Spasticity, in the context of children who have cerebral palsy, takes the form of muscle tightness that can inhibit normal movement. In this video, Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare physicians discuss the variety of spasticity treatment options—from botulinum toxin and phenol injections to intrathecal baclofen pumps to selective dorsal rhizotomy surgery—available to children at Gillette, depending on their age and level of involvement. Patient family testimonials emphasize the benefit of spasticity management interventions on long-term health and quality of life.
