Abstract

Date Presented 4/1/2017

The investigators completed a systematic review to understand the effectiveness of constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) in children with spastic hemiplegic cerebral palsy. The selected randomized controlled trials indicated that CIMT yielded significant improvements in functional outcomes and outperformed most other therapeutic modalities.
