This study continues the work already done investigating the use of botulinum type A toxin (Botox A) for relief of muscle pain. A specific Botox agent called Dysport ® was used in patients with upper back pain. Dysport® has a much higher biologically active dosage compared to Botox®. All patients had been diagnosed with a condition called myofascial pain syndrome (MPS). MPS is described as chronic muscle pain from shortened or contracted muscles. Trigger points (TrPs) are often part of the clinical picture. TrPs are areas of hyperirritable spots. When pressed or stimulated, TrPs cause a predictable pain pattern. Patients included were men and women between the ages of 18 and 70 years. All had MPS with at least 10 TrPs present in the neck or upper back. Symptoms had been reported for at least six months.

Besides pain, other symptoms might provide diagnostic clues like muscle weakness which typical in polymyositis. If anemia is present, then sickle cell disease is more likely. Both polymyositis and sickle cell disease can lead to the most severe form of muscle di...
