Spasticity is a condition where muscles become stiff and tighten up, affecting movement, and speech. It may also come with discomfort or pain. It is typically caused by damage to the brain or spinal cord and can be associated with multiple neurologic conditions.
In this webinar, we will hear from Ann Tilton, CNF Past-President and Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics and Section Chair of Child Neurology at Louisiana State Health Science Center. She will cover spasticity basics, including causes and conditions typically associated with spasticity and available treatment options.
Join us to also hear the experience of Charles Steward, parent of two young children, both of whom have severe cerebral palsy and one of whom has epilepsy. Charles also has a crucial added perspective: he is a genome scientist, and the Patient Advocacy and Engagement Lead at Congenica, a software company that enables clinicians and researchers to deliver life-changing answers, rapidly, through the analysis, interpretation and reporting of genomic data.
