Clinical Trial Summary

Children with spastic diplegia are at an increased risk of spinal deformities. The most common types of these spinal deformities are scoliosis and kyphosis. Thoracic hyper-kyphosis may adversely affect balance in children with cerebral palsy . The treatment approaches for hyper-kyphosis involved both conservative and surgical treatments. The Conservative approach includes corrective exercises, positioning, and spinal braces. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of conservative orthotic management for kyphotic posture on balance control, and fall risk in cerebral palsied children of spastic diplegia.

Clinical Trial Description

Kyphosis is a posterior convexity of the spine. Children with cerebral palsy show a higher probability of progression of the kyphotic curve. If it is not adequately treated, it becomes fixed where it requires surgical management. Children with cerebral palsy have more probability to balance impairment and falls than normal children and the consequences of that fall are great. The current studies do not properly examine the effectiveness of conservative orthoses on the therapeutic management of kyphosis in children with cerebral palsy. Also, there is a shortage of studies that evaluate how correction of the thoracic kyphosis influences the balance performance and fall risk in children with cerebral palsy. TheraTogs orthosis which consists of an orthotic undergarment and external strapping system has been designed to provide a soft and passive body compression to maintain a typical body postural alignment and to improve posture control. Therefore, the objective of this study was to investigate how the correction of dorsal hyper-kyphotic posture by the TheraTogs orthotic system could influence balance control, and fall risk in cerebral palsied children of spastic diplegia. ;
