Abstract

Spasticity is a disorder of the motor system that occurs after injury to the central nervous system, which may increase the disability of an individual with spinal cord injury (SCI). Treatment options detailed in this review include rehabilitation techniques and modalities, pharmacological options, injection techniques, intrathecal baclofen, and surgery. This review will hopefully help health professionals to be aware of the treatment alternatives available for patients with SCI related spasticity.
