Muscle spasms and stiffness (booklet)
Mild stiffness in the muscles can aid balance and mobility for some, but more severe stiffness or spasms can be tiring, frustrating and, for some, painful.
There are a number of treatments available, and health care professionals can help you ﬁnd the best approach to treat or manage your symptoms. Many people ﬁnd relief by identifying and avoiding things that trigger spasms.
Working with health care professionals to plan stretching exercises, physiotherapy or drug treatments can also be useful when tackling these difﬁcult symptoms.
This booklet is also available to order as an audio CD.
