Spasticity In Hand


Spasticity is a motor disorder characterized by a velocity-dependent increase in tonic stretch reflexes (muscle tone) with exaggerated tendon jerks, resulting from hyper excitability of the stretch reflex.


  • Postoperative hematoma
  • Infection
  • Sensory disturbances, such as paraesthesia and dysesthesias, followed by transient de-afferentation pain (2 months), can be seen if the section accidentally includes sensory fascicles.
  • Hypaesthesia
  • Recurrence of spasticity when the mean amount of sectioning is insufficient.
