Stretching Movements

Stretches throughout the day are key to relieving spasticity. Symptoms like foot drop, muscle spasms, and stiffness are all related to tightness in the muscles. That tightness can occur when you are in one position for a long time, such as sitting or hunching.

By stretching and realigning your muscles, you can help to improve your mobility in the short term and the long term.
