Treatment for spasticity

Spasticity is a disorder of muscle tone associated with damage to the central nervous system (the brain, brain stem and spinal cord): it usually appears a few weeks after the onset of a neurological injury. Spasm is a sudden and involuntary contraction of one or more muscles.

Whether it is after a stroke, a multiple sclerosis attack or after a spinal cord injury, it is often necessary to fight against spasticity, which can be functionally disturbing on the one hand (making walking more difficult, preventing the opening of the hand, sleep disturbance, generating pain…) but can also lead to musculo-tendinous and articular complications (retractions, joint ankylosis…).

The Neuro-Concept centre specialized in neurological rehabilitation and adapted physical conditioning is engaged in the fight against spasticity in different ways: specific physiotherapy, functional electrical stimulation and the use of robotic therapy, thus allowing to have results on spasticity but also to prevent certain factors aggravating spasticity (constipation, skin wounds). The quicker and better the treatment is carried out, the greater the chances of recovery.
