This study assessed distal femur and lumbar spine bone mineral density (BMD) Z-scores in children with cerebral palsy. BMD z-score was lower in non-ambulatory than in ambulatory children. Somewhat surprisingly, among ambulatory children, those with better walking abilities had higher BMD z-score than those with more impaired walking ability. Children with cerebral palsy (CP) have increased risk for low bone mineral density (BMD). The aim was to explore the difference in BMD at the distal femur… CONTINUE READING
