Getting a Grip on Upper Extremity Spasticity Assessment and Management
Stephen Page, PhD, MS, OTR/L, FAHA, FACRM, FAOTA
Spasticity is frequently exhibited after stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and a number of other upper motor neuron disorders. Yet, despite its high prevalence and widely appreciated impact on valued activities, spasticity remains one of the most difficult to treat and poorly-understood neurological impairments. In this seminar, you will learn evidence-based spasticity assessment and treatment strategies, as well as why spasticity occurs, how it differs from other impairments, and when in the recovery trajectory spasticity typically occurs.
