This preliminary study was designed to investigate the effects of botulinus toxin Type A and phenol treatments on electrophysiologic tests evaluating spinal afferent and efferent motor pathways involved in spasticity. The questions posed were whether different types of mechanisms act on reducing spasticity with these different treatment modalities and whether the tests are correlated with clinical recovery. Twenty patients with lower limb spasticity secondary to stroke were randomly assigned to… CONTINUE READING
