Swing Phase Adduction in Cerebral Palsy Diplegia: Correlation with Physical ExamCurtis Gale-Dyer, DO, Hank White, PT, PhD, Henry Iwinski, MDShriners Children Hospital in Lexington, KentuckyDepartment of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, University of Kentucky
Objective: To determine: 1) the amount of adduction in the beginning phase of the swing cycle in cerebral palsy diplegia using dynamic gait study data and 2) if there is a correlation with dynamic gait study data; specifically hip adduction in the beginning phase of the swing cycle and passive range of motion (PROM) testing of hip adductors and hamstrings.
Design: Retrospective study
Setting: Motion analysis laboratory
Participants: 494 patients who were diagnosed with cerebral palsy diplegia and had a gross motor function classification system (GMFCS) of 1-3 and who underwent a three-dimensional motion analysis study as part of their routine clinical care retrieved from the motion analysis lab’s database. Subjects also had no previous history of surgery to their hip adductors or hamstrings.
Interventions: Not applicable
Main outcome measures: Hip adduction at 60% of the gait cycle (determined from gait analysis data), PROM abduction of the hip with the hip and knee flexed, PROM abduction with the hip and knee extend, PROM popliteal angle, GMFCS, and age.
