University of Cape Town researchers recently published a new study in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation analyzing six Paralympic athletes with cerebral palsy (“CP”). The research suggests that while physical activity may not increase muscle mass on the side of the body affected by CP, long term exercise may increase the potential for improving body composition altered by the condition. “The combination of these findings has important implications for the involvement of children with CP in exercise as a management or rehabilitative tool,” the researchers note. They also added that the results will help other researchers understand how bone density and other physiological systems in the body respond to increased physical activity.
