Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a disorder marked by impaired muscular mobility, including spasticity, crouch gait, or toe walking. Caused by brain damage at or before birth, the disorder can slow speech and learning processes as well as physical movement.

Gait Analysis

Some children with cerebral palsy benefit from a gait analysis prior to surgery in the HSS Motion Analysis Laboratory. Through studies performed before and after surgery, experts are able to refine treatment approaches and measure the success of surgical interventions.
