Physical Therapy After Anti-spastic Treatment in Children With Cerebral Palsy
Physical Therapy With Versus Without Strength Training After Botulinum-toxin Treatment in Children With Cerebral Palsy

It is the primary purpose of this pilot study to investigate if physical therapy with strength training is better at improving muscle and gait function after anti-spastic treatment with Botulinum toxin compared to physical therapy without strength training in children with cerebral palsy. The investigators hypothesize that it is.
