Spasticity Interdisciplinary Practice
We hold this specialty clinic in the Outpatient Clinic area to address
needs of patients with increased muscle tone, such as spasticity due to spinal cord injury, stroke or brain injury. The Clinic
meets weekly. Patients see a rehabilitation
nurse, physical therapist, and physical medicine and rehabilitation physician
or neurologist during their appointment. They can expect an evaluation of their individualized
needs regarding spasticity and how it affects their function. In addition,
we will discuss several options to best respond to their needs.
A physician or therapist generally refers patients to this Clinic. However,
in some instances, patients will refer themselves. Please note that we require
a physician's order and insurance authorization for Spasticity Clinic services.
For patients not currently receiving physical therapy services, we require
a preliminary physical therapy screening evaluation in advance of the visit
to the clinic.
