virtuoso Productions says:

Question: how often should you stretch your limbs? Generally, muscles go back to the spastic position after a stretch.

Hi Tara 🌞
Thank you so much for this video! It contains so much information and you articulate everything so clearly. It's really great that you put all of these stretches/exercises in this one video so I can make it a regular routine.
I am so grateful for you because you have so much compassion and care so much about helping people like me with neurological mobility issues!

Kicknowledge Smith says:

I feel like if Spasticity/tone wasn't a thing, I'd be back to my old self. Spasticity/tone is hindering me a lot. I will keep fighting
