1. Citation: Dewar, R., Love, S., & Johnston, L. M. (2015). Exercise interventions improve postural control in children with cerebral palsy: a systematic review. Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology, 57(6), 504-520. doi:10.1111/dmcn.12660
Keywords: cerebral palsy
Abstract: Summarizes 45 studies reporting on 13 exercise interventions that may improve postural control in children with cerebral palsy (CP). 5 interventions showed a moderate level of evidence: gross motor task training, hippotherapy, treadmill training with no body weight support (no-BWS), trunk-targeted training, and reactive balance training. 6 interventions had weak or conflicting evidence: functional electrical stimulation (FES), hippotherapy simulators, neurodevelopmental therapy (NDT), treadmill training with body weight support, virtual reality, and visual biofeedback. Progressive resistance exercise was an ineffective intervention, and upper limb interventions lacked high-level evidence.
