what is spastic paralysis
What is Spastic Paralysis?
  • A chronic, pathological condition in which the muscles are affected by persistent spasms and exaggerated tendon reflexes because of damage to motor nerves of the central nervous system
  • Spastic Paralysis is a symptom of many common diseases and they work together to harm the central nervous system
  • Is also present in MS. (Multiple Sclerosis)

Spastic Paralysis

  • Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
  • Stroke
  • Brain tumors
  • Fragile X Syndrome
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Spina Bifida
  • Neonatal Care and Development Disabilities of Prematurely Born Babies
fetal alcohol syndrome
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
  • Women who drink alcohol during pregnancy can give birth to babies with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.
  • These disorders range from mild to severe.
  • They can be behavioral, physical, related to learning, or all of the above.
stroke rehabilitation
Stroke Rehabilitation
  • Rehabilitation helps stroke survivors relearn skills that are lost when part of the brain is damaged.
  • For example, these skills can include coordinating leg movements in order to walk or carrying out the steps involved in any complex activity.
  • Rehabilitation also teaches survivors new ways of performing tasks to circumvent or compensate for any residual disabilities
brain tumors
Brain Tumors
  • Abnormal growth of cells within the brain or the central spinal canal.
fragile x syndrome
Fragile X Syndrome
  • Fragile X syndrome is an inherited genetic disease that causes intellectual and developmental disabilities. Inherited means that the disease is passed down from parents to children through their genes.
  • Fragile X syndrome is the most common hereditary source of mental disability in boys.
  • People with fragile X syndrome usually experience a range of developmental and learning problems. The disease is a life-long condition. Only some people with fragile X syndrome are able to live independently.
  • Twice as common in males as females.
alzheimer s
  • The most common cause of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease (AD). AD is a progressive and irreversiblebrain disorder.
  • The actual cause of AD is unknown.
  • AD slowly damages, and then destroys, a person’s memory, judgment, reasoning skills, personality, autonomy, and bodily functions.
spina bifida
Spina Bifida
  • Developmental congenital disorder caused by the incomplete closing of the embryonic neural tube. Some vertebrae overlying the spinal cord are not fully formed and remain unfused and open.
  • If the opening is large enough, this allows a portion of the spinal cord to protrude through the opening in the bones
why spastics
Why Spastics?
  • With Spastics, we not only raise money for one cause, but for several causes.
  • All the money we raise goes to further research into the diseases.
  • The more money we raise, the sooner we can find cures and ways to limit the effect of the diseases.
