    Hello. My sone is nearly 3 and had botox injections in his hamstrings, calf muscles in January. He walks with a crouch gait on his toes and is unable to sit independantly. Whilst he was under anaesthetic for the botox he had casts made of his legs for splints to keep his ankles at 90 degrees. Following botox ther were no side effects at all and he was able to maintain flat feet much better. He had this done privately in Australia. I am however struggling to find someone to repeat the procedure now in the UK. Amanda
