Canada’s leading spasticity clinician, including physiatry, pediatricians, neurologists and plastic, orthopedic,

We are inviting Canada’s leading spasticity clinician, including physiatry, pediatricians, neurologists and plastic, orthopedic, orthopedic and neurosurgeons to join spasticity experts to participate in a groundbreaking approach to spasticity. The is the second year for this interdisciplinary congress on improving spasticity outcomes with novel approaches with an international panel of experts. We encourage all spasticity and peripheral nerve experts to collaborate and learn. We are inspired to redefine your definition of contracture and maximal and plateaued outcomes. Using a simple technique of performing nerve blocks with US guidance, we have been able to demonstrate the potential length of spastic muscles. Blocking the musculocutaneous to brachialis and biceps, radial to brachioradialis, tibial to the branches of the triceps surae, pectoral nerves, ulnar to FCU, and fascicular branches of the median nerve, the potential for a greater active or passive range of motion can be demonstrated.

Once further range and function are determined then both traditional approaches with botulinum toxin and novel interventions are proposed.

These include:

  • Neurotomy with cryoablation for a long-term, but a reversible technique that causes
  • Wallerian Degeneration but the preservation of the epineurium.
  • Neurotomy and microsurgical tendon lengthening with laser.
  • World experts will show bedside needle tenotomy contacture and long term care patients.
  • Surgical neurectomy for the upper and lower extremity.
  • Key peripheral nerves that can selectively be targeted to improve function and quality of life.
  • Importance of adjunctive serial casting
