Effects on motor development of kicking and stepping exercise in preterm infants with periventricular brain injury: a pilot study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Preterm infants with periventricular brain injury (PBI) have a high incidence of atypical development and leg movements. OBJECTIVE Determine whether kicking and treadmill stepping intervention beginning at 2 months corrected age (CA) in children with PBI improves motor function at 12 months CA when compared with control subjects. METHOD In a… (More)
