Preliminary report: the role of short-leg, tone-reducing casts as an adjunct to physical therapy of patients with cerebral palsy.

, and . Johns Hopkins Med J 145 (3): 112--114 (September 1979)


In the past two years, we have used specially constructed, short-leg casts as an adjunct to the therapy program for 99 patients with cerebral palsy. The casts provide tone reduction and increased stability, while allowing mobility, and have been useful in initiating weight-bearing activities and improvement of gait pattern.
