Promising steps ahead for teenagers with cerebral palsy

A new trial exercise programme for teenagers with cerebral palsy starts in London on 3 August. The programme will involve up to 60 young people aged 12-19.

Children’s charity Action Medical Research and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy Charitable Trust are jointly funding the three year study.

Estimates suggest around one in every 400 people has cerebral palsy in the UK1. They will experience lifelong problems with movement and coordination, which vary greatly from one child to another.
