Abstract

This focus group, qualitative study (N = 18) reports the psychosocial impact, specifically, of spasticity symptoms on a sample of people with MS (multiple sclerosis). MS, a chronic disabling disease which attacks the centralnervous system, currently affects about 100,000 people in the UK and estimates indicate that worldwide prevalence varies from around 10 to 250 per 100,000. The cause remains unknown and the rate of disease progression variesamong individuals. The disease of MS itself has a severe impact on psychological well-being and quality of life. However, there is little evidence about the additional impact of the spasticity-related symptoms, which includeinvoluntary muscle contractions, loss of dexterity, loss of balance, incontinence and pain. These are shown here to lead to further distress and embarrassment and to have a detrimental influence on emotional and social relationships.
