Botox (botulinum toxin) is a neurotoxin protein produced primarily by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum, and other related species. It prevents the excretion of the neurotransmitter acetycholine from the axon ends of sensory nerve fibers, thereby causing temporary flaccid paralysis. The botulinum toxin A causes botulism. Botulinum toxin A is the most common of all types of botulinum toxin but also the most deadly, resulting in the death of about ten percent of patients treated with it.You may want to check out Calgary Botox for more.

Botox works by depleting the fluid in the muscles and impairing their activity. It blocks the action of acetylcholine on neurons in the muscle, causing a misbalancing in the firing patterns of nerve fibers. Acetylcholine is the neurotransmitter in the body that causes muscle movements. Because the toxin blocks its action, the nerves of the muscles do not fire properly or effectively. When the patient is asked to point, the muscles do not respond as they should because there is no movement in the muscles, just a static appearance of the parts moving in unison.

If you plan to use Botox to treat your muscles, be sure to tell your doctor that you plan to use it to deal with your bladder. Bladder problems are commonly treated using Botox; however, any blockage of the urinary tract by another internal organ, such as the bladder, can result in complications and need to be addressed by a different type of doctor. Botox can be used to treat muscle spasms in both the upper and lower urinary tract, but a separate treatment may be needed for the bladder.
