Spasticity Research

Spasticity is stiff or rigid muscles with unusual tightness or increased muscle tone.  It is usually caused by damage to the part of the brain that controls your movements. This condition can interfere with walking, movement, or speech.

Our mission is to provide the best possible treatment and care for individuals and their families that are suffering from Spasticity.  We also strive to further knowledge in Spasticity and its treatment through basic and clinical research.
