Spasms and muscle stiffness in MS

Muscle stiffness and spasm (2)     Hi, can’t beleive it’s November already! I’ve been busy making presentations that I’m now going to try to post up here. This one is about muscle spasm and stiffness. It’s a powerpoint, so we’ll see if it works!

Yay! Ok, so if you click on the link, you can download the powerpoint.

On November 3rd I will be talking about muscle stiffness and spasm at the MS Society symptom management day in Flitwick, Beds, and I’m putting the full set of slides on my blog.Of course, It’s from an integrated perspective, so includes: what’s going on inside in muscle spasm & stiffness, ( an imbalance between the stimulating ‘excitatory’ and the calming ‘inhibitory’ neurotransmitters), the medical protocol, things that some people with MS report to be useful, and recommendations from trailblazers like Terry Wahls. I’m sure there’s loads of things I don’t know yet which aren’t covered, but so far it includes:
Physiotherapy
Active movement exercise
Stretching programmes
Avoiding trigger factors
Addressing MS as whole
muscle relaxant medication
Cannabis/cannabinoids
Key nutrients/supplements
LDN
meditation
botox/injectables
splinting
intrathecal baclofen
surgery
possibly APS therapy
