About

Statement of the problem:- Does the lower limb pedalling exercise from inclined position improve functional ability and trunk control in children with diplegic cerebral palsy? Null Hypothesis:- There will be no effect of lower limb pedalling exercise from inclined position on functional ability and trunk control in children with diplegic cerebral palsy

Full description

Subjects A convenient sample of children diagnosed as spastic diplegic cerebral palsy (CP) from both sexes will be recruited based on a pilot study according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria. They will be selected from the out-patient private clinics in Giza and Tenth of Ramadan City. Study design: Randomized controlled clinical trial. Children will receive intervention type randomly, 15 child received the designed physical therapy program and the pedaling exercise from inclined position and the other 15 child receieved the designed physical therapy program only. Children will be assessed by measuring functional ability with Gross Motor Functional measures and trunk control with trunk control measurement scale
