The Spasticity Alliance

The National Alliance for Caregiving is proud to partner with the Spasticity Alliance to educate stroke survivors and caregivers about mobility challenges such as spasticity, paralysis and foot drop. Spasticity is a condition where certain muscles are continuously contracted, creating muscle stiffness and tightness. Those who suffer from spasticity often face difficulty moving, speaking, and have gait issues.

Does your care recipient suffer from spasticity? If so, we want to hear from you.

  • Seeking caregivers of stroke victims who suffer from spasticity
  • Your caregiver story will appear on the Spasticity Alliance’s website
  • The goal is to build a caregiver support network for those caring for someone with spasticity
