Overall, the review highlights the challenges faced by individuals suffering from severe spasticity and the potential benefits of Intrathecal Baclofen Pump (ITB) therapy. The review provides a brief explanation of ITB therapy, which involves delivering anti-spasm medication directly to the central nervous system.

The review also mentions some of the conditions for which ITB therapy has been proven to be helpful. However, it would be useful to provide more specific information on the effectiveness of ITB therapy for different conditions, as well as the potential risks and side effects associated with this treatment.

In addition, it would be helpful to provide information on how to access ITB therapy and what to expect during the treatment process. Overall, the review could be more informative and comprehensive with additional details on the benefits and potential drawbacks of ITB therapy for managing spasticity.

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Spinal Cord Injury

  • Stroke

Living with any of these conditions is incredibly challenging. Dealing with spasms, muscle stiffness, and pain on a daily basis only exacerbates the difficulty of day-to-day life.

Our commitment to finding the latest and most advanced medical technologies enables us to help our patients regain control of their lives and live pain-free. This is why we are committed to offering targeted drug therapy treatments. By utilizing the ITB Therapy pump system, patients who suffer from spasticity can experience life with fewer spasms and virtually no pain.

How does ITB Therapy work?

ITB is a targeted drug therapy that distributes medication directly from a subdermal pump into the area of your spinal cord that is affected by your condition. ITB Therapy delivers Lioresal® Intrathecal, a liquid form of baclofen, directly into the intrathecal space. Because the medication is administered precisely, a much smaller dose is required, thereby minimizing the side effects that often accompany oral medication.

What are the benefits of ITB Therapy?

Direct Distribution – Medication is administered directly to the specific area affected by pain, providing more direct pain relief that takes effect much faster than oral medication.

High Efficiency – Because the medication is directly distributed, it works faster and longer in the area experiencing pain, stiffness, or spasms.

Less Frequent Dosing – Fewer doses of medication are required compared to conventional drug delivery methods for the desired results.

Minimal Side Effects – Targeting the drug to one area of the body reduces the harsh side effects that can affect the entire body. This minimizes the “buzz” or cloudy feeling that often accompanies these drugs.

Lower Dosing Tolerance – The body will have a lower overall tolerance to the medication, which means there is no need to increase the dosage as frequently. This will save the body in the long run and prevent damage to the liver and other organs that are affected when taking prescription drugs.
