Weight-Bearing Exercises May Promote Bone Density and Bone Growth in Children with Cerebral Palsy

Weight-Bearing Exercises May Promote Bone Density and Bone Growth in Children with Cerebral Palsy

In March 2017, a Korean study revealed that children with cerebral palsy who completed weight-bearing exercises for extended periods increased their bone mineral density and bone growth. In the study, children with cerebral palsy who were unable to stand were placed into two groups. Children in one group practiced weight-bearing standing exercises for two hours per day, five days per week. The second group of participants performed the same exercise program but for only twenty minutes per day, two or three times per week. Researchers concluded that bone mineral density and bone growth tended to increase in the children who performed weight-bearing exercises for longer periods of time.
