Spasticity is a common secondary condition in patients with disabling illnesses such as stroke, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and others. The proper assessment, treatment, and control of spasticity can facilitate the attainment of important rehabilitation goals. This collection of articles includes many of the studies published in the last ten years in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation on the topic of spasticity. Reflecting the clinical relevance of this topic we have given preference during the selection process to therapeutic approaches to spasticity. We will continue to add articles to this collection as they are published.
