While spasticity may affect any muscle group, there are some common patterns. When spasticity affects one or both arms, flexed elbow, wrist, and clenched fist may result. These can all affect the person's ability to care for themselves normally or cause difficulties with walking. Spasticity of the legs can cause flexed hip, adducted thigh, stiff or flexed knee, equinovarus foot, and hyperextended great toe.
Spasticity may be limited to one area (localized), several nearby areas (regional), or many muscles or muscle groups of the body (generalized). When spasticity is generalized daily care may be challenging and lack of comfort becomes an important consideration for treatment approaches.learn more >
