Abstract

Objectives: The aim of this work was to show Effect of induced spherical based modified balance board on improvement of sitting level stage in spastic cerebral palsy children.

Method: Thirty children were enrolled in this study and randomly assigned into two groups; group A (induced spherical based modified balance board plus traditional physiotherapy program), and group B (traditional physiotherapy program only). Level of sitting scale was used to detect and follow sitting stage of development. This measurement was taken before initial treatment and after 12 weeks of treatment. The children parents in group (A) were instructed to complete 6 hours of home routine program.

Results: Data analysis was available on the 30 spastic cerebral palsy children participated in the study. The mean value of Level of sitting scale in both groups at baseline measurement (pre-treatment) was insignificant (p>0.05). By comparison of both groups there was insignificant improvement in Level of sitting scale (p>0.05). The difference between pre and post treatment results was significant in both groups in favor of the study group (p=0.0018).

Conclusion: According the results of this study it can be concluded that the combined effect of physiotherapy training program in addition to induced modified balance board can be recommended in improvement sitting stage of development in spastic cerebral palsy children.
