Spasticity: Exercises & Tutorials

Spasticity, which is a main cause of disability in many neurological conditions, is a tightening or stiffness of the muscle due to an involuntary increase in muscle tone and an exaggerated response to the muscle being stretched.

Spasticity can range from a mild feeling of constant tightness to severe uncontrollable spasms, which cause movement restrictions.  These restrictions can be painful and lead to less movement -->increase weakness--> increase spasticity.  It is a vicious cycle so join us today to focus on ways to help strengthen the body to decrease spasticity!
