CP & The Body

Speechless just keeps covering more topics. And that means the series keeps bringing up interesting questions. Like just how does the body with CP work? How can we best understand it? And how can we best support people with CP to achieve their goals – whether that is participating more actively in sports, or just being able to get around with less pain and challenge.

We hope you enjoy this week’s videos, where you’ll learn about the Gross Motor Classification system – the way doctors best define the nature of an individual’s CP – and about Gait Analysis, which is the latest and greatest in evaluating a person’s movement. And don’t forget to check out this great sled hockey story about our friends in the Wheelchair Sports Federation’s New York Sled Rangers.
