Background Shock wave therapy is defined as a sequence of single sonic pulses, characterized by
high peaks and a rapid increase in pressure and short duration, which act through
direct modulation of the rheological properties of the muscle tissue; it seems that
the vibration breaks the functional link between the actin and the myosin, reducing
the rigidity of the connective tissue. Previous studies have determined its impact on
patients with various neurological pathologies, such as stroke, CP, and spinal cord
injuries
Objective The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis is to evaluate the long-term
efficacy of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) on reducing lower limb poststroke spasticity in adults
