Release Your Potential Teleconference on Treatment options for Severe Spasticity

Release Your Potential Teleconference on treatment options for severe spasticity. Join Medtronic for a Release Your Potential teleconference, a nationwide program designed to educate people about treatment options for severe spasticity. During this 90-minute program you'll hear from a physician who specializes in spasticity management and an Ambassador (a person living with severe spasticity) who is receiving treatment to help manage severe spasticity.
