    Botox smooths over bladder problems for injured

    Botox smooths over bladder problems for injured

    AUSTRALIA'S biggest trial of Botox -- a toxin most commonly associated with cosmetic surgery -- aims to put an end to the embarrassing bladder weakness experienced by patients with spinal cord injuries.

    And trial participants are already hoping the West Australian Government will come to the party and provide funding to allow them to continue receiving the treatment.
    Commonly used to smooth out wrinkles, Botox blocks the sensory nerve signals being sent from the bladder, while relaxing the muscle.
    Chelsey Wilkinson, who is paralysed from the waist down after a car accident, said her Botox injection, directly into the bladder, had given her more confidence to socialise in public without the threat of losing control of her bladder. The 28-year-old said that, before the treatment, she had to interrupt her full-time job to visit the bathroom every one or two hours. But things improved dramatically after her injection.
