Botox ‘could help ease joint pain for veterans’

Mon

Botox treatments could help people with spasticity problems.

US veterans could soon benefit from Botox treatments to help ease the suffering of those with debilitating limb spasticity, it has been claimed.

The Montgomery Courier reported that when injected into muscles that have gone into spasm, the botulinium toxin is able to allow them to relax, restoring movement and easing pain.

“The purpose of the procedure is to assist patients in facilitating their rehabilitation goals and to reduce the pain caused by intense spasms,” said Dr Stephanie Sneed, director of the Polytrauma/Traumatic Brain Injury Programme.

“We find the use of Botox extremely helpful in improving a veteran’s quality of life.”

Elsewhere, the Manila Bulletin recently reported that individuals who suffer from excessive sweating could benefit from Botox treatments to get their situation under control.

The publication noted Botox injections can be a quick and relatively painless solution to the problem, as the botulinum toxin is able to paralyse the nerve cells which send the signals to produce the sweat.

Mon

People have faster check-ups when they have good oral health.

People who keep their teeth in good condition have faster check-ups with the dentist and suffer from less stress as a result, it has been claimed.

Dr David Mady Jr told the Windsor Star that it is important to keep up a regular oral health routine and while this will ensure a person’s teeth are in the best condition, it will also enable them to spend less time in the dentist’s chair when they come in for a check-up.

Dr Mady Jr noted: “Remember that no matter what is done for you when you come to the dentist, the most important thing is how you are with your dental home care.”

    My favourite part of Pearl Dental Clinic is my clinician, Dr Ehsan Esfahani. Dr Esfahani is very good at explaining my current status and my future treatment plan (Invisalign Full) he gives me great assurance and confidence that the outcome of my treatment will be as promised in my first consultation - Dr Esfahani is reluctant to make promises that he knows cannot be delivered. In addition to his excellent dentistry knowledge and professional manner Dr Esfahani is a genuinely nice person who is very welcoming, relaxing and a pleasure to have as my dentist. I should also thank Dr Esfahani's assistant and the gentleman on the front desk (Wednesday nights) who are both incredibly polite and helpful during every visit to the practice.
