1,088 Possible Causes for Spastic Gait

  • Stroke

    BACKGROUND: Impaired gait function after stroke contributes strongly to overall patient disability. Recently, sleep disturbance was reported to negatively affect functional recovery after stroke. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify the impact of sleep disturbance on balance and gait function in stroke[…][]

  • Demyelinating Disease

    We describe herein the case of a 57 year old man who, over the last five years, has presented ataxic and spastic gait on the right side, a reduction in fine motor movement[] , gait and balance disturbance).[] On first evaluation she had an atrophic optic disc on the left side, mild spastic gait and increased muscle stretch reflexes.[]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    A 28-year-old woman developed progressive spastic gait and dysarthria.[] Also known as progressive myelopathy, these symptoms may include: Spastic paraparesis : An increasingly spastic gait in which your legs will begin to stiffen, causing a visible[] Clinical findings Waxing/waning or slowly progressive neurologic changes with paresthesias; gait and visual defects; muscular weakness; absent abdominal reflexes; hyperactive[]

  • Cerebral Palsy

    BACKGROUND: Previous researchers reported that popliteal angle did not correlate well with knee angle during gait in individuals with spastic cerebral palsy (CP).[] Abstract To compare medial gastrocnemius muscle-tendon structure, gait propulsive forces, and ankle joint gait kinetics between typically developing children and those with[] Finally, a classification of gait patterns in relation to the degree of involvement for patients with a spastic paresis is described.[]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    Although muscle weakness is present, the main deficits are due to spasticity in dexterity and gait.[] Given that both of these disorders are treatable, dopa-responsive dystonia should be excluded in a child with progressive gait disturbance and lower-extremity spasticity of[] Damage to virtually any part of the nervous system may be reflected in gait. An antalgic gait, or the limp caused by pain is familiar to any practitioner.[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Their neurological examinations revealed spastic gait, pyramidal tract involvement and distal muscle atrophy in the legs.[] […] abnormalities (e.g. wide-based gait, limb ataxia, slapping foot) joint or muscle contractures neurological examination muscle spasticity increased deep tendon reflexes muscle[] .,. increased spasticity, increasing para- or quardriparesis.[]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    […] spinal cord injury following robotic exoskeleton gait training.[] Persons with spastic incomplete SCI tend to walk at a low velocity and have characteristic changes in gait pattern that are due in part to spasticity.[] OBJECTIVE: To explore changes in pain, spasticity, range of motion, activities of daily living, bowel and lower urinary tract function and quality of life of individuals with[]

  • Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia

    For many subjects with an ATL1 mutation, spastic gait begins in early childhood and does not significantly worsen, even over many years; such cases resemble spastic diplegic[] Characteristic clinical features comprise progressive spastic gait, cognitive impairment, and ataxia.[] Hereditary spastic paraplegias (HSPs) are genetically driven disorders with the hallmark of progressive spastic gait disturbance.[]
