Study: Walking Causes Lower Leg Fatigue in Children with Spastic Cerebral Palsy

A recent study published in the journal Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology has shown that when walking, children with moderate-to-severe spastic cerebral palsy experience increased lower leg muscle fatigue compared to children without the condition. Researchers analyzed 13 children with spastic cerebral palsy and 14 children with no motor impairments in a five minute walking test, which measured distance and average walking speed. Electrodes placed over certain groups of leg muscles allowed the researchers to observe muscle fatigue. “In these lower leg muscles, children with [cerebral palsy] show more signs of muscle fatigue than typically developing peers,” researchers wrote. This research was the first to address the impact of muscle fatigue on patients’ ability to walk.
