Keywords : Spastic Cerebral Palsy, Physical activity for Spastic Cerebral Palsy, Modified Gross Motor Function (GMFM- 88).
Background: Cerebral Palsy (CP) is the most common cause of physical disability in childhood. 57% of CP children in Europe are bilateral spastic (BSCP). They perform on a severely reduced activity level and suffer from reduced mobility or immobility. Physical therapy (PT) plays a central role in managing the condition by focusing on function, movement, and optimal use of the child's potential. The GMFM-88 consists of 88 items in five dimensions: lying and rolling (GMFM-A); sitting (GMFM-B); crawling and kneeling (GMFM-C); standing (GMFM-D); and walking, running and jumping (GMFM-E). Aims and Objectives of the study: To Analyze and Understand the effect of Gross Motor Function on improving Physical Activity with Spastic Cerebral Palsy Children. Data analysis and Results: This study result shows that there is statistically significant improvement in the variables of Modified Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM- 88) in Spastic Cerebral Palsy patients with p values p < 0.05. There was an improvement in a Spastic Cerebral Palsy patient with mean difference of 10.75. Conclusion: This study was concluded by the results of this study that there is statistically significant improvement of the Gross Motor Function (GMFM- 88) of standing in Spastic Cerebral Palsy Children after the intervention of Various Physical activity & Play therapy.
