Conditions treated with Serial Casting

Muscle spasticity or tightness can be caused by a variety of conditions and injuries that affect the central nervous system. The central nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord. When the central nervous system is affected by injury or disease, it is unable to send messages to the muscles to make them move. Conditions that affect the central nervous system include stroke, cerebral palsy, spinal cord and brain injury, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, peripheral neuropathy and congenital abnormalities. Over a period of time, the lack of movement in the limb causes shortening of the muscle and stiffness in the joint. This results in tight muscles, reduced range of movement and pain. It can significantly reduce an individual's ability to carry out a normal active life. It is essential that muscle tightness is effectively treated and managed by a specialist neurological physiotherapist. Serial Casting is an effective treatment for muscle tightness and reduced range of movement.
