In a study it was evaluated that to inhibit the spastic
posture of CP child, there is an intense need to find out the appropriate angles of hip joint and knee joint flexion.24 In our study hammock positioning promoted hip joint and spinal flexion that helped to overcome extensor tone.
Hereditary "pure" spastic
paraplegia: a clinical and genetic study of 22 families.
No difference was determined between the bilateral spastic
and the mixed group in respect of the GMFS-D points (p>0.05).
The presence of neonatal seizures in patients with CP, the use of antiepileptic drugs at discharge from the NICU, the presence of bilateral spastic
(tetraplegie) CP, abnormal background activity on neonatal EEG, the presence of epileptic activity on the sixth-month EEG, the presence of cerebral atrophy, hydrocephalus and cerebral abnormality on cranial MRI, the presence of associated problems such as visual deficits, microcephaly and mental retardation are significant risk factors for the development of epilepsy in CP cases.
As per the clinical history obtained from the family, the initial clinical manifestations were spastic
scissoring gait and frequent falls between the ages of one and three years.
quadriplegia showed the highest correlation with severe GMD.
Ultrasonographic assessment of spastic
gastrocnemius muscle was also performed.
In children diagnosed with spastic
unilateral CP, GMFCS levels I and II were the most prevalent (92.5%), whereas quadriplegic patients were mostly classified at levels IV and V (95.6%).
Materials and methods: Six patients with spastic
tetraplegia CP aged 3-15 years were enrolled in this study.

Daithi Sherry, five, was diagnosed with spastic
diplegia cerebral palsy when he was two.
Doctors diagnosed her with spastic
diplegic cerebral palsy, which leaves her legs stiff and causes discomfort.
