Valley’s Center for Pediatric Spasticity is the area’s only comprehensive center for children with spasticity (muscle rigidness and spasms) caused by cerebral palsy, stroke, or other neurological issues. Parents can take comfort in knowing that all the services their children need are right here in one place. 

Coordinated Care

The Center for Pediatric Spasticity offers the convenience of seeing several pediatric specialists during the same appointment time. Patients benefit from the coordinated medical expertise of many specialists; parents benefit from having all services available in one location; and physicians benefit from being able to evaluate patients together and consult with each other on site – enabling them to develop the most optimal treatment plan for each child.
