ITB TherapySM is a precise, targeted treatment proven to reduce severe spasticity caused by stroke. It uses an implanted drug pump that delivers your anti-spastic medication directly to where it is needed inside the spinal cord.
ITB Therapy is recommended to manage and control severe generalized spasticity that is poorly controlled by oral medications or limited because of unwanted side-effects and where other therapies have proven ineffective.
Although there is currently no cure for spasticity, ITB Therapy may treat some of the symptoms of severe spasticity caused by stroke.
