Help A Loved one with spasticity by creating a safe home environment, tips for living with spasticity, understanding causes, symptoms, effects, emotional consequences of spasticity, realistic goals, Exercises, Treatment Options plus long term outlook what to expect with this short read in one night. However, the guide expands to the web , books and videos with the helpful resource section.Resources for Spasticity Support Information and News will direct you to support groups, National Associations, Treatment Options , spasticity videos for rehabilitation and articles reports from leading authorities. Covered in this short read are the most commonly used methods of treatment when it comes to treatment for spasticity. Emphasized is the importance of making sure you understand the need to set realistic goals. Treatment options will not cause the spasticity to vanish permanently, and it may take a lifetime of dedicated treatment to regain only a small amount of movement. Still, working toward improving your spasticity or working with a loved one who is suffering can provide some improvement to their quality of life.Many times, those who have family or friends who suffer from spasticity only see the outer effects. This is sometimes true of the sufferers as well. They feel the pain, they see the pain, but they do not always consider the emotional consequences, which can often be just as devastating – and sometimes more so – than the physical consequences. It is also important to consider the point of view of the family and friends who are looking at their loved one who is now suffering from spasticity. Many people simply do not know how to react in these instances. They do not know how to treat the sufferer, and this can cause them to withdraw as well. It is also vital to think about spasticity from the perspective of the caregivers who are taking care of their loved ones at home or in a facility. Caring for a loved one with this condition can be extremely draining both physically and emotionally. The long-term outlook for those who are suffering from spasticity will naturally depend upon the severity of the spasticity, as well as the particular cause. Some patients are able to recover fully or almost fully after they’ve been in an accident that causes temporary symptoms of spasticity. Others have disorders that will cause them to live with it the rest of their life. There are a number of treatment options available, as we’ve already covered. Doctors and other healthcare professionals are always looking for new ways to help their patients and to provide them with better care. With more research and medical advances, there is hope that there will be better methods of helping those who are suffering from the condition. From the author – “I want to be clear in the introduction that I am not a health professional but rather an engineer that has had partial paralysis on one side with the accompanying dropfoot effect and spasticity in varying degrees. This is written with a deep care for my brothers and sisters affected as I have been, plus their families or caretakers.” – Stay Safe
