44: The Unrelenting Misperceptions of Spasticity and Hypertonicity - What You Need To Know I Love Neuro

    • Education

In today’s episode we discuss a topic from our NeuroSpark Membership that is highly misunderstood - Spasticity! We delve into resources that JJ shared including an article by Dr. Beth Fisher and colleagues (it shares the title of this episode) and we discuss the key points as well as our interpretations of the highlights.  What are your perceptions of how spasticity and hypertonicity affect your patients’ and clients’ movement? Does spasticity cause your patient’s movement dysfunction? Are you using the terms properly?? Listen to the episode to find clarity.  Learn what you need to know and what you need to stop doing.
Anti-racist action/update: we’ve recorded several podcasts now and it is Black History Month so it would be awesome if you would check them out.  Episodes 42 and 43.  Also, we are looking forward to reading a new book entitled “Subtle Acts of Exclusion” by Tiffany Jana and Michael Baran. This will be a great education resource in understanding microaggressions.  Check it out if you want!
