Research Project

At Frazier Rehab and the University of Louisville, the research team, led by Dr. Susan Harkema, is exploring “Baclofen with Locomotor Training: The Effect on Function and Neuroplasticity in Chronic Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury.”  The project is designed to examine the impact of the antispasticity medication baclofen on locomotion in chronic incomplete spinal cord injuries in a prospective, controlled, randomized study. 

Baclofen is a drug primarily used to treat spasticity and does not build up tolerance.  The team at Frazier Rehab and UofL will be examining the effects of the medication when coupled with locomotor therapy to treat spinal cord injuries.

For more information or to be a part of the study, call 1-866-540-7719.
