Intrathecal Baclofen Therapy for Spasticity

Updated on May 28, 2024

Learn about intrathecal baclofen therapy, and how it fits into the spectrum of spasticity management options for individuals with spinal cord injury. This SCI Forum from the Northwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury System provided in-depth information about when to consider an implanted, programmable baclofen pump for spasticity management; the process of being evaluated for this treatment; the potential advantages, limitations, and drawbacks to the pump; and requirements to maintain a baclofen pump. While the specific medical system information is from the United States, the rest of the information is useful for Canadians.
