What can I expect?

Over the past 10+ years as Botox has become an emerging treatment for pelvic pain, Tracy has observed pelvic floor botox injections and assisted in the placement of botox injections. Now there is even more emerging research about Botox as an effective treatment for pelvic pain. In this webinar Tracy describes how and where the injections are administered, the mechanisms through which Botox treatment can be effective, and what kinds of people this treatment can help.
