Muscolo-skeletal disorders and hip deformity play a key role on future development of motor and adaptive functions in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Lateral migration of the femoral head increases on average 7.7% per year and may progress in association with acetabular dysplasia to hip dislocation. Conservative preservation of muscle length and balance(More)
Self-reported gait unsteadiness is often a problem in neurological patients without any clinical evidence of ataxia, because it leads to reduced activity and limitations in function. However, in the literature there are only a few papers that address this disorder. The aim of this study is to identify objectively subclinical abnormal gait strategies in(More)
This study compared clinical and functional outcomes after treatment with botulinum toxin A (BTX-A) and BTX-A with casting in children with dynamic equinus foot. Ten children (seven males, three females; mean age 6 years 4 months, SD 2 years 7 months; range 4 to 11 years) with mild spastic diplegia and independent walking were divided into two groups: group(More)
AIM The effect of specific exercise therapy programs on the management of balance and walking disorders in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients have not been fully explained yet. Reproducible measurement systems are especially required to show their efficacy. The aim of the present case series study was to explore the feasibility of an aerobic treadmill(More)
BACKGROUND Hip dislocation is common in children with cerebral palsy (CP). At birth they do not have musculoskeletal deformities but they develop over time due to the combined effects of the movement disorder and impaired gross motor function. Early detection and treatment of a hip at risk is needed to modify the natural of hip development in CP. AIM The(More)
