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.   A practical guide for clinicians involved in the management of spasticity, this book covers all aspects of upper motor neurone syndrome from basic neurophysiology 5/5(1). Spasticity and the other features, positive and negative, of the upper motor neurone (UMN) syndrome arise from disruption of certain descending pathways involved in motor control. Hyperexcitability of spinal reflexes forms the basis of most of the positive clinical signs of the UMN syndrome, which have in common excessive muscle by: Spasticity is one of the impairments affecting function following brain damage. If spasticity is only one of several impairments following brain damage, physiotherapists need to clarify how spasticity affects the ability to move. Historically, spasticity was seen as the major determinant of activity by:

The second edition of this book brings together an excellent transdiciplinary group of experienced clinicians who clearly and thoroughly outline the physiological basis, clinical consequences, and problems related to the upper motor neuron syndrome (UMNS), and describe many of the current treatment strategies for adult and paediatric by: Upper motor neurone syndrome and spasticity The second edition of this book brings together an excellent transdiciplinary group of experienced clinicians who clearly and thoroughly outline the physiological basis, clinical consequences, and problems related to the upper motor neuron syndrome (UMNS), and describe many of the current. Spasticity causes seating challenges for a variety of people with disabilities: from children with cerebral palsy, young adults with head injuries, middle aged people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and older persons who have suffered cerebrovascular accidents (CVAs) and use wheelchairs.

  One weak area in the book is the coverage of the measurement of spasticity. There is one chapter devoted to the topic, by one of the editors, Upper motor neurone syndrome and : Derick Wade. A number of factors contribute to the motor functional disability associated with long-standing upper motor neurone lesions.
