In two patients with severe central nervous system (CNS) lesions it could be demonstrated that spasticity reduction can be achieved by the coordination dynamic therapy method without administration of spasmolytic drugs. The reduction of spasticity in the short- and long-term memory was measured with the coordination dynamic recording method. When performing rhythmic coordinated movements, the mainly extensor spasticity reduced in the first case in the short-term memory within 35 min of assisted exercising by approximately 68% (easy treatable case). In the second case spasticity reduced in the short-term memory within 58 min of exercising by 15 up to 28% and in the long-term memory within 6 months by 16% (difficult treatable case) as judged by the improvement of the coordination dynamics when exercising on the special coordination dynamic therapy device. Reduction of spasticity without administration of drugs could be achieved in all of the more than 100 patients undergoing coordination dynamic therapy.
