    Yes Daze, I had Botox in both legs to relax muscles. I had it done using EMG needles, to ensure injection was made into correct area of the muscle.

    I was concerned that muscles might be too relaxed and hinder standing transfers, so got a half dose of 75 parts. It relieved spasticity to some degree, I subsequently got the full dose. It lasts about 3 months and I found it painless.

    Needless to say, make sure the person knows what they're doing and they inject using EMG.

    Ellie.

    Hi Daze, my Neurologist did suggest botox to help with tight and very painful inner thighs. I chose physio and hydrotherapy instead.
    So good luck with it. cheers Marie

    Hi Daze,
    My dad has spasticity following a severe stroke and has had two rounds of Botox in his legs to assist in relaxing the muscles as part of his rehab. It was requested and set up via his physiotherapists.
