Possible benefits?[edit]

It appears to me that the section "Possible benefits" has something wrong with it, that is it might have been copied from another article to copy formatting and then never deleted, or it is out of order, or some part of it was accidentally deleted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Thomas.Hedden (talkcontribs) 17:03, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

I think it may be vandalism (added here). I'm going to be bold and remove it. Camillus (talk) 23:09, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Actually, strike that - i found a number of citations for possible benefits... Camillus (talk) 23:16, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Furthermore, the first sentence has an intervening clause that is waay to long between the subject and verb. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:29, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Millsysj edits[edit]

I think this article is worse off after the massive changes made by Millsysj. It reads much less clearly and I am still not clear on what the relationship is between spasticity and Upper Motor Neuron Syndrome. It should be reverted back to how it was and if Millsysj wants to add things they should try to work more with in the existing structure of the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Afuhz (talkcontribs) 08:21, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Citation for Ashworth Scale[edit]

I'm not sure how to add references. I saw a "citation needed" insert with reference to the use of the Modified Ashworth Scale for the measurement of spasticity. Here's the article citation: Richard W Bohannon and Melissa B Smith, “Interrater Reliability of a Modified Ashworth Scale of Muscle Spasticity,” Physical Therapy 67, no. 2 (February 1, 1987): 206–207. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:35, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Is it "BMJ" or "TheBMJ" now? --Nbauman (talk) 19:25, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
