Spasticity is one of the more debilitating symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS). Advocate Christ Medical Center's highly successful spasticity clinic offers the very latest treatments to address the painful spasms and stiffness associated with spasticity.
Our expert team of physiatrists, neurosurgeons, physical therapists, occupational therapists and a rehabilitation advanced practice nurse conduct comprehensive patient assessments to develop customized treatment plans.
Patients at Christ Medical Center have access to the most effective treatments for spasticity, from oral medications and intrathecal baclofen pumps to nerve blocks to orthopedic surgery. Our physical and occupational therapists provide strengthening and training strategies to improve daily activities. Patients may also receive botulinum toxin therapy, a spasticity inhibitor that can provide up to four months of relief from symptoms.
