Answer

Because agreement among clinical spasticity scales is poor, a comprehensive set of tests is needed to evaluate the effects of treatment. Some of the more commonly used spasticity rating scales are as follows:

  • Spasm Frequency Scale

  • Medical Research Council Motor Testing Scale

  • Modified Ashworth Scale,

  • Adductor Tone Rating

  • Global Pain Scale
