Abstract

Spasticity is a very troublesome symptom, which causes further deterioration in physical disability and in many cases precludes effective treatment. The aim of this paper is to recall different methods for treating spasticity, with particular consideration of the modern method of employing a baclofen pump with a patient who had suffered trauma to the cervical spinal cord.
