Correlation between the gross motor performance measurement and pediatric balance scale with respect to movement disorder in children with cerebral palsy - Kwon HY, Ahn SY.

[Purpose] To determine whether the Gross Motor Performance Measurement is useful in predicting the future score of the Pediatric Balance Scale, this study examined the correlation between the 2 measurement tools with respect to movement disorder in childre...

A lot of people worry that IVF babies are abnormal as compared to babies made in the bedroom . This is often based on press reports which say that IVF increases the risk of babies having medical problems . This is true , but we need to understand why !This increased risk is applicable only when IVF gives rise to a multiple pregnancy . It's well known that multiple pregnancies increase the risk of prematurity, and preterm babies are at a much higher risk of a whole host of medical problems, such as retinopathy of prematurity, cerebral palsy or mental retardation. This clearly means that it's not the IVF which increases...

This report suggests stance phase stability may be enhanced with AFO/FCs, but swing phase may improve with FO and SMO conditions in children with weakness after SDR. Further studies analyzing gait, balance, and motor function using varying orthoses in children with CP after SDR are warranted.

Conclusions: We report the potential beneficial effects of ITB treatment in patients with inherited ataxia who also suffer from spasticity/spasms. ITB treatment indication in neurological disorders allows for extension to the treatment of spasticity/ spasms in patients with hereditary ataxia.Stereotact Funct Neurosurg

Conclusion: In conclusion, children with cerebral palsy are smaller than healthy children. The difference between 50th percentile of CP patients compared to healthy children supports the need for the use of disorder-specific growth charts. Those charts can help clinicians differentiate growth disorders in patients with CP.What is Known:•Children with cerebral palsy are shorter than healthy children and height is influenced by level of ambulation.• Currently, only reference percentiles of American children with mixed ethical backgrounds are available to evaluate growth.What is New:• This paper presents disord...

Authors: Hwnag J, Lee JA, Cha YJ, Lee DH, You JSH Abstract BACKGROUND: The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) model in order to provide a theoretical foundation of physical therapy diagnosis and intervention. However, the multidirectional relationships between the body structure/function domain variables (spasticity and movement kinematics) and the activity domain variables (e.g. reaching, grasping, folding, and lifting abilities) using the Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT) remain unknown. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the present...

CONCLUSIONS: The use of BTX-A injections in addition to physiotherapy approaches seems to have positive effect on spasticity and ROM. However, the question of whether the treatment of BTX-A plus physiotherapy has a greater improvement on functional capacity, such as gross motor function or gait parameter than only physiotherapy treatments, was inconclusive. Further investigation by rigorous studies is required. PMID: 30856126 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Communication skills of cerebral palsied children are affected by maternal age, educational status, occupation, and child's gender, birth term, origin period of cerebral palsy, clinical type of cerebral palsy, extremity involvement, motor development level and gross motor function. But the method of delivery has no effect on the communication functions of cerebral palsied children. PMID: 30856125 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
