What is the SMS?

The Spasticity Management Service (SMS) provides spasticity management and neuro-rehabilitation for adults with chronic neurological deficits and spasticity. The SMS is an outpatient service for adults with spasticity from any cause who reside in the South Western Sydney Local Health District.

We are based in the Liverpool Brain Injury Rehabilitation Unit, but also see patients at Braeside Hospital. The team comprises rehabilitation physicians, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. There is access to a neurologist and an orthopaedic surgeon as needed. The service provides access to treatment for spasticity including the use of oral medications, physical therapy, botulinum toxin injections, intra-thecal Baclofen, orthotics and surgery in some cases. The service is patient centred, designing treatment to meet individualised goals and address quality of life issues for patients and their carers.
