A tiny article buried on p. 6 of The Desert Sun reports that Botulinum can improve "tiptoe-walking" common in children with Cerebral Palsy, according to a group studying this treatment in Chicago.
The treatment was reported as effective in about 50% of cases tested, including continued improvement for two years after the injections were stopped.
"The toxin enabled some children to walk without braces and to ride tricycles.", says the report. The full report is published in the November issue of Pediatrics Magazine.
