Comprehensive instrumented muscle and joint assessments should be considered when prescribing Botulinum NeuroToxin-A (BoNT-A) treatment in spastic paresis. In a child with spastic paresis, comprehensive evaluation following treatment with BoNT-A, serial casting, and physiotherapy showed that short-term improvements in gait occurred without changes in muscle morphology. Rather, foot flexibility increased.
