In brief: PT/Baclofen or botox

To help with spasticity, things like Baclofen pumps and Botox injections into the muscle have shown to reduce the stiffness and increase function.
Most of the time, a physiatrist (physical medicine and rehab physician) does these procedures. Other interventions include pt, occupational therapy, speech and behavior therapy.
