At the Center of Clavitherapy - the Spring, of Strzeniówka, 10 Jeżynowa St, five patients were examined from April 26th till May 15th, 1999. According to full desired scheme of such evaluation there were two examination sessions: the first one prior to admission and the same on discharge. Two female and three male sufferers, aged from 38 up to 58, average age estimated at 47, had case histories from one year up to 21 years of disease. Four patients had established diagnosis of disseminated sclerosis (multiplex sclerosis) with full documentation and the fifth person suffered from motor neuron disease with focal demyelinization.

THE METHOD: each case was examined twice and special forms were filled in to evaluate motoric, sensory and vegetative systems, sphincter function and mental condition.

CONCLUSIONS:

· motoric system: all patients considerably improved their motion abilities. Formerly, all needed some support to walk. Afterwards, they could move around all by themselves, even upstairs or downstairs. Motor coordination was deliberately enhanced and easier movements could be observed. Spasticity was significantly decreased.

· sensory system: numbness was diminished or completely gone

· sphincters activity: generally improved, no nycturia reported, bowel movements regular once a day. Blood supply of limbs was proved to be more effective as significant rise of skin temperature was detected. The examined reported better eyesight together with emotional relief.

Finally, this is to certify that clavitherapy seems to be effective in DS (SM) treatment as the group of five patients made significant progress in physical abilities.
