Specialist spasticity management

At Bristol neurophysio, we have extensive experience in the management and treatment of spasticity. This may include advice on stretches, and positioning to help alleviate the spasms.

If medical treatment is required Bristol neurophysio is able to call upon the services of a Rehabilitation Consultant specialising in spasticity management.  He is able to advise on drug management specific to spasticity and is also able to administer treatments such as Botulinum Toxin.

Botulinum Toxin (also known as Botox or Dysport) is being used more commonly in the treatment of spasticity. Our expertise in this area allows us to advise on whether botox would be a suitable treatment option.

Some kind words

I would just like to let everyone know how happy I am since starting treatment at Bristol Neurophysio.  I have noticed a great beneficial change to my condition, ataxia.  It's been such a relief for me to find someone who understands my condition and is able to set up a programme suitable for my abilities.  Kirsty is always upbeat and cheerful and is always a great help.  I come away from my sessions feeling so much better and able to get on with my life!
