Spasticity in Children

Spasticity in Children


Spasticity or Increase muscle tone is very commonly encountered in Pediatric
Neurology practice. In simple terms Spacticity means increased muscle tone which
causes resistance to any external movement. Spasticity is also commonly mentioned as
a "dynamic increase in muscle tone"; by the experienced physiotherapists. The most
common cause of spasticity in children is Cerebral palsy, usually caused by antenatal
or perinatal insult to the developing brain.

If spasticity is caused by Cerebral palsy, the underlying brain problem which is
static(does not change with time), however the spasticity may get worse with time. It is
therefore important to "remain ahead in the game" by managing spasticity at the
earliest. The most common treatment of spasticity is Physiotherapy. An experienced
pediatric physiotherapist will assess your child and formulate a therapy program
depending on the severity of the spasticity.

The Pediatric Neurologist mat choose to start the child on a muscle relaxant, usually
Baclofen, which is given orally and in severe cases Baclofen can also be given via an
implantable device known as  "Baclofen Pump".
The doctor may also decide to give Botulinum toxin (Botox) injections to the spastic
muscles as a targeted therapy. This is usually given after 2 years of age.

  1. I was born epileptic, but I am now free and cured with Dr Itua Herbal Made Medicine. I was seventeen and sitting at my computer when I fell out of my chair. Only thing I remember is waking up with the worse headache I had ever had in my life. I had never taken medication and I hated swallowing pills but I had to start. I switched between all kinds of medication because I didn't take them like I was supposed to. One day I had just finished running errands and was at my sisters house when I fell to the floor again. I woke up with a bad headache and my 2 year old Niece leaning over my leg asking me if I was OK. By then I had just started college and was one the verge of losing my license. My school is an hour away from where I live so I really got set back because I wasn't allowed to drive until I got my seizures under control.
