Spasticity in Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Spasticity is a tightness or stiffness of the muscles that help people to stand and balance in an upright position. These muscles may be in the legs, groin, and buttocks. Some people may have spasticity in their backs.1
Spasticity in MS happens when there is damage to the myelin—the protective coating covering the nerves of the brain and spinal cord. These nerves control movement. Mild spasticity may not be painful. But spasticity can become painful when it is more severe. Spasticity can also make it hard to perform daily activities because of discomfort or difficulty moving.1
Spasticity in Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)
Spasticity in SCI happens when the flow of signals between the brain and spinal cord is broken. In a normal response, information travels from the spinal cord to the brain. The brain receives the signal and sends commands back through the spinal cord to tell the body what to do. A reaction like jerking away from something hot is a reflex, and it happens automatically. In SCI, the signal can’t reach the brain. It goes back to the spinal cord and the reflex is a muscle spasm.2
Symptoms are similar to the symptoms for MS.
They can include2:
- Sudden bending or straightening of limbs or jerking of muscles
- Muscle spasms
- Stiffness or tight muscles at rest or during activity that makes it hard to relax or to control movements
