Spasticity Management Clinic
Patients seen in our clinic have a wide range of neurological conditions leading to increased muscle tone and spasticity, which impede function and lessens quality of life.
Our Spasticity Management team consists of several disciplines including: Physiatrists, Neurologists, Nurses, OT, PT and a Kinesiologist. The team and program are recognized as the “Gold Standard” in spasticity management for people with Multiple Sclerosis and other chronic neurological disabilities.
Through our collaborative approach, inputs from all aspects of medicine and rehabilitation are considered and the most beneficial treatments are recommended.
Neuromuscular treatment options for abnormal tone and spasticity, such as Botulinum Neurotoxins (Botox™ or Xeomin™), nerve blocks, oral medication therapies are offered.
A physician’s referral is required; patients are accepted on a case-by-case basis at any point in the continuum of care.
Portions of our Spasticity Management services are subsidized through grants. In addition, some equipment costs may be covered by provincial funding programs. The fees we charge to our patients are subject to change, depending on the grants and financial assistance available to us. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for the latest information!
Customized treatments for abnormal tone and spasticity
Collaborative approach to patient treatment
Multiple treatment options to accommodate client comfort levels
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ATC has had to limit the number of referrals we can see. Consequently, we can only accommodate our internally referred patients and will not be accepting any community referrals for our Seating and AAC clinics at this time.
We will continue to see our existing ALS, stroke, MS and PD patients and internal referrals for these diagnoses in Seating and AAC clinic.
Thank you for your understanding.
