Overview

The medical treatment and education of children with cerebral palsy is complex and involves a diverse range of professionals. Moreover, there are a number of different approaches for treating pediatric musculoskeletal impairments, such as therapy, orthotics, and surgery. Dr. Miller's valuable resource helps members of the medical team navigate the complexity of cerebral palsy care. Readers will become familiar with treatments that fall outside of their own disciplines while also benefiting from a review of current practices in their own fields. This comprehensive reference outlines the etiology of cerebral palsy and presents a description of muscle tone and movement problems. Dr. Miller discusses the theory and techniques used by physical and occupational therapists, and he provides suggestions for implementing an Individual Education Plan (IEP). Since the text focuses on improving decision making, recommended treatment algorithms address common questions, such as how to select equipment. Comprehensive coverage of understanding abnormal gaits, as well as the use of braces and wheel chairs, is incorporated into the text. Surgeons will especially appreciate the section that focuses on anatomy and describes surgeries and specific local treatments. Chapters are enhanced by beautiful anatomical drawings depicting key techniques. A companion CD-ROM includes videos of children with walking problems and more than 400 interactive study questions.
