Isokinetic assessment of the effects of botulinum toxin injection on spasticity and voluntary strength in patients with spastic hemiparesis.

Abstract

Peak knee flexion during swing phase is frequently reduced following stroke. The main treatment is botulinum toxin injection (BoNT-A) of the Rectus Femoris (RF) muscle. BoNT-A injections have been shown to decrease spasticity (assessed using the modified Ashworth scale) and to improve peak knee flexion during swing phase. Although the effect of BoNT-A has been clearly demonstrated on kinematic parameters during gait, the direct effects on spasticity and strength have been little studied using objective and sensitive outcome measures.
