[Pharmacological treatment of spasticity in multiple sclerosis].


PMID 22721367

Abstract

The medicinal treatment of spasticity includes use of oral treatments (baclofène and tizanidine), botulinum toxin, intrathecal baclofène and local application of alcohol or phenol. However, spasticity may not be uncomfortable and may even be useful. Therefore, all spastic diseases do not systematically require treatment. First-line treatments (oral treatments and botulinum toxin) can be considered depending on the local or diffuse nature of the spasticity and depending on the etiology.
