Effect of Spasticity on Gait Parameters and Physiological Cost Index in Patients with Spastic Cerebral Palsy

Dr. Aditi Hari Bhilwade, Dr. Suvarna Shyam Ganvir


Abstract: Purpose: To investigate if the effect of tonal abnormality in hamstring and TA muscles measured with Modified Tardieu Scale affects the spatial parameters of gait and Physiological Cost Index. Methods – The evaluation was carried out on 5 spastic cerebral palsy patients of age between 4 to 15 years. Measurements used were Physiological cost index, Gait parameters which included stride length, step length and walking speed and Modified Tardieu scale was used to measure spasticity of hamstring and TA muscles. Results - The gait parameters and physiological cost index relatively showed significantly lower values in the cerebral palsy children. Conclusion – The study concluded that tonal abnormality in lower limb may lower the values of gait parameters as well as physiological cost index in children with Cerebral palsy.
