Severe spasticity, a condition in which certain muscles are continuously contracted, can make day-to-day life difficult and exhausting. At Encompass Health, we utilize the latest technologies and treatments, such as intrathecal baclofen therapy, to reduce pain and relieve muscle spasms.
The degree of spasticity can vary for each patient. That’s why we begin our approach with a treatment plan specifically designed for each individual. We believe high-quality care should be comprehensive, so we work with patients and their loved ones to educate them on how they can best cope with spasticity.
Spasticity can occur after many different conditions or illnesses – stroke, spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis, to name a few. At Encompass Health, we understand that successful spasticity rehabilitation should be as unique as each of our patients. Each of our patients receives an individual assessment and a personalized plan outlining the steps they need for comprehensive rehabilitation.
Encompass Health’s team approach helps patients find relief from muscle stiffness and tightness by providing the nation’s leading spasticity therapy techniques. Our expert nurses, therapists, case managers, physicians and hospital staff are all passionate about providing safe, quality care to our patients.
By participating in the spasticity rehabilitation program at Encompass Health, patients can expect custom orthotics and splinting, reduction of muscle hyperactivity, better range of motion, improved bladder control, increased muscle strength and decreased pain.
