About 1/3 of patients may develop increased spasticity in 12 months after their first stroke, which may interfere with their functional recovery. Hence, it is essential to have a timely and coordinated spasticity management plan from a specialist team to optimize the patient’s recovery. This course provides an evidence-based update of the management of spasticity and contractures in patients with neurological conditions. Participants will gain a better understanding in the use of a multi-modal approach to target different impairments and activity limitations resulting from spasticity and contractures. Participants will learn how to grade severity of spasticity and identify muscle contracture using clinical assessment tools and develop treatment plans to maintain joint range and achieve patient-centered goals after botulinum toxin injection and/or serial casting.
