ABSTRACT

Background and Objective: In spastic diplegic cerebral palsy, spasticity of limbs will result in reduced range of motion of joints and that may limit the functional recovery of the patient. Main objective of the study is to find the effect of myofascial release technique in reduction of spasticity in spastic diplegic cerebral palsy children.

Methods: A random sampling method is used to select 15 patients with diplegic cerebral palsy. The subjects have underwent myofascial Release for reducing spasticity of hamstrings and to thereby improve knee range of motion. The outcomes are measured by the MAS and goniometry for hamstrings spasticity and knee passive range of motion respectively, on both side limbs.

Results: Wilcoxon signed rank test has been used to find the significance of MAS score and PROM between pre and post in the group . Intra group analysis, showed reduction in spasticity and improvement in range of motion (p<0.005).

Conclusion: This study concluded that myofascial Release is effective to reduce spsticity in spastic diplegic cerebral palsy children.

 Keywords: Spastic Diplegic Cerebral palsy, Myofascial Release, Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS)
