Abstract

No longer are only a limited number of treatments available to help children and their families deal with childhood hypertonia. It is now possible to provide a child with a treatment specific to his or her muscle tone problems and consequently meet the family's functional goals. The prospects can only improve over the next few years, given the level of interest exhibited by pediatric neuro- and orthopedic surgeons supported by pediatricians, pediatric physical and occupational therapists, pediatric neurologists, and pediatric physiatrists.
