INTRODUCTION: Cerebral palsy (CP) describes a group of permanent disorders of the development of movement and posture, causing activity limitation, that are attributed to non-progressive disturbances that occurred in the developing fetal or infant brain. The motor disorder of cerebral palsy is often accompanied by disturbances of sensation, perception, cognition, communication, and behaviour by epilepsy, and by secondary musculoskeletal problems OBJECTIVE: Study to find out the correlation between the lateral flared out position of the rib cage and the age of cerebral palsy children.DESIGN: A descriptive correlation study designSETTING: Occupational Therapy department, Swami Vivekanand National Institute of Rehabilitation Training and Research, Olatpur, Odisha, 754010PARTICIPANTS: A group of 100 children aged between 6 month and 10 year with the diagnosis of cerebral palsy were included in this studyINTERVENTION: 100 subjects were selected for the study. Chest width of all subjects were measured by using sliding caliper at 10th rib and nipple level, as well as the difference between these two levels were measured. The difference of chest width was taken for data analysis. All the children were categorized based on the topographical classification and the correlation was formed out in each category of cerebral palsy children. DEPENDENT VARIABLE: chest width difference at the nipple level and 10th rib levelINSTRUMENT USED: Sliding caliper was used in this study as sliding caliper is considered as a more objective method for measuring chest width. (Meredith, knott,1937)RESULT: This study has shown that similarities and difference exist in chest width difference at the nipple level and 10th rib level with age and type of cerebral palsy children.In this study, the correlation between age of cerebral palsy children and chest width difference at the nipple level and 10th rib level, there was moderate correlation (r = .407) between them.CONCLUSION: The result of this study suggest that the lateral flared out position of rib cage is highly prevalent in quadriplegic type of cerebral palsy than other sub groups (diplegic and hemiplegic) It is concluded that early intervention in maintaining proper positing enhances co contraction, not only does it increase functional abilities but also limits the lateral flared out position of rib cage which can increase lung function.
