Muscle stiffness and spasms are common these days due to overuse and muscle fatigue, dehydration, abnormal postures. Muscle spasms or stiffness affect at least 20 per cent of people at some time. Drugs and therapies (including physiotherapy and occupational therapy) can help you manage these symptoms. Laser therapy is most effective and fast relief can be achieved.
Spasticity means there is an increase in 'muscle tone' (resistance or tension in the muscle). In other words, when the muscle is moved, there is more resistance to this movement than there normally would be. Muscles feel more rigid.
Increased tone (resistance in the muscle) can mean muscles are slow to relax, and this can cause stiffness. Depending on the muscles affected, this stiffness can make it difficult to perform delicate movements with the hands and fingers, or make larger movements difficult, which can affect walking.
When affected muscles stretch, spasticity may also cause them to jerk in an uncontrolled way – a spasm. Some people with MS experience other spasms - sudden involuntary movements that can make the arms or legs move in different ways. These can occur even without the muscle being stretched.
