Release Your Potential

National Stroke Association is a proud advocacy partner of the Release Your Potential spasticity education campaign. Spasticity is a condition affecting many stroke survivors. It does not allow voluntary relaxation of muscles and makes movement, posture and balance difficult. It can affect your ability to move one or more of your limbs, or to move one side of your body. While there is no cure for spasticity, there are treatments.

    Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the November 8 Release Your Potential®spasticity webinar!
