Linking Muscle Structure and Function in Individuals with Cerebral Palsy: Implications for Exercise Prescription Across the Lifespan
Using the ICF model as a theoretical framework, this lecture will describe the relationships between muscle structure and function across the lifespan in individuals with cerebral palsy (CP). Structural and functional changes in muscle will be linked with activity and participation, with an emphasis on gait and mobility. The speaker will place an emphasis on treatment strategies with established criteria for dosing—including frequency, volume, duration, intensity, and movement speed —with a focus on structural and functional changes of muscle in CP.
