I used to take botulinum toxin. Now I have been using electrostimulation and occupational therapy for over 20 years. Spasticity is weaker than before. Can I get fully rid of the spasticity?

Every therapeutic success—no matter by which method—is welcome. However, it is not yet possible to fully cure spasticity. So far, spasticity is considered irreversible today.

There are many people who benefit from functional electrostimulation (often in conjunction with orthoses, tape or injections) and regular therapy. Overall, there is increasing evidence that a combination of different interventions is more effective in alleviating the symptoms associated with spasticity than an isolated form of treatment.
