Title:
The nurse's role in assessing and measuring spasticity.
Authors:
Jarrett, Louise
Abstract:
Spasticity is a common feature of neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, stroke, brain and spinal injuries. The management of spasticity remains a challenge for not only the person with spasticity but also their family, carers and healthcare professionals. Accurate assessment and measurement is essential to ensure individuals receive the most appropriate interventions.
