Botox treatment for CP

edited February 2018 in Cerebral palsy
My daughter has very mild cerebral palsy due to oxygen starvation to the brain when she was born 10 weeks early. She is 10 years old now and has had extensive physio throughout her life which has always helped tremendously as her condition is barely noticeable. However, recently she's been complaining of pain in her calfs and thighs and a friend recommended botox.

Does anyone have experience of this treatment as a way of relaxing muscles and combating pain?

Alternatively can anyone recommend a physio who specializes in children with cerebral palsy in the Lancashire/Greater Manachester areas?

Thanks a lot
Richard
