Extracorporeal Shock Waves in the Treatment of Equinovarus Foot in a Duchenne Patient: A Case Report

Background: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is characterized by a progressive muscular weakness, with loss of independent ambulation. When the disease results in the complete loss of ambulation, one of the purposes of treatment during the latest phase is to prevent or reduce complications such as foot deformities.
A 20-year-old DMD patient had a complete loss of muscular strength in the inferior and superior limbs and a severe bilateral clubfoot deformity. Active movements were not possible, while passive motion was very limited in dorsiflexion and pronation, inversion and eversion, with stronger limitation on the right foot.
