    Spasticity Survey Project

    Do you have a spinal cord injury and spasticity, muscle stiffness, or tone? Help us by completing a 15-20 minute online research survey about how spasticity affects your life. Your participation will help us understand how spasticity is experienced by individuals with SCI, which characteristics of spasticity have the greatest impact on activities of daily living and the perceived value of current treatment strategies. We hope that our study will guide future research to develop better ways to manage spasticity-related problems.
