A randomized controlled trial was conducted. Thirty-four patients who previously had a stroke were randomly assigned either an experimental group that received a single session of DDN over the gastrocnemius and tibialis anterior muscles on the spastic leg or a control group that received no intervention. Spasticity (evaluated with the Ashworth Scale); pressure pain thresholds over the deltoid muscle, second metacarpal, and tibialis anterior muscle; and plantar pressure (baropodometry) were collected by a blinded assessor before and 10 minutes after intervention.
