SCI Forum Schedule

 

Tuesday, January 13 , 2015 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

 

Spasticity—Part 2: Real Life Stories

Spasticity is an almost universal complication of spinal cord injury, but the way it manifests itself varies enormously from person to person. Part one of our forum series exploring spasticity in SCI looked at spasticity management from the clinical perspective (physician, PT, and OT). In this second part, four individuals with SCI will share their unique experiences with spasticity since their injuries, what treatments they have tried over the years, and how they are managing their spasticity now. They will discuss the ways spasticity has interfered with function and independence as well as some of the ways spasticity and increased muscle tone have been useful. Please join us for an engaging panel discussion and bring your own questions and experiences to share.

5:30 PM - 6:30 PM Meet & Greet! Meet in the hospital cafeteria to socialize, network and eat before heading to the forum. No RSVP—just show up!
