ABSTRACT
The article discusses key issues concerning the occurrence of spinal deformity in children with impaired neurologic control and problems with motor control involving the trunk muscles. This lack of control causes the collapse of the growing spine of these children. This collapse is most commonly caused by spasticity in children with the quadriplegic pattern of cerebral palsy.
