A group of doctors from around the world, who are experts in treating muscle stiffness and spasm (also called spasticity), reviewed the current scientific evidence -supporting the effectiveness of using botulinum toxin injections in treatment of spasticity that results from a stroke. When evidence is not available, they discussed and agreed on the best way to treat spasticity using botulinum toxin. The recommendations made by these expert doctors can be used by less-experienced doctors as a guide to how best to use botulinum toxin injection in treating spasticity after a stroke.
