Boy With Cerebral Palsy Walks For First Time After Botox Injections

Every medical treatment was unconventional at some point in time, so nontraditional treatment methods shouldn't necessarily be avoided. One mother was willing to delve into the unknown for the opportunity for her boy, 3, to have a better childhood. So far, that decision has paid dividends.

Aiden Farrrell was born with severe cerebral palsy. The boy's leg muscles were so painfully tight that it was excruciating for him just to try to straighten them. Unable to stand or walk, his mother researched a variety of treatments that could help her son. When she read about Botox injections, she kept an open mind. Now, her son is walking for the first time in his life.

Usually used for cosmetic purposes, such as smoothing wrinkles, Botox injections can be used to relax the contraction of muscles in cerebral palsy victims by obstructing debilitating nerve impulses. As a result, the patient's coordination and range of movement may improve.

However, Botox injections aren't a miracle solution to cerebral palsy. Physicians estimate that it's only beneficial roughly 50 percent of the time. Further, injections only carry a benefit for four to six months.

If your child's cerebral palsy was caused by medical negligence, it's important to consult an experienced attorney. A medical malpractice lawsuit can recover money damages to pay for various treatments such as Botox injections.
