What happens during Botulinum Toxin injections for children with Cerebral Palsy?

Two children aged 6 and 13 with Cerebral Palsy have Botulinum Toxin injections to reduce muscle spasticity. Niall gets sedation medication and Ryan uses Gas and Air (laughing gas, Entonox) so they don't feel sore when they have their injections.
