Abstract

In this edition, we conclude our year long series on gait analysis in cerebral palsy.  This comprehensive discussion has included a focus on observational gait analysis, the methods of quantitative gait analysis, and its application for clinical decision-making. This edition focuses on severe crouch gait, a common pathology in CP with increased knee flexion, progressive knee flexion contractures, and increased energy demands with increased patellar-femoral moments that can cause early degenerative changes. Another group of outstanding experts in CP discuss the surgical treatment of this common pathology.
