Why did I develop spasticity?
Spasticity happens when there is damage to the area of your brain that controls your muscles. If you have spasticity you will have increased muscle tone. Muscle tone is the resistance or tension in your muscles, and it is what enables us to hold our bodies in a particular position. An increased muscle tone can make it difficult to move your limbs.
