  Purpose
The addition of a self-rehabilitation program to repeated Botulinum Toxin Injections and usual physiotherapy should increase the proportion of patients who attain their Primary Treatment Goal (impairments and function) more than usual care (involving repeated Botulinum Toxin Injections and conventional physiotherapy), in post stroke out-patients with spasticity.

Condition Intervention Phase
Spastic Hemiparesis Other: Self-rehabilitation program Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Randomised Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Effect of a Self-rehabilitation Program in Addition to Usual Treatment for Spasticity (Repeated Botulinum Toxin Injections and Physiotherapy) on Impairment and Activity Limitation in Patients With Spastic Hemiparesis Following Stroke

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS). [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of the Functional Independence Measure (FIM) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • Assessment of Hemispatial neglect [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • Quality of life questionnaire [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • Assessment of slight deficits according MOCA scale (Montréal Cognitive Assessment) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 220
Anticipated Study Start Date: November 2017
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Self-rehabilitation program
Self-rehabilitation program + standard medical care (BTI + conventional physiotherapy)
Other: Self-rehabilitation program
The self-rehabilitation program will be based on muscle stretching, strengthening and task oriented exercises. For each patient, two exercises will be selected by the therapist for each of these 3 domains (total of 6 exercises) from a list of 50 exercises.
No Intervention: Control arm
Arm with standard medical care ( BTI + conventional physiotherapy) without self-rehabilitation program

Detailed Description:

Stroke affects 150 000 persons in France each year. Most patients have activity limitations because of the resulting motor deficit and spasticity. Autonomy in activities of daily living is reduced.

The principal treatment for focal spasticity is currently intramuscular botulinum toxin injection ( Botulinum Toxin Injections).

Botulinum Toxin Injections is classically combined with only 2 to 3 sessions of out-patient physiotherapy per week. This is mainly because of a lack of out-patient therapists. However, this amount of therapy is insufficient and does not follow current literature which shows that the intensity of physiotherapy affects the recovery of impairment and activity. This gap in our health system could be filled by a self-rehabilitation program in addition to physiotherapy.

Recent studies have shown that self-rehabilitation following Botulinum Toxin Injections could significantly improve activity limitation.

The addition of a self-rehabilitation program to Botulinum Toxin Injections and usual out-patient physiotherapy could thus increase the effects of Botulinum Toxin Injections on impairment and activity limitation in patients with spastic hemiparesis following stroke.
