Does acupuncture help patients with spasticity? A narrative review
Publication date: Available online 5 November 2018Source: Annals of Physical and Rehabilitation MedicineAuthor(s): Yi Zhu, Yujie Yang, Jianan LiAbstractSpasticity is a motor disorder encountered after upper motor neuron lesions. It adversely affects quality of life in most patients and causes long-term burden of care and has significant financial implications. The effect of conventional therapies for spasticity including physical therapy, surgery, and pharmacotherapy are not always satisfying because of the short-term effects or side effects in some patients. Acupuncture is a part of traditional medicine originating from C...

Botulinum toxin type A or selective neurotomy for treating focal spastic muscle overactivity?
ConclusionBotulinum toxin type A has the highest level of evidence and the largest range of indications. However, the botulinum toxin effect is reversible and seems less effective, which supports a permanent surgical treatment such as selective neurotomy, especially for the spastic foot. Further research is needed to compare the effect of botulinum toxin type A and selective neurotomy for the different types of spastic muscle overactivity and clinical patterns.

Adjunct therapies to improve outcomes after botulinum toxin injection in children: a systematic review
ConclusionLower-limb posture with casting in children has a high level of evidence, but the long-term efficacy of short-leg casting needs to be evaluated. A comparison between the different modalities of casting is missing, and studies specifically devoted to testing the different kinds of casting are needed. Moreover, the delay to casting after BTX injection is not clear. Data on electrical stimulation are not conclusive. Despite the small number of studies, resistance training could be an interesting adjunct therapy notably to avoid loss of strength after BTX injection.

Boosting syntax training with temporally regular musical primes in children with cochlear implants
ConclusionsThe findings extend the previously observed beneficial short-term effects of regular musical primes in the laboratory to long-term training effects. Results suggest that the musical primes improved the processing of the syntactic training material, thus enhancing the training effects on grammatical processing as well as phonological processing and sequencing of speech signals. The findings can be interpreted within the dynamic attending theory (postulating the modulation of attention over time) and associated oscillatory brain activity. Furthermore, the findings encourage the use of rhythmic structures (even in ...
