Spasticity is caused by an upper motor neuron lesion leading to intermittent or sustained involuntary activation of muscles, and is a symptom of various disorders, including multiple sclerosis (MS), stroke, traumatic brain or spinal cord injury and cerebral palsy. The aim of this study is to understand the burden of spasticity treatment from patient and caregivers perspectives, in terms of impact on employment status, activities of daily living and quality of life.
