We all know Botox makes people look pretty.  A lot of people even heard about how it can help stop armpit sweating.  But did you know it has already shown an increase in the quality of life in Cerebral Palsy patients?

While Botox might not actually have shown to cure any diseases, it has been shown to have reduced a number of symptoms that have improved the quality of life in dozens of diseases, syndromes and disorders.

We’ve compiled a list based on a number of active clinical trials from the National Institute of Health and the Food and Drug Administration of various different ways they are getting Botox to work for.

*Note – this list includes uses that may still be in clinical trials, and not approved yet, while other uses are being actively implemented in the present time.
