Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Botox for Neck Contracture (Torticollis)

Q. Will Botox straighten my neck/head? My neck is leaning to the left shoulder. It’s leaning to the point where I can’t put it up n straight..Will botox help straighten my head? If so what side do I get the injections on?

A. There is just not enough information on your inquiry. Contracture of the neck muscle(s) is one reason for your head bending to one side. The spectrum develops early and acute to chronic and requires proper history and evaluation. Botox is an option depending on the diagnosis of the problem. 

Please seek consultation with a Board Certified ENT Surgeon or Physiatrist (MD specialist in Rehabilitation Medicine). I wish you the best!
