SEVERITY AND DISTRIBUTION OF SPASTICITY DOES NOT LIMIT MOBILITY OR INFLUENCE COMPENSATORY STRATEGIES FOLLOWING TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

Presenter: Banky M

This Modules addresses:

Questions: Does the severity of lower limb spasticity effect mobility

outcomes following traumatic brain injury? Does the distribution of

spasticity influence proximal compensation strategies following traumatic

brain injury?

Conclusion: The ability to generate ankle power has a large impact on

mobility outcomes following traumatic brain injury. Although spasticity

was prevalent, the severity did not impact mobility outcomes. Proximal

compensation strategies were not influenced by the presence or

distribution of lower limb spasticity following traumatic brain injury.

Key Practice Points:

• The distribution and severity of lower limb spasticity did not impact

mobility outcomes or proximal compensation strategies following

traumatic brain injury.

• The ability to generate ankle and hip power has greater association with

mobility outcomes than the distribution and severity of spasticity.

• Clinical measures of lower limb spasticity may not be valid.
