  This case study shows the effectiveness of matrix Rhythm therapy for 13 month old girl with the pledge accident policy the am the aim was to find out the effectiveness of effectiveness of Physiotherapy for girl to improve gross motor function. Before starting physiotherapy treatment the girl had lots of impairments on gross motor function and GMFCS level was 3. On Denver developmental scale evaluation she was 8 month behind in two subgroups of gross motor and fine motor. MACS level was 3. CFCS level 1. The child still continues Physiotherapy session at the age of 7 years once a month. After receiving intensive Physiotherapy she improved in gross motor function specially sitting standing walking stair climbing and jumping. As well improvement was seen in balance and posture. The modified Ashworth scale, goniometry evaluation, GMFM-88, MACS, CFCS, Pediatric Berg balance scale were used as outcome measure. There was drastic improvement seen in GMFM SCORE after Matrix Rhythm therapy combined with traditional physiotherapy for this type of cerebral palsy.
