Spastic Paraplegic Cerebral Palsy (CP) involves both the lower limbs which effects balance and gait in children. These individuals are treated by physiotherapy with various means like Stretching, Strengthening, application of Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT), Task oriented approach and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) but there is no evidence on goal oriented physiotherapy program using various approaches for the treatment of spastic paraplegic CP children. Here we report a case of a 9-year-old boy diagnosed with spastic paraplegic CP, who underwent 5 months of Goal directed Physiotherapy Program. Documented improvements in muscle tone, balance and various parameters of gait reveal promising outcome. Hence we propose goal directed physiotherapy treatment might improve balance and gait in children with spastic paraplegic CP.
