New Study Suggests Electrical Stimuli may Reduce Scoliosis in Children with Severe Cerebral Palsy

New Study Suggests Electrical Stimuli may Reduce Scoliosis in Children with Severe Cerebral Palsy

A new study out of South Korea suggests that external electrical stimulus treatment may help reduce scoliosis and manage its impact in children with severe cerebral palsy. Published in the journal Disability and Rehabilitation, the pilot study included 11 children ages 3 to 15 that were unable to undergo surgical correction of their spines. The patients received two hour-long sessions of electrical pulses per day for three months. Researchers observed that after treatment 64% of the children achieved a 5-degree-or-more improvement in the curvature of their spines. While additional studies addressing the safety and efficacy of this type of treatment are needed, the study’s authors believe that electrical stimulus treatment “is effective in scoliosis in children with severe CP and it may improve trunk balance.”
