Abstract

The aim of this work was to show the efficacy of cervical muscle spasticity control on improving of weight gain in spastic diaplegic cerebral palsy children. Thirty children were enrolled in this study and randomly assigned into two groups; group A (specialized physiotherapy program for cervical muscle spasticity control plus traditional physiotherapy program), and group B(traditional physiotherapy program only). Weight measuring  scale was used to detect and follow weight gain changes. This measurement was taken before initial treatment and after 12 weeks of treatment. The children parents in both groups A and B were instructed to complete 3 hours of home routine program. Data analysis were available on the 30 spastic diaplegic cerebral palsy children participated in the study. The mean value of weight gain changes of both groups at (pre-treatment) was insignificant (p>.05). By comparison of both groups at post-treatment  there was significant improvement in weight gain changes(p<.05). the difference between pre and post treatment results was significant in both groups in favor of the study group (p=0.0002). According to the results of this study it can be concluded that the combined effect of specialized physiotherapy program for cervical muscle spasticity control plus traditional physiotherapy program can be recommended in controlling of weight loss in spastic diaplegic cerebral palsy children.

Keywords: cervical muscles spasticity, vagus nerve, weight gain.
