Types of Pain and Problems

Spasticity

Spasticity is an alteration in muscle tone that is involuntary. There is a gradual increase in tone that causes a hyper-excitability of the stretch reflexes in the muscles of the body. Many think that this could be a muscle issue, but it usually stems from issues with the body’s central nervous system. The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. This can cause a patient to have a lack of control over certain muscles that can be seen in many conditions and injuries that affect the brain and/or spinal cord. For example: Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Restless Leg Syndrome, etc.
