Botox injections to the pelvic floor, also known as intramuscular Botox therapy or botulinum toxin injections, are a medical procedure used to treat various conditions that affect the pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor refers to a group of muscles that support the organs in the pelvic area, including the bladder, uterus, and rectum.
Botox injections to the pelvic floor are commonly used to treat conditions such as:
- Overactive Bladder: Botox injections can help relax the bladder muscles, reducing urinary urgency, frequency, and incontinence.
- Pelvic Floor Spasms: In cases of pelvic floor dysfunction or chronic pelvic pain, Botox injections can help relax the overactive muscles, relieving pain and improving overall function.
- Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome: Botox injections may be used to alleviate the pain associated with conditions like pelvic floor myalgia or levator ani syndrome.
- Vaginismus: Botox injections can help relax the pelvic floor muscles in cases of vaginismus, a condition characterized by involuntary muscle contractions that make vaginal penetration painful or impossible.
