Clinical Trial Summary

Cerebral palsy is the most familiar motor disorder of childhood. Consistent with the results of recent scientific researches BOBATH approach in physical restoration of youngsters with cerebral palsy promotes formation of motor skills. Improvement in mobility has been primary goal in treatment of CP. There are only a few studies available within the efficacy of "task-oriented training" to improve gross motor function in CP child. Hence, this comparative study is undertaken to gauge the effect of task-oriented training verses neurodevelopmental training on gross motor function in cerebral palsy child. Objective of this study is to find out the effects of BOBATH technique and Task Training on gross motor function in cerebral palsy children. A Convenient sample of Cerebral Palsy children fulfilling inclusion and exclusion criteria, from physiotherapy OPD of Allied & DHQ hospitals of Faisalabad will be considered. Informed consent will be taken from all patient's caregivers. Patients will be divided into two groups through chit draw randomization. Age of children will be 3 years to 10 years without discrimination of gender. Group A will receive BOBATH training and Group B will receive task training. Data will be collected through Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM-88). Data analyses using SPSS version 25 as a statistical tool.
