Abstract

Spasticity is a common phenomenon which often develops after an upper motor neuro lesion, such as stroke, multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injury. The clinical picture after an UMN lesion depends primarily upon its location and extent, and the time since it occurred, rather than on the pathogenesis of the lesion. Spasticity is part of the positive phenomena, characterized by an exaggerated motor response, elicited for instance during physical examination. The interval between an acute lesion and the appearance of spasticity varies from days to months.
