Spasticity Management

Spasticity is a common condition that can affect individuals with various neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, or spinal cord injury. It involves muscle stiffness and involuntary muscle contractions, which can impact movement and daily activities. At RelievUS, we specialize in spasticity management to help individuals regain control and improve their quality of life.

Understanding Spasticity

Spasticity occurs when there is a disruption in the normal communication between the brain and the muscles. This disruption can lead to muscle tightness, spasms, and difficulty with movement. Common symptoms of spasticity include:

  • Muscle stiffness
  • Muscle spasms or cramps
  • Involuntary muscle contractions
  • Difficulty with fine motor skills
  • Impaired mobility and gait (walking)

Spasticity Management at RelievUS

Our team of experienced specialists at RelievUS is dedicated to helping individuals with spasticity regain control and independence. We offer a comprehensive approach to spasticity management, including:

  • Medications: Depending on the severity of spasticity, medications may be prescribed to relax muscles and reduce muscle stiffness. Our experts will carefully assess your condition and recommend the most suitable treatment.
  • Physical Therapy: Our skilled physical therapists work closely with patients to develop customized exercise programs that focus on stretching and strengthening muscles. These exercises can help improve flexibility and mobility.
  • Occupational Therapy: For individuals experiencing difficulties with everyday tasks due to spasticity, our occupational therapists provide training and adaptive techniques to enhance independence.
  • Botox Injections: In some cases, Botox injections may be recommended to target specific muscles that are affected by spasticity. This can provide temporary relief and improve functional abilities.
  • Orthotics and Assistive Devices: We offer guidance on the use of orthotic devices and assistive technology to support mobility and make daily activities more manageable.
  • Surgical Options: In severe cases of spasticity that do not respond to other treatments, surgical interventions may be considered, and our team will provide expert guidance on these options.
