The Ambulant Spasticity Clinic at CRC offers a National consultancy service for children presenting with focal spasticity. This clinic explores how focal spasticity is affecting a child’s lower limb function and participation, through comprehensive assessment which may also include gait analysis. The clinic is a Paediatrician-led multidisciplinary consultation. Treatment approaches may include exercise, orthoses, casting, oral medication and injection medication (Botulinum Toxin). Onward referral for a surgical opinion including SDR assessment may be considered. Therapy advice/support to parents, families and health professionals on CDNTs is also given. Most children who attend have a primary physical disability, primarily cerebral palsy (GMFCS level I - III)
