    Orthotic management of cerebral palsy This is an extract from Chapter 9 of ‘Paediatric Orthotics’ edit-ed by Christopher Morris. The figures and tables have been removed. The orthopaedic editor is Luciano Dias. The book has recently been published by Mac Keith Press as part of the Clinics in Developmental Medicine Series. The usefulness of BoNT in the management of spasticity secondary to a variety of clinical conditions is increasing. It is now well accepted for the management of movement disorders, particularly dystonia. There is an increasing evidence base for the use as a management tool in spasticity. The products now have a licence for use in focal spasticity.

    Spasticity in children is most commonly associated with cerebral palsy, but can also be associated with other non-progressive brain disorders. Aims of treatment Treatment involves managing spasticity to optimise movement and posture, while minimising potential secondary musculoskeletal deformity, as well as managing developmental and clinical. The first part discusses the definition, aetiology, classification, imaging and neuropathology, while the second focuses on the management of the individual challenges that children with cerebral palsy face, such as spasticity, dyskinesia, feeding problems and scoliosis.

Spastic cerebral palsy is the type of cerebral palsy characterized by spasticity or high muscle tone often resulting in stiff, jerky movements. Cases of spastic CP are further classified according to the part or parts of the body that are most affected. Such classifications include spastic diplegia, spastic hemiplegia, spastic quadriplegia, and in cases of single limb involvement, spastic Specialty: Neurology.
