Hello and sorry for the late reply.

After suffering a stroke, many people experience post-stroke spasticity, muscle tightness that impairs mobility. Botox injections can help with this tightness. Also, Intrathecal baclofen therapy is known to help with the tightness. It involves the surgical implantation of a pump. The medication which is contained in the pump is delivered and it goes directly into the spinal canal.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
