Covers both the upper and lower extremities and how to select target muscles for specific deformities.
Includes illustrations and photographs to illustrate muscle relationships and correct insertion points.
Uses consistent labelling and coding throughout to provide an easy-to-follow, image-guided approach.
Presents information in two parts: Part 1 covers BoNT injections to individual motor points of muscles of the face, neck, trunk, and extremities, along with superb visual guidance. Part 2 discusses how to select target muscles for BoNT injections to treat deformities caused by muscle hyperactivity.

"This book is a comprehensive reference guide for residents and physicians who are looking for a resource for using surface anatomy to identify motor points for chemodenervation. It includes all of the commonly injected muscles for spasticity and dystonia, as well as the less common muscles (for example, the head and neck). It also provides additional tips for each muscle to facilitate successful injections. It includes different deformities and patterns of spasticity/dystonia, which other books generally do not include."
