Tone is the resistance of muscle to stretch or passive elongation (see Chapter 23). Spasticity is a velocitydependent increase in the stretch reflex, whereas rigidity is the resistance of the limb to passive movement in the relaxed state (non–velocity-dependent). Variability in tone is common because patients with spasticity can vary in their presentation throughout the day and with positional changes or mood. Some patients will demonstrate little tone at rest (static tone) but experience a surge of tone when they attempt to move the muscle during a functional activity (dynamic tone).
