What is Cervical Dystonia?
Cervical dystonia – also known as spasmodic torticollis – is a condition in which in the neck muscles involuntarily contract. This causes the head to twist or turn to one side. It is an extremely painful condition, but one that is treatable.
Patients suffering from cervical dystonia have difficulty performing normal daily functions due to the abnormal position of the head. This includes things like driving, working on a computer or walking. The other element of this condition is the terrible pain that is associated with it. Seventy percent of patients state that their pain derived from cervical dystonia is moderate to severe. So people suffering from cervical dystonia not only have difficulties managing their daily lives, but suffer from substantial pain on a day-to-day basis.
Don’t Suffer From Cervical Dystonia Any Longer!
If you suffer from cervical dystonia, there is hope. At Discover Optimal Healthcare, we utilize revolutionary treatments to help you relieve your pain and return your life to normal. We use a treatment called Myobloc
Myobloc Therapy – which is short for rimabotulinumtoxinB – is an injection to treat patients with cervical dystonia. Myobloc is injected into the neck muscles to treat cervical dystonia directly.
Myobloc injections help strengthen the area around the neck and prevent the neck muscles from going into spasms. They have been shown to significantly decrease the severity of cervical dystonia. Myobloc treatments have also been shown to significantly reduce pain in patients. This ensures that treatments will help stop involuntary muscle spasms, return the head to a proper position and drastically reduce pain in your neck and head.
This treatment is fast acting, as most patients show significant improvement after just 5 days. Myobloc is also long lasting. The average treatment can be effective for up to 3 years. This means that myobloc treatments can return you to a normal lifestyle for long periods of time.
There is no need to suffer from pain and abnormal head position anymore. The myobloc treatment from Discover Optimal Healthcare is fast acting and long lasting to help you return to a normal, pain-free life.
