IJERPH, Vol. 16, Pages 3940: Potential of Vibroacoustic Therapy in Persons with Cerebral Palsy: An Advanced Narrative Review International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health doi: 10.3390/ijerph16203940 Authors: Jiří Kantor Lucia Kantorová Jana Marečková Danping Peng Zdeněk Vilímek Vibroacoustic therapy (VAT) is a treatment method that uses sinusoidal low-frequency sound and music. The purpose of this narrative review is to describe the effects of VAT on motor function in people with spastic cerebral palsy (CP) according to study design as well as providing information about the age of the participants, measurement tools, and sound frequencies that were used. The systematic search strategy based on the first two steps of a standard evidence-based approach were used: (1) formulation of a search question and (2) structured documented search including assessment of the relevance of abstracts and full texts to the search question and inclusion criteria. Out of 823 results of the search in 13 scholarly databases and 2 grey literature sources, 7 papers were relevant. Most of the relevant studies in children and adults presented significant improvement of motor function. According to the study design, only five experimental studies and two randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies were available. In the discussion, findings of this review are compared to other related methods that use mechanical vibrations without music....

ConclusionsWomen with CP are at increased risk of preterm birth and other adverse pregnancy outcomes, suggesting that they deserve extra surveillance during antenatal care. Further studies, with information on type of CP and gross motor function, are warranted in order to better understand the association between CP and pregnancy outcome.

This report on four cases demonstrates that mimicking normal and variable GM sequences might have a posit ive cascading effect on neurodevelopment. The results need to be interpreted with caution and replication studies on larger samples are warranted. Nonetheless, this innovative approach may represent a first step into a new intervention strategy.

Authors: Weigl DM Abstract BACKGROUND: In non-ambulatory patients with cerebral palsy, the presence of scoliosis has a major impact on health and quality of life. The aim of this review is to raise awareness of caregivers from various professions to the extent of the problem, to explain the natural history of neuromuscular scoliosis and its pathophysiology, and to describe up-to-date optional conservative and surgical treatments.

Conclusions There is weak evidence for a positive effect of short-term whole-body vibration training on spasticity of lower limbs, mobility, balance, and postural control. Besides, positive effect of the long-term effect of whole-body vibration training on mobility in patients with neurological disorders. The optimal whole-body vibration training parameters in treating patients with neurological disorders remain unclear.

Conclusions Our results showed significant changes in the adductor muscles’ amplitude, Adduction Sum, and Net Adduction Index. These results indicate that forces that worsen hip dislocation may develop, and therefore, abduction bar should either not be used for spastic cerebral palsy patients or should only be used with hip compression wrapping in place as well.

The objective was to analyze the impact of resistance therapy on the improvement in the motor function using a review and meta-analysis. A comprehensive literature research was conducted in Medline (PubMed), Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) Web of Knowledge, and Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro) in relation to clinical trials in which resistance therapy was used and motor function was assessed. Twelve controlled clinical trials and three non-controlled clinical trials (only one intervention arm) studies were identified. In terms of pre–post difference, the overall intra-group effect was in favor o...
