Cycling Good For Spasticity ?

Cure O

On some thread I think you said you wanted to get rid of your spasticity.

This provides converging evidence for the anti-spastic potential of acute unloaded leg cycling in individuals with MS.

I tried it when I had spasticity and found the spasticity lessened significantly after about 10 minutes on the machine.

My spasticity seems to be history for the moment ...

I stopped taking abruptly because I thought its effectiveness was wearing off and I was tired of the head-ache it was giving me every night when I "came down" off of this drug. Next week: I am in the hospital. I told my ...
