Os dejo un nuevo “BESts” sobre la terapia acuática en niños con paralisis cerebral infantil, os dejo el pdf completo y un pequeño resumen en inglés, son términos sencillos, pero si no, siempre podéis usar el traductor del blog.
P (population/problem) Among children ages 0-12 years diagnosed with hemiplegic cerebral palsy
I (intervention) does aquatic therapy
O (outcome) improve function and/or decrease impairment?
Target Population: Children diagnosed with hemiplegic cerebral palsy, age 0-12 years.
Exclusion criteria: Children with a diagnosis of hemiplegia that does not also have a diagnosis of cerebral palsy. Children with significant cognitive delay who are unable to follow multi-step directions or to comply with recommendations. Children not ambulatory by age 3.
- It is recommended that aquatic therapy intervention be considered for children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy who demonstrate neurological and/or musculoskeletal impairments (Getz 2006 [1a], Hutzler 1998 [2b], Yaggie 2002 , Thorpe 2000 , Ruoti 1997 , Local Consensus ).
- It is recommended that aquatic therapy interventions be used with children with cerebral palsy who demonstrate endurance or energy deficits and who have goals related to improving those deficits (Hutzler 1998 [2b], Local Consensus ).
- There is insufficient evidence and a lack of consensus to make recommendations on the duration, frequency, intensity or strategy (theoretical model) used for aquatic therapy intervention.
- It is recommended that clinicians receive specialized training in aquatic therapy interventions prior to providing this to patients (Sova 2000 , Local Consensus ).
