A popular cosmetic treatment, botulinum toxin (BoNT-A), best known by the brand name Botox, may also be used to treat several different types of musculoskeletal disorders, according to a review published by researchers at Uniformed Services University (USU).
The researchers reviewed existing research and evidence from their practice that suggests BoNT-A injections can provide pain relief and functional improvement in some common conditions such as chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS), plantar fasciopathy, tennis elbow, and osteoarthritis.
