Rehabilitation Medicine as a whole treat several diseases, injuries, and symptoms. The umbrella, the focus is broken down to include:
Spasticity is Treatable with Spasticity Management and Injections
Spasticity is a painful condition that affects certain groups of muscles causing stiffness, severe pain, or extreme discomfort, often interfering with walking, speaking, or completing basic tasks.
When communication between the brain and muscles is not successful, it causes muscle spasms or contractions.
Spasms often feel like a Charley horse — a sudden and involuntary contraction of one or more of the muscles. With continuous muscle problems, you will likely begin to experience problems with the bones and joints as well. You may also have trouble with coordination and balance. The symptoms will ultimately decrease your quality of life.
Spasticity management and spasticity injections can help decrease feelings of pain as they help manage the complications associated with your condition. At Maranatha Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, we provide effective treatment to help you understand your body’s various needs. Our treatments are designed to help improve your quality of life.
What is Spasticity Management?
Spasticity management is a program designed to treat a range of neurological conditions with a focus on reducing pain and increasing mobility. Treatments vary by patient and condition but ultimately target the muscles and nerves. Spasticity management treatments may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, and preventative care.
What are Spasticity Injections?
Spasticity injections may be used to control muscle spasms. Medications are injected directly into the spastic muscle and are used in a combination with orthotic management. Botulinum toxin and phenol are common muscle medications that can prevent muscles from contracting.
