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

Our daughter’s renal failure means that she is delayed with standing and walking at 2 and half years of age. We first started seeing Jules a few months back for an intense block of physiotherapy to build the strength and skills needed for her to eventually stand and walk.  It was really important that the physiotherapist specialised in paediatrics and could work alongside the NHS physiotherapists we also see. Jules immediately put us at ease with her friendly and professional approach and has built a good, trusting relationship with our daughter.  She uses play as a way to get our daughter to engage with the therapy.  Our daughter has really enjoyed all her physio sessions to date and we have seen a notable improvement in her movement.  She has begun to pull herself up and can climb up small steps as well as shuffle down stairs in a controlled manner!
