Effects of strength training program on hip extensors and knee extensors strength of lower limb in children with spastic
diplegic cerebral palsy.
Positioning provided significant improvement and positive effect in TLR of spastic
and athetoid CP children.
When intra-group comparisons were done according to the CP type, no significant change was observed after treatment in the bilateral spastic
children in respect of the GMFS-B and C points (p>0.05), however there were significant improvements in D and E points (z=-2.821, p=0.005; z=-2.403, p=0.016, respectively), and MAS and GAS measurements (z=-3.217, p=0.001; z=-3.100, p=0.002, respectively).
HSAN2B is a predominantly sensory neuropathy and has been rarely described with spastic
quadriplegia, postnatal CNS infections, malnutrition and highly prevalent accompanying impairments were most notably associated with more severe GMD in our patients.
Post-treatment ultrasonographic assessment of spastic
gastrocnemius muscle showed a significant improvement in the compressibility ratio in the aquatic exercise group.
According to MACS classification, the majority (88.9%) of children with spastic
unilateral CP were classified at level II (41.7%) or level III (47.2%).
The causes of spastic
CP include periventricular leukomalacia, cerebral dysplasia, hypoxia and intrapartum asphyxia, intracranial hemorrhage, and multiple other factors .
Electromyography (EMG) studies suggest that nonsustained contractures (HFS), spastic
contractures (SPHC), and facial myokymia are related.
children with spastic
diplegia may be able to stand, because they may use their hip adductor spasticity to increase truncal tone, which forms a stable base for them to stay erect.
Joanne said: "I was researching spastic
diplegia cerebral palsy and came across an online article on SDR operatios .
(2) About 70 to 80 percent of affected individuals have spastic
