Study: Muscle Relaxant May Improve Muscle Tone in Children with Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy

Study: Muscle Relaxant May Improve Muscle Tone in Children with Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy

A new Swedish study published in the Journal of Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology suggests that baclofen, a muscle relaxant, delivered directly into the spinal fluid may decrease spasms and pain and improve muscle tone in children with dyskinetic cerebral palsy.  Researchers assessed the functional ability of 25 children averaging 11 years old before and after one year of treatment.  Improvements in daily life activities, fine motor function, and communication were reported.  The researchers believe the improvements were possible due to reduced muscle tone and decreased frequency of involuntary movements.
