torticollis

What is it?

Torticollis is a rare condition in which the neck muscles contract, causing the head to twist to one side. Botulinum toxin is a powerful poison that is made by a bacterium, called clostridium botulinum. The effect of the toxin is to weaken or paralyze muscle by interfering with the message that the nerve gives to the muscle to contract.

There are currently four brands of botulinum toxins approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of spasmodic torticollis in the United States.

What are the benefits?
Overall, botulinum toxin has been found to be a safe and effective treatment for a variety of disorders, including spasmodic torticollis.
