, adults with CP are more likely to have bone and joint disorders. Refer to a specialist orthopaedic or musculoskeletal service if a bone or joint disorder is suspected and causing pain or affecting posture or function. These may include osteoarthritis, cervical instability or spondylosis (including athetosis), spinal deformity (including scoliosis, kyphosis and lordosis), subluxation of the hips, wrist and shoulders, biomechanical knee problems, and abnormalities of the foot structure.

, and the movements should be differentiated from tics, athetosis, conversion reaction, and hyperkinesis. Evidence of a recent group A streptococcal infection may be difficult or impossible to document because of the long latent period between the inciting streptococcal infection and the onset of chorea. Worsening of choreiform movements in a child with previous low-grade residual chorea may be hard to distinguish from a new attack of chorea.

43. Functions and dysfunctions of the basal ganglia in humans (PubMed)

Functions and dysfunctions of the basal ganglia in humans Involuntary movements and parkinsonism have been interesting and important topics in neurology since the last century. The development of anatomical and physiological studies of the neural circuitry of motor systems has encouraged the study of movement disorders by means of pathophysiology and brain imaging.Multichannel electromyography from affected muscles has generated objective and analytical data on chorea, ballism, athetosis

. In most studies, the instruments of assessment encompassed the domains of functions, body structure, and activity. The percentage of posterior root sections was close to 50%. Primary indications for SDR included ambulatory spastic diplegia, presence of spasticity that interfered with mobility, good strength of lower limbs and trunk muscles, no musculoskeletal deformities, dystonia, ataxia or athetosis, and good cognitive function. Postoperative physical therapy is part of SDR treatment protocols

Essential Tremors, Dystonia, Chorea, Dyskinesia, and Athetosis. Hypokinetic movement disorders refer to akinesia (lack of movement), hypokinesia (reduced amplitude of movements), bradykinesia (slow movement) and rigidity. In primary movement disorders, the abnormal movement is the primary manifestation of the disorder. In secondary movement disorders, the abnormal movement is a manifestation of another systemic or neurological disorder. The basal ganglia include the striatum (caudate. putamen, nucleus

The following clinical aspects were analyzed: severity of spasticity, occurrence of abnormal movements (dystonia/athetosis), language fluency, gait, and overall clinical condition. Follow-up ranged from 0.5 to 94 (mean: 31.6) months. Immediate improvement was noted in 10 patients, and five of them had sustained this improvement at the time of the last assessment.
