Brooks, Sandra C. MS PT

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to discuss the use of mobilization as a technique for managing the secondary physiological limitations that affect the movement of children with cerebral palsy. An assessment procedure is outlined using a case example that differentiates between hamstring contracture and hip joint connective tissue tightness in a child who sacral sits. The treatment implications are examined in relation to the specific functional skill of independent sitting.
