Abstract

This is the first report of the long term effects of intra-articular BoNT/A injections to treat chronic joint pain and the efficacy of repeated injections. Although this study was small, and uncontrolled the results suggest that IA-BoNT/A injections are an effective and safe treatment for chronic joint pain disorders.
