Introduction: In Cerebral Palsy (CP) there is a muscle imbalance that over time affects each of the joints involved and, according to the interventions and ontological factors, the impact will be seen from development to function. Hip displacement is directly related to gross motor function determined by the Gross Motor Function Classification System (SCFMG) and can cause pain that is often difficult to control. Treatment for hip dislocation coxalgia in CP is diverse.
Case Presentation: Here we present the case of an adolescent with coxalgia in which the family rejected the surgical option and after the scarce response to the physiatric and pharmacological management with negative impact on the quality of life and on the burden to the primary caregiver, we opted for drive with radial shock waves.
Discussion: the response to this management was remarkable with remission of the picture during its surveillance at 6 months.
Cerebral palsy (CP) gives muscular imbalance affecting as time goes on each one of articulations; according to ontological the impact will be at developmental and function. Hip displacement is in direct relation with gross motor function delimited by the Gross Motor System Scale and can gives pain, in the most cases difficult to control. Treatment for hip pain secondary to PC is diverse. We present the case of an adolescent with hip pain who his family reject surgical option and, after lacked response to physiatric and pharmacologic methods plus negative impact in the quality of life and charge to caregiver, was treated with radial shockwave. The response was noticeable with remission during surveillance by 6 months.
