Spasticity refers to the stiffness and involuntary muscle spasms caused by traumatic brain injury, stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions. The intensity varies from person to person—some feel a mild sensation of tightness, while others experience stiffness and spasms that interfere with their daily activities.

The Movement Disorders Program at Cedars-Sinai offers evaluation and treatment services for spasticity in adults and children. We have expertise in a range of treatments including:

  • Physical therapy or occupational therapy
  • Botulinum toxin (Botox) injections
  • Inthrathecal baclofen pumps
