Spasticity (मांसपेशियों की जकड़न) is a condition in which muscles are continuously contracted. This contraction causes stiffness or tightness of the muscles and can interfere with normal movement, speech, gait, and also colloquially referred to as the pull of muscles. Spastic cerebral palsy is the most common form of cerebral palsy, which is a group of permanent movement problems that do not get worse over time. Siddha Spirituality of Swami Hardas Life System opines that the condition of spasticity can be improved with its unique methods.
Spasticity Definition (मांसपेशियों की जकड़न की परिभाषा)
A state of increased tone of a muscle and an increase in the deep tendon reflexes. For example, with spasticity of the legs i.e. spastic paraplegia, there is an increase in the tone of the leg muscles so they feel tight and rigid and the knee jerk reflex is exaggerated.
Spasticity Symptoms (मांसपेशियों की जकड़न के लक्षण)
Spasticity may be as mild as the feeling of tightness in muscles or may be severe enough to produce painful, uncontrollable spasms of the extremities; most commonly the legs and arms. Spasticity may also create feelings of pain or tightness in and around joints and can cause lower back pain.
Adverse effects of spasticity include:
- Muscle stiffness, causing movements to be less precise and making certain tasks difficult to perform
- Muscle spasms, causing uncontrollable and often painful muscle contractions
- Involuntary crossing of the legs
- Muscle and joint deformities
- Muscle fatigue
- Inhibition of longitudinal muscle growth
- Inhibition of protein synthesis in muscle cells
Additional complications include:
- Urinary tract infections
- Chronic constipation
- Fever or other systemic illnesses
- Pressure sores
Spasticity Causes (मांसपेशियों की जकड़न के कारण)
The damage to the brain causes a change in the balance of signals between the central nervous system and the muscles, leading to increased excitability in muscles. This is common in people who have cerebral palsy, brain injuries or a spinal cord injury, but it can happen to anybody e.g. having a stroke.
Spasticity and clonus (मांसपेशियों की जकड़न और क्लोनस)
Clonus i.e. involuntary, rhythmic, muscular contractions and relaxations tend to co-exist with spasticity in many cases of stroke and spinal cord injury likely due to their common physiological origins. Some consider clonus as simply an extended outcome of spasticity. Although closely linked, clonus is not seen in all patients with spasticity. Clonus is commonly seen in the ankle but may exist in other distal structures as well, such as the knee or spine.
Classification of Spastic cerebral palsy (मानसिक मस्तिष्क पक्षाघात का वर्गीकरण)
Cerebral Palsy is often classified by severity level as Mild, Moderate, Severe. These are broad generalizations that lack a specific set of criteria. Even when doctors agree on the level of severity, the classification provides little specific information, especially when compared to other means of classification. Still, this method is common and offers a simple method of communicating the scope of impairment, which can be useful when accuracy is not necessary.
Mild Cerebral Palsy means a child can move without assistance.
Moderate Cerebral Palsy means a child will need braces, medications, and adaptive technology to accomplish daily activities.
Severe Cerebral Palsy means a child will require a wheelchair and will have significant challenges in accomplishing daily activities and will need important support.
Spastic Cerebral palsy (मानसिक मस्तिष्क पक्षाघात)
Spastic cerebral palsy is a developmental disorder caused by damage to the brain before birth, during pregnancy, delivery, or within the first few years of life. This condition prevents the normal development of a motor function.
This type of cerebral palsy often makes simple tasks more challenging, such as walking or picking up small objects. Some children with spastic CP also develop co-occurring conditions as a result of their brain injury. These coexisting conditions can range from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to epilepsy.
Types of Spastic Cerebral palsy (मानसिक मस्तिष्क पक्षाघात के प्रकार)
The various types of spastic cerebral palsy are classified based on the location of movement issues. For example, children with spastic CP may have muscle stiffness in one arm, both legs or one full side of their body:
Spastic diplegia (स्पास्टिक डेजिया)
Muscle stiffness occurs primarily in the legs. This type of CP may also slightly affect mobility in the child’s arms.
Spastic hemiplegia (स्पास्टिक अर्धांगघात)
One side of the body is affected by movement and the arm typically being stiffer than the leg.
Spastic quadriplegia (स्पास्टिक क्वाड्रीप्लेजिया)
Children with quadriplegia often have co-occurring disorders, such as epilepsy.
Spasticity Diagnosis (मांसपेशियों की जकड़न का निदान)
Assessment of a movement disorder featuring spasticity may involve several health professionals depending on the affected individual’s situation, and the severity of their condition. This may include:
- Physical therapists for physical therapy
- Speech therapists for speech therapy
- Physicians including neurologists and rehabilitation physicians
- Orthotists for ortho problems
- Occupational therapists for occupational therapy
A thorough assessment will include analysis of posture, active movement, muscle strength, movement control and coordination, and endurance, as well as spasticity.
Spasticity Treatment (मांसपेशियों की जकड़न के उपचार)
Treatment should be based on an assessment by relevant health professionals. For spastic muscles with mild-to-moderate impairment, exercise should be the mainstay of management and is likely needed to be prescribed by:
- An occupational therapist
- Physical therapist
- Accredited exercise physiologist (AEP)
- Health professional skilled in neurological rehabilitation
This form of therapy can be useful for rehabilitation if therapists are at a premium and have been found effective at reducing spasticity in patients suffering from a stroke.
For muscles that lack any volitional control, such as after complete spinal cord injury, exercise may be assisted and may require equipment, such as using a standing frame to sustain a standing position.
Phenol injections can be used, or botulinum toxin injections into the muscle belly, to attempt to dampen the signals between nerve and muscle. The effectiveness of medications varies between individuals and varies based on the location of the upper motor neuron lesion.
A 2009 study looked at the effect of hydrotherapy to decrease spasticity on post-stroke, hemiparetic patients with limited mobility and concluded that there was a significantly larger increase in FIM scores compared to the control group that did not receive hydrotherapy.
Spasticity Prognosis (मांसपेशियों की जकड़न रोग का निदान)
The prognosis for those with spastic muscles depends on multiple factors, including the severity of the spasticity and the associated movement disorder, access to specialized and intensive management, and the ability of the affected individual to maintain the management plan e.g. an exercise program.
Most people with a significant UMN lesion will have an ongoing impairment, but most of these will be able to make progress. The most important factor to indicate the ability to progress is seeing improvement, but improvement in many spastic movement disorders may not be seen until the affected individual receives help from a specialized team or health professional.
Spasticity Research (मांसपेशियों की जकड़न का संशोधन)
Doublecortin positive cells, Similar to stem cells, are extremely adaptable and, when extracted from a brain, cultured and then re-injected in a lesioned area of the same brain, they can help repair and rebuild it. The treatment using them would take some time to be available for general public use, as it has to clear regulations and trials.
