In a world filled with constant demands and pressures, it’s no surprise that stress often manifests physically, particularly in the muscles of the upper back, neck, and shoulders. When most people think about Botox, they think about cosmetically reducing wrinkles. However, Botox can be used for a wide range of common issues, such as reducing muscle pain and tension that is held in the shoulder and neck region, called Trapezius Botox or “TrapTox”.
How TrapTox works: Stress, poor posture and repetitive movements can lead to muscle tension and discomfort in the trapezius muscle area, causing headaches, neck pain and reduced range of motion. Injecting a neuromodulator such as Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport into specific trigger points can ease the tension and pain in the muscle. In addition to easing tension in the neck and shoulders, TrapTox cosmetically elongates the neck, contours the shoulder area, and improves posture.
