Overview

Spastic hand is the name given to the different forms of hand paralysis of central origin, that is to say to the effects of central nerve system (brain) injuries on the hand.

These types of paralysis result from cerebral vascular accidents (hemiplegia), tumours or direct brain injuries.

Treatment should be pluridisciplinary.In the first stages of the central nervous system (brain) lesion, the hand’s paralysis is not  a priority and treatment is handled first by our neurologist and/or neurosurgeon colleagues and then by rehabilitation specialists.Finally, at least a year into the evolution, once paralysis is stabilized, specific hand paralysis treatment involving a consultation with a hand surgeon can be arranged
