Spasticity is a common thing for people with cerebral palsy, everyone with cerebral palsy is impacted differently, even if the diagnosis is the same. It is described as tight muscles which would make sense, because the vast majority of us are stuck living with tight muscles.
I think it’s a problem for us who live with cp because there is no known solution just management tools. Basically, there’s not much a person with cerebral palsy can do but live with it. The only solution I can think of is to talk to your doctor and seek some form of medication. For me I find this a source of frustration in my life.
I use my spasticity to help me stand, I didn’t realize this consciously until I got sick and was building up my strength, my legs felt like spaghetti for literally weeks and I was convinced they had me on some medication that was some form of muscle relaxant that was causing my muscles to be so weak. It wasn’t I was just that weak and my spasticity did come back and I am getting back to where I was physically I got sick.
I honestly wish I had an answer for everyone, myself included. But I want to know in the comments below how do you deal with tight muscles in your own life. Do you take any meds for it? I don’t and never have. If you have solutions that you think will help others please share and lets help others in the comments below.
