Abstract/Summary Spasticity is a disabling problem for many adults and children with a variety of neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, cerebral palsy and traumatic brain injury. A practical guide for clinicians involved in the management of spasticity, this book covers all aspects of upper motor neurone syndrome from basic neurophysiology and measurement techniques to practical therapy and the use of orthoses. Surgical techniques are also covered, as well as the particular problems of management of spasticity in childhood. In the second edition of this key text, all chapters have been thoroughly updated.
