Neck Pain - Cervical Dystonia

Neck Pain

If you experience chronic neck pain or neck spasms, you may have cervical dystonia, commonly known as CD. Dr. Hakimian can diagnose possible signs of cervical dystonia as well as treat it. Botox® is a solution that may be able to help alleviate some of your symptoms and pain.

Signs of cervical dystonia include a head that is held or turned in an abnormal way, abnormal posture, neck muscle spasms (with or without pain), neck tightness, neck and shoulder pain, aches around the neck which become more severe over time, head turning or pulling to one side, shaking or tremors, symptoms that improve after sleep or rest, symptoms that are worse after stress or physical activity, and problems swallowing. If you experience any of these symptoms, you may be a candidate for Botox® for cervical dystonia.

Botox® helps to reduce the symptoms and pain of cervical dystonia by reducing muscle activity in your neck. Overactive muscles in the neck can cause the pain, tightness, and abnormal pull you are experiencing. In clinical studies, Botox® injections helped cervical dystonia patients with improved head tilt, less intense pain, less frequent pain, and improved ability to function in daily activities.

Dr. Hakimian will analyze your condition and decide whether Botox® may be an effective way to help alleviate your cervical dystonia pain. In which case, he will locate the exact muscles that are triggering your pain and administer a few tiny Botox® injections directly into those muscles. Relief may come right away, or it may take several hours, and can last. Relief can last for several months, depending on the patient.
