Abstract

Objective of this review was to collate information on the effectiveness of trunk targeted intervention on children with cerebral palsy (CP) on three functional outcomes that are gross motor function, trunk control and balance. A comprehensive search was conducted on online databases from inception to August 2021, using relevant keywords. A total of 15 randomized controlled trials which enrolled children with cerebral palsy under 18 years met the inclusion criteria. A significant improvement was seen in the trunk targeted training groups on applying trunk targeted interventions. Trunk targeted interventions improve gross motor function, trunk control as well as balance, hence should be incorporated in the conventional physical therapy program delivered to children with CP and would help in greater functional recovery.
