Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
resistance training
Other: Resistance training
Neck muscle trainings effect on botulinum toxin efficiency

Detailed Description:

The purpose is also to find out patients subjective symptoms between injections. Hypothesis: Efficiency of the botulinum toxin is more powerful with the muscle exercise before injection.
