About

The proprioceptive training with a therapy regime enhances the body's somatosensory input that in result changes the body to be more functional in different types of interactions. This study is dedicated to finding out how much proprioception training is helpful in gross motor function level improvement and enhances functional activities of CP children

Full description

Proprioception plays an important role in the correct execution of efferent motor performance as 70% of cerebral palsy population have deficit in receiving somatosensory signals3. Tradition physical therapy exercises including strengthening followed by stretching etc. should be reviewed and the therapy must be more oriented to overall individual growth and development31. There is a need to push the cerebral palsy population to be exercised with proprioceptive stimulation for their maximum participation in the activities of daily life including both personal and social aspects. The proprioceptive training with a therapy regime enhances the body's somatosensory input that in result changes the body to be more functional in different types of interactions. This study is dedicated to finding out how much proprioception training is helpful in gross motor function level improvement and enhances functional activities of CP children.
