Abstract

After an 8-month physical activity intervention in children with cerebral palsy, increases in femoral neck bone mineral content (BMC) (9.6%), volumetric bone mineral density (v BMD) (5.6%), and total proximal femur BMC (11.5%) were observed in the intervention group (n = 9) compared with control subjects (n = 9; femoral neck BMC, -5. 8%; v BMD, -6.3%; total proximal femur BMC, 3.5%).
