A STUDY TO FIND OUT EFFECTS OF NEURODEVELOPMENT THERAPY ON HEAD AND SEGMENTAL TRUNK CONTROL TRAINING IN CEREBRAL PALSY: AN INTERVENTIONAL STUDY

Rajesh Padnani, Sneha Chauhan

Abstract


Context: Neurodevelopmental treatments are an advanced therapeutic approach practiced by experienced occupational therapists for the rehabilitation of children with cerebral palsy. The primary challenge in children with cerebral palsy is gross motor dysfunction.

Aim: To find out effect of neurodevelopment therapy on head and segmental trunk control training in cerebral palsy.

Settings and Design: The interventional study was carried out in Shree K.K Sheth physiotherapy college, Rajkot.

Method and Material:  Neurodevelopment therapy (NDT) has been given to total 10 subjects (6 males and 4 females) with 2 to 6 years of age for treatments were scheduled for three- one-hour sessions per week for 3 months.

Stastical analysis: Data was analysed by using SPSS Version 20. Paired t- test was used to find out effect of neurodevelopment therapy on head and segmental trunk control training in cerebral palsy.

Results: Statistically is significant (p>0.05) effect of neurodevelopment therapy on head and segmental trunk control training in cerebral palsy.

Conclusion: There is significant effect of neurodevelopment therapy on head and segmental trunk control training in cerebral palsy. Therefore, neurodevelopment therapy can be used with conventional therapy on head and segmental trunk control training in cerebral palsy. 

Keywords: Cerebral Palsy (C.P), neurodevelopment therapy (NDT).
