Disease/Condition Glossary

Muscle spasticity is a condition in which muscles become stiff, contract, or cause involuntary spasm making it difficult to move, walk or talk, which can be painful and uncomfortable sometimes. When the nerve impulses that control the muscle movements are damaged or interrupted, it could lead to muscle spasticity. Symptoms include muscle tightness, joint stiffness, unusual posture, difficulty in moving, pain in affected muscles and joints. Fatigue (weakness), stress, extreme heat or cold, infection, and tight clothing can trigger muscle spasms. Muscle relaxants and exercise can treat muscle spasticity.
