Abstract

Objective: To compare the efficacy of functional strength training in improving gross motor function among the children with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy. Design: Experimental study design with pre-test and post-test. Background: The primary goal of rehabilitation for spastic dipelgic cerebral palsy is functional enhancement by maximizing the independence, life style, and dignity of the patient. A new development for treatment in specialized and well organized manner generated by different neurological treatment approach includes functional strength training. There has been less research explaining about the importance of functional strength training for improvement in functional activities. Method: Fifteen subjects spastic diplegic cerebral palsy were selected under purposive sampling technique and received functional strength training for a period of 10 weeks. Outcome measure: Gross motor function measure-the gross motor function measure is a standardized observational instrument designed to measure changes in gross motor function over time in children with CP. Results: Statistical analysis done by using student’s t-test and showed that there was significant improvement in subjects who received functional strength training. Conclusion: The statistical results show that there is an improvement in gross motor function after 10 weeks of functional strength training program
