This lecture is the second in a 2-part series about the relationship between upper limb spasticity and contracture, prevalence and predictors of contracture, interventions that have been evaluated using RCTs to prevent and reverse upper limb contracture including stretching, splinting and casting (disappointing key message: no benefit from any of these interventions). Karl concludes with reflections on what to do clinically to prevent or reverse contractures.

The lecture was recorded during an online workshop in 2021.
