The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a novel method of using reciprocal inhibition affects range of motion and spasticity on children with cerebral palsy. The results shows an improvement in spasticity in the hamstrings muscle group and quadriceps measured with Modified Ashworth and Modified Tardieu Scale. The passive ROM showed a suggestive trend towards statistically significance different in hamstrings and quadriceps. Individualized goals(GAS) related to function and mobility improved significantly throughout the intervention period.
