An Open Letter to Caretakers and Therapists for Children with Diplegic CP

BCusick_OutsideProgressive GaitWays president and founder Beverly (Billi) Cusick writes:

“I’ve seen hundreds of families of children with diplegia, in consultation sessions in which I routinely undertake an orthopedic assessment and evaluate postural control, movement strategies, and existing orthoses. Common denominators have emerged that appear to operate to contribute to common problems of contracture development and recurrence, and to diminishing movement skills so often seen with advancing age in children with diplegia.

“I’ve composed the attached letter for caretakers and therapists of children with diplegia to bring them together in their understanding of the sources of many common musculoskeletal problems, and of the fundamental skills and strategies that are needed for effective remediation.”

Clinicians are welcome to download and share this letter with their colleagues, clients, and prescribing physicians.
