Overcoming the Limitations of Spasticity

Overcoming the Limitations of Spasticity

Wednesday, April 27, 2016 – 6:30 p.m.

Spasticity commonly occurs following a traumatic brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy. When the nerves fail to properly send messages to the muscles, spasticity can occur. The result is tight, stiff muscles that spasm, making movement difficult, painful, uncontrollable and often limiting motion.


It presents itself in a variety of ways that may include: a clenched fist;
a tight arm that is twisted up against the chest; the stiffening or tightening of the arms and legs; or a “catching” feeling in the arm or
leg during quick movements. This can limit activities in a person’s everyday life including dressing, eating, writing, walking and
difficulties with balance.


RSVPs are required. For more information or to register,
please call 630-909-7102.
