Spasticity is a condition in which your muscles contract suddenly and unpredictably (spasm). Spasticity usually affects your arms, legs, or back. It can also affect the way you walk.
Spasticity can range from mild muscle stiffness and tightness to severe, uncontrollable muscle spasms. Severe spasticity can be painful and can freeze your muscles in an uncomfortable position.
