Spasticity is a leading cause of morbidity in children with cerebral palsy (CP). 1 When cognitive functions are not impaired, it often represents the main driver of functional limitation and disability. 2 The natural history of motor function in spastic CP patients has been well described.

The principles of multi-disciplinary management are presented, in terms of therapist intervention, medication and surgery.
