PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of creative dance instruction on postural control and balance in an 11-year-old with spastic triplegic cerebral palsy, Gross Motor Function Classification Scale level II. DESCRIPTIONS: We conducted 1-hour dance interventions twice weekly for 8 weeks, with a focus on somatosensory awareness and movement in all planes of motion. Computerized dynamic posturography using the SMART Balance Master/EquiTest (NeuroCom) was used to assess postural control and balance reactions before the first class and following the final class...

INTRODUCTION: Children with trunk hypotonia may have limited ability to maintain an upright weight-bearing position, resulting in decreased postural control and a delay in achieving gross motor milestones. PURPOSE: The purpose of this case series is to report the effect of a home-based dynamic standing program on postural control and gross motor activity in 2 children with trunk hypotonia. DESCRIPTIONS: Child 1 (aged 24 months, Gross Motor Function Classification Scale Level IV) and Child 2 (aged 21 months, Gross Motor Function Classification Scale Level V) participated in a standing program using the Upsee harness at home 3 days per week for 12 weeks...

Michael Wininger, Peter Pidcoe
The Academy of Pediatric Physical Therapy Research Summit IV issued a Call to Action for community-wide intensification of a research enterprise in inquiries related to pediatric brain injury and motor disability by way of technological integration. But the barriers can seem high, and the pathways to integrative clinical research can seem poorly marked. Here, we answer the Call by providing framework to 3 objectives: (1) instrumentation, (2) biometrics and study design, and (3) data analytics. We identify emergent cases where this Call has been answered and advocate for others to echo the Call both in highly visible physical therapy venues and in forums where the audience is diverse...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) includes physical therapy (PT) as a related service that may be provided to help students with disabilities benefit from their education. However, the IDEA does not provide specific guidance for the provision of school-based PT, resulting in variations in practice across the United States. The authors examined 22 state and local education agency guidelines available online to find commonalities related to the determination of a student's need for PT...

PURPOSE: This is a scoping review of the literature on interventions for gait in individuals with pediatric spinal cord impairments. SUMMARY OF KEY POINTS: Four categories of interventions were identified: orthoses/assistive devices, electrical stimulation, treadmill training, and infant treadmill stepping. CONCLUSIONS: Studies on orthotic intervention, electrical stimulation, and treadmill training reported benefits for various components of gait...

PURPOSE: To investigate the influence of a weight-reduction program with locomotion-emphasis on improving biomechanical characteristics of children who are obese (OW). METHODS: Ten children who are OW participated in a 6-month multidisciplinary childhood obesity management program (GRP1); another 10 children who are OW participated in the same multidisciplinary childhood obesity management program with additional locomotion-emphasis exercises for improving biomechanical characteristics (GRP2); and 10 control children who are OW with no intervention program...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the validity of the ActiGraph accelerometer (AG) to differentiate between standardized, physical activity tasks using oxygen consumption ((Equation is included in full-text article.)O2) as the criterion measure in children and adolescents with an acquired brain injury; to determine vector magnitude activity intensity cut-points; to compare performance of cut-points to previously published cut-points. METHODS: Twenty-seven children performed standardized walking and stepping activities wearing a portable indirect calorimeter, AG, and heart rate monitor...

PURPOSE: To examine concurrent and predictive validity of the optimality list "Detailed Assessment of General Movements (GMs) During Preterm and Term Age." METHODS: Video clips of general movements were analyzed for 20 infants born preterm without severe brain lesions. Concurrent validity of the optimality list compared with the General Movement Assessment (GMA) was examined. The General Movement Optimality Scores (GMOSs) between infants with normal and poor repertoire GMA were examined...

PURPOSE: This study describes survey responses about implementation of the congenital muscular torticollis clinical practice guideline (CMT-CPG) by pediatric physical therapists (PT) and successes and challenges with knowledge-brokering activities. METHODS: An online survey was distributed to pediatric PTs who self-identified with practice experience with congenital muscular torticollis. Data were analyzed for implementation frequency of guideline recommendations and differences pre and postpublication of the CMT-CPG...

PURPOSE: This systematic review compared intensive bimanual therapy (IBT) and modified constraint-induced movement therapy (mCIMT) in upper limb function in children with unilateral cerebral palsy (CP). METHODS: Four electronic databases were searched from 2009 through October 2015 for randomized control trials comparing IBT with mCIMT. RESULTS: Eight articles met the inclusion criteria; 5 randomized clinical trials with 221 participants with unilateral CP, ages 1...

PURPOSE: To describe the physical therapy intervention and outcomes for a 20-week progressive running program. SUMMARY OF KEY POINTS: A 12-year-old boy with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy, Gross Motor Function Classification System level II, participated in a 20-week running program. The 6-minute walk test and the 88-item and 66-item versions of the Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM) were administered at baseline and program completion. After completion of the program, the participant exceeded thresholds for minimally clinically important differences on the GMFM-66 total score and GMFM-88 Dimension D and E scores...

Damon Burn
An unusual case is presented of an 11-year-old girl presenting for treatment to a semirural private physical therapy practice, not specializing in pediatric care, following an avulsion fracture of the anterior inferior iliac spine. The patient presented initially non-weight-bearing, with little hip movement due to pain. Following treatment, the patient returned to preinjury status including return to full participation in netball. A review of the literature regarding healing and rehabilitation is described...
