Spasticity is an abnormal increase in muscle tone caused by damage to the nerve system that regulates muscle activity. Physical impairment resulting from chronic disease or traumatic injury sometimes results in this type of abnormal muscle activity. Spasticity may be a complication of cerebral palsy (CP), brain or spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis (MS) or stroke.

Treatments are tailored for you and might include:

  • Pharmacology (Botox, Baclofen pumps)
  • Therapies (PT, OT)
  • Nutrition Counseling
  • Seating & Positioning

We work in conjunction with medical specialists from Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago in the treatment of muscle spasticity in children and adolescents. The Pediatric Spasticity Management Clinic includes the services of orthopedists, experts in child neurology, neurosurgeons and physiatrists, along with physical therapy and nursing services. Through an interdisciplinary evaluation process, we consider all treatment options and integrate those that will maximize functional improvement for you.
