Botox for Back Pain?

Botox - it's not just for wrinkles anymore. The history of botox is a curious one to me, considering that it is made from the same bacteria that causes botulism food poisoning. Before it was the "cure" for wrinkles, it was used to treat muscle spasms of the face as well as cerebal palsy. Well, botox is now being studied as a means of treating chronic back pain.

Painfully tight back muscles are injected with botox which can stop or reduce muscle spasms by blocking nerve signals to the affected muscles. No troubling side affects have been reported, but as it is still being studied it is impossible to guarantee that a botox injection is an effective and safe treatment for back pain.

I guess with this treatment you would have less of those troubling back wrinkles too. Just kidding.
