About

The goal of this pilot study is to study the effect of Vojta therpy on upper extremity function in children with cerebral palsy. The main questions are: * to study the effect of Vojta therapy on upper extremity function in children with cerebral palsy in terms of range of motion and function * to study the effect of Vojta therapy on upper extremity function in children with cerebral palsy in terms of motion analysis while perform function

Full description

Vojta therapy is an old treatment method which was discovered by Professor Vaclav Vojta, a neurologist and pediatrician. It has been used to treat children with impair motor function in Thailand since 2011. Vojta therapy encourage the movement of children via positioning and stimulate the specified zone.
