Spasticity clinic

Spasticity is a condition characterized by muscle hyperactivity. Muscles contract or tighten for no reason resulting in increased muscle tone or muscle stiffness that can alter one’s ability to function. If it remains untreated, it can cause muscles or tendons to shorten, which in turn leads to muscle spasms.
 
Spasticity can be linked to various neurological conditions such as a stroke, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, or head trauma. The injection of botulinum toxin is a proven treatment for focal spasticity. A group of highly specialized doctors leads our spasticity clinic. They provide patients with renowned expertise in the treatment of spasticity through ultrasound- and electromyography-guided injections of botulinum toxin.

Migraines

Often considered a banal ailment, the migraine is the 19th most incapacitating illness according to the World Health Organization (WHO). It is estimated that approximately 12% of women and 6% of men suffer from migraines. The impact of migraines should therefore not be overlooked. Although much research continues to be conducted on the topic, many patients still have to deal with this pain, which impacts their quality of life.

What is a chronic migraine?
A migraine is a neurological condition characterized by major recurring pain in the head. For the condition to be considered chronic, several criteria must be taken into account. First, the headaches must be severe, repetitive, and occur daily. The individual must have been affected by headaches occurring at least 15 days per month over the last 3 months. In addition, at least 8 of these headaches must meet the criteria defining a migraine without aura.
 
Treatment
Chronic migraines may be treated using botulinum toxin, which is approved in Canada for the treatment of several neurological conditions. BOTOX™ reduces pain and prevents the occurrence of future chronic attacks. It is a purified neurotoxin complex protein derived from Clostridium botulinum bacteria.  In addition to demonstrating very positive results, BOTOX™ is generally well tolerated by patients. Nearly 70% of patients treated with BOTOX™ noticed a 50% decrease in the number of days they experienced headaches. 

What is a physiatrist?

A physiatrist is a physician who specializes in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of different illnesses affecting the musculoskeletal and neurological systems. He or she coordinates the patient’s rehabilitation.
