Botox, or botulinum toxin A, is an injectable therapy which can help with spastic movements, discomfort and pain associated with cerebral palsy. The medication itself is made from a toxic chemical which is produced by the bacteria, Clostridium botulinum. However, when it is injected in very small doses into the muscles of someone who has cerebral palsy, it only affects the muscles in that area and does not make the person unwell.
