FREE SPASTICITY SEMINAR: Millions of Americans suffer from a condition called spasticity, which causes tight, stiff muscles or spasms that may make movement and balance difficult.
Spasticity is caused by damage to the central nervous system and commonly occurs after a stroke, brain or spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy or multiple sclerosis. The condition may be mild and affect a single limb or joint, or it can be more severe, making it almost impossible to move.
Dr. Andrea Toomer, Dr. Lauren Sharett and physical therapists Carrie Black and Kay Nelson will discuss the latest treatment options for spasticity during a free seminar at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 31, in Fonseca Auditorium at West Jefferson Medical Center, 1101 Medical Center Blvd., Marrero.
