- Muscle tone tests [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1, and 4 months. ]Measure of changes in Hypertonia measured by Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS).
- Ankle range of motion [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1, and 4 months. ]Measure of changes in Ankle range of motion.
- Hoffman reflex (H-reflex) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1, and 4 months. ]Measure of changes in Hoffman reflex (H-reflex).
- Leg girth [ Time Frame: Baseline,1 ,and 4 mouths. ]
