What happens in a Cerebral Palsy physiotherapy assessment?

Kieran's leg and hip muscles are checked for flexibility, responsiveness and spasticity. The physiotherapist takes measures every year to see how the Cerebral Palsy affects his muscles. It can be helpful to watch this video with your child before their appointment, so they can see what is going to happen at their physiotherapy appointment and feel less anxious.
