I don't think there has been really new developments lately, but
I myself have recently found Chinese herbal medicine, seems to work better on my spastic muscles than Baclofen for example. Obviously Chinese medicine is very old, just new to me :)

Have tried diazapam too, but that didn't really work for me.
Stemcells could be used on adults as well as in children, I think China has the most experience in that, anf that is newest treatment I think.

Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy has been around for years, and works on adults as well as in children, not many people know that.

I wish that there were treatments... I am hoping that some time in the future there will be something.
