Upper extremity spasticity can cause extreme pain combined with multiple headaches that can interfere with the patient's daily sports activities. May lead to a reduction in obesity and improvement in contractures, which may result in similar limitations in daily exercise. Our aim was to examine the exercise style of Canadian physicians using neurolysin type A (BoNT-A) injections to control shoulder spasticity. Fifty Canadian physical therapy and rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians responded to the survey, with an overall expected rate of (36.23%). Respondent demographics come from a variety of states, medical institutions, and affected populations. The maximally injected muscles for shoulder adduction and internal rotation spasticity became the pectoralis major, observed through the latissimus dorsi, pectoralis minor, subscapularis, and teres major. Injection of BoNT-A for complex post-stroke shoulder spasticity is not uncommon, with (81.48%) members reporting that it was used regularly or frequently to treat poststroke spasticity (PSS). BoNT-A dose showed variability in the injected muscles, in addition to the type of toxin used. Sick, caregiver, and practitioner dreams were used to assist in manual control of the sick. As a result, Canadian physicians treating shoulder spasticity vary in their exercise style based on several factors in the individual affected. Future studies will explore best-in-class treatment styles and algorithm improvements to standardize treatment.


Muscle spasticity; Spastic hemiplegia


Spasticity is not a disorder of higher-order motor neurons, but a sensorimotor disorder characterized by intermittent or sustained involuntary muscle activation, with arguably mixed consequences. Spasticity affecting the shoulder is best studied in stroke patients, but shoulder spasticity is associated with psychological stress disorders, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury (SCI), and multiple sclerosis (MS) [1]. Evident in several upper motor neuron disorders, including in 2010, indicated that shoulder spasticity developed after 4 months (58%). Depending on the shoulder postural pattern, muscle hyperactivity increases in different combinations of musculature after stroke [2]. The shoulder may have limited energetic or passive range of motion due to increased tension or muscle-tendon contraction leading to muscle shortening or contracture. Doubled tension predominates, resulting in normal attempts at internal rotation and adduction of the shoulder. Of the five major positions defined by the means, Roll 3 was observed as the most frequently occurring position in the stroke, with shoulders inwardly rotated, elbows flexed, and wrists and forearms fairly [3].

Upper extremity spasticity causes many complications, along with pain and interference with patients' daily activities, including hygiene and dressing. Uncontrolled upper extremity spasticity can lead to joint loss of range of motion, development of contractures, and exacerbation of limited participation. Although the literature often mentions pectoralis major and subscapularis as specialties, deltoids, trapezius, teres major and teres minor, pectoralis major, subscapularis, supraspinatus and spine Inferior, coracobrachial, latissimus dorsi, and long head of biceps and triceps tissue. Muscle tissue preference for injection is largely due to unpublished prejudices or experience. The 2022 European Consensus recognized the preferences of the expert group. This included the teres and deltoid major musculature as common targets, as well as the commonly studied major musculature of the subscapularis and pectoral muscles [4].

Neurolysin type A (BoNT-A) can be used to treat focal spasticity. In the Canadian Stroke Best Practice Guidelines, the use of BoNT-A for upper extremity spasticity to increase range of motion and reduce pain achieved level B evidence within 6 months poststroke, and level B evidence more than 6 months after stroke. It states that level A evidence has been achieved [5]. Several randomized controlled trials have evaluated the use of BoNT-A within the shoulder girdle musculature in post-stroke spasticity and associated variability in musculature, dose, and injected dilution. There may be conflicting evidence about its efficacy. It is currently not clear how Canadian physicians are currently using BoNT-A to treat shoulder musculature spasticity. There is no guide to explain. Our aim was to determine the contemporary practice of Canadian physicians in manipulating shoulder girdle spasticity in general. To determine barriers, we created an online survey [6].


Participants in this study were Canadian physicians licensed to use BoNT-A to treat spasticity. Resident physicians or medical students were excluded. Seventy-nine respondents' physicians initiated the study, 21 respondents submitted a partially completed questionnaire, and 4 respondents did not use her BoNT-A to treat spasticity. Both groups were excluded from the study [7]. Finally, 54 completed questionnaires were included in the final analysis. A previous study by Kassam et al. includes approximately 138 of his PM&R physicians in Canada dedicated to spasticity management. We also assessed the practice patterns of Canadian physicians involved in spasticity. Of the 54 respondents included in the final analysis, 50 were her PM&R physicians, representing the approximate response rate (36.23%) of her PM&R physicians in Canada involved in spasticity management. A complete questionnaire was defined if participants answered at least (50%) all questions in the skip logic setting [8]. Overall (61.54%), physicians identified barriers to intramuscular administration of BoNT-A in patients with shoulder spasticity compared to other regions of the upper extremities. Participants identified clinical competence or limitations as major barriers to treatment. These include doctor/clinic funding (15.38%), clinics without necessary equipment (13.46%), clinic staff time constraints (9.62%), and lack of interdisciplinary care (26.92%).) It is included. It contains. None of the respondents felt that BoNT-A was sufficiently effective in clinical practice [9].


The main finding of this study is that Canadian physicians use BoNT-A as a standard intervention to treat spastic shoulder, despite the lack of official guidance on shoulder muscles in the BoNT-A product monograph. That's what I did. It was supposed to be similar to this Study and studies a study examining treatment patterns by UK physicians. Our study surveyed a large and diverse group of physicians with respect to geographic area, number of patients, clinic location, and clinical experience with BoNT-A.

In Canada, PM&R is a leader in the practice of non-surgical procedures to treat spasticity [10]. By recruiting participants through CANOSC, the largest national organization of primarily her PM&R physicians specializing in the treatment of spasticity, the physicians in this study will provide non-surgical procedures to the majority of spasticity patients nationwide will be able to provide have a nature.

Our study is novel in that it includes spasticity with multiple etiologies, not just post-stroke. Spasticity treatment goals, shoulder treatment frequency, units used for each muscle of the three available BoNT-A formulations, BoNT-A complications, injection methods, and barriers to BoNT-A treatment. We also evaluated the use of alternative therapies such as phenol and surgery.

The use of intramuscular BoNT-A to treat shoulder spasticity varies widely between physicians and clinics. Some variability can be expected due to patient complexity, including number of muscles involved, degree of spasticity, and degree of disability, physician experience, and patient goals. In the absence of an established treatment algorithm, the course of treatment ultimately depends on the discretion and preference of the physician, ability to consult complementary medicine professionals, ease of access to equipment, physician preference in muscle selection, and the type of muscle being used. Depends on injection technique leave it up to modality preference and minimum setting. All the criteria required for intervention make a difference in treatment patterns.

The most frequently injected muscle for the treatment of shoulder spasticity is the pectoralis major muscle, which has been confirmed in previous studies. It was a common muscle, but the rest of the muscles were very different. For example, although participants had similar frequencies of injections to mm. The subscapularis muscle was found to be injected 1.9 times more often by him than the latissimus dorsi muscle. His recent randomized controlled trial showed that injection of BoNT-A into the subscapularis muscle improved shoulder spasticity, range of motion, and pain. The reason for this variability may be related to the labeling of each BoNT-A product monograph, which does not identify the muscles of the shoulder girdle.

This classification system was one of his first attempts to classify common patterns of upper extremity spasticity due to stroke alone, and his 5 it shows an overview of the upper limb posture. Further studies confirmed the original results, showing a nearly consistent distribution across the five post-stroke postures. Position 3 (shoulder internal rotation and adduction, elbow flexion, neutral forearm, and wrist) was the most common in his studies, but these results may help establish a practical system for stroke patients. It supports Gomes et al. Note that our scoring system has practical limitations, as reviewers can only reach agreement in the first round of independent scoring. Limitations of this study include spontaneous response bias. This makes participants who are more interested in the study more likely to participate. This may lead to underestimation of the study population. Response bias can also occur when participants choose responses that reflect expectations rather than clinical practice. Furthermore, we did not examine treatment outcomes from the perspective of patients or health care professionals. Although this study had a small sample size, it likely illustrates the practice of his PM&R professionals in Canada dealing with spastic shoulders in both inpatient and outpatient settings. In addition, this is the largest study to date examining the treatment of spastic shoulder by Canadian PM&R professionals. Finally, due to the snowball pattern, we were unable to track the number of people who received the link, so we were unable to calculate an accurate response rate.


Our investigation found that Canadian authors used BoNT-A as a useful treatment for shoulder spasticity with minimal risks and complications.Class structure and treatment of spastic shoulder without improved algorithms, treatment variability will be primarily based solely on physician preference. Future guidelines include the introduction of shoulder spasticity treatment algorithms to ensure patients receive consistent treatment regardless of where they live in Canada. For this research, topnotch information was collected and stored securely primarily on his web-based platform, Alchemer. Data were then downloaded to an Excel spreadsheet and imported into the Deal R statistical software package for information analysis. Descriptive data were analyzed to describe, synthesize, and summarize information. To document the results, an open-ended content assessment was conducted.
