In this study 11 ambulatory patients (mean 10.8 years) with spastic cerebral palsy were each evaluated with instrumented gait analysis at four different centers. After review of the data, each medical director chose from a list of treatment options. The average variability in static range of motion from physical examination ranged from 25 degrees to 50 degrees. Hip and knee sagittal motion had the best relative variability of 20 degrees to 24%. Via gait analysis, the average variability in… CONTINUE READING
