BENEFITS OF DYSPORT INJECTION
Dysport 500 IU Injection is used in adults to treat muscle spasms around the eyes, in the face, neck, arms, shoulders and legs. It is also used in children with cerebral palsy (aged two years or older), to treat muscle spasms in the legs, to improve their walking. It also effectively relieves cramps in the arm muscles of affected children. By stopping the release of chemicals that work between nerves and muscles and cause muscle contractions, it stops the abnormal muscle contractions called spasms. This helps reduce cramps and provide relief. In this way, it improves the quality of life. It is given as an injection by a doctor or nurse and should not be self-administered.
