By definition cerebral palsy is an umbrella term for group of disorders that affect movement, muscle tone, posture and coordination, caused by hypoxic injury to be developing brain . Though it is a non-progressive neurological condition the effect of the condition varies according to the area of the brain affected and changing motor impairment syndromes based on development of brain . It is the leading cause of motor and postural deformities in children. The primary motor disorders in children with CP are muscle tone abnormalities which lead to impairments in posture, movement, decreased strength, loss of selective motor control, balance and coordination. The secondary musculoskeletal problems are muscle contractures and bony deformities like scoliosis, pelvic obliquity, windswept hip deformity, hip subluxation/dislocation, excessive femoral anteversion, tibial torsion and ankle equinus which develop progressively in response to the primary deficits and causes further motor dysfunction and the need for orthopaedic surgery [3,4].
