The effects of physical therapy on individual muscle force production and function in children with cerebral palsy
MetadataShow full item record
Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a chronic neurological disorder that affects the ability to perform basic motor tasks, posture, and muscle coordination. Current intervention techniques, including physical therapy, can produce vast improvements in some children, while other children do not respond. The underlying muscular improvements that are associated with physical therapy are unclear, and may be important to understanding why only some children benefit from therapeutic interventions. Musculoskeletal modeling and simulation can be used to determine changes in dynamic muscle force production and muscle ...
