Detroit, Michigan – Unfortunately, the reasons for neck spasms (cervical dystonia) are virtually unknown, however, what is known, Dysport is an effective treatment for muscle pain in the neck associated with spasms which can cause a tilted and/or turned neck.
To reduce abnormal head position and neck pain, Dysport is injected into muscles and reduces neck spasms associated with the cause of cervical dystonia. Our treatment is normally 3-4 times a year with no less than 12 weeks between sessions.
In some situations we may recommend physical therapy or in-home exercises which will improve the range and motion in your neck. We also compiled this list of online resources for you to learn more about neck spasms:
