Premature declines in function among adults with cerebral palsy (CP) are generally attributed to weakness, spasticity and orthopaedic abnormalities, as well as chronic pain and fatigue. Very little research or clinical attention has been devoted to the confluence and consequences of early muscle wasting and obesity as mediators of secondary comorbidity in this population, and perhaps more importantly, to the role of lifestyle to potentiate these outcomes. At present, there are no national… Expand
