Scapular Alignment and Cerebral Palsy
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Pediatric therapists often notice that scapular alignment can play a role in the function of individuals with cerebral palsy. Researchers took a closer look at the link between scapular alignment and upper extremity performance.
This study included eighty-five children who were 3-6 years old (63 boys and 22 girls) with spastic hemiplegic cerebral palsy. To determine scapular upward rotation, each participant was evaluated using Postural Zone software. The Pediatric Arm Function Test was used to evaluate upper extremity functional abilities in this study.
