Botulin toxin has been proven and tested to reduce muscle tone effectively for several months. Botox is indicated for pain treatment due to tension headache, migraine, chronic back pain, and myofascial pain syndrome (MPS).
MPS is part of the temporomandibular joint disorder. Botox applications every three months reduce muscle tension resulting in the elimination pain in the face and jaw.
