This new edition will grow to three volumes and significantly expand existing sections on medical management of children with cerebral palsy, research, education and therapies. The first volume will cover the cause of CP, the underlying pathology in the brain and the secondary pathologies in different tissues, such as muscle and bone. There are a fair number of controversies and new techniques, such as PET scans, that are getter attention to make earlier diagnosis. It is still not clear whether early diagnosis makes a long term difference. Epidemiology will also be discussed. The second volume will focus on general medical concerns related to CP on each of the medical specialties and the musculoskeletal section - which served as the main focus of the previous edition. This volume will be updated with an emphasis on gait disorders, spasticity, seizures and movement disorders. New research and techniques on the hip and spine areas will be added as well. The third and final volume will be an expanded and comprehensive resource on therapies. More detail on the latest outcome research and techniques will be provided along with sections on orthotics and novel treatments and techniques. This reference work will build on gaps within the first edition and continue to be the definitive guide for rehabilitation physicians, orthopedics, neurologists and therapists who treat children with CP.

• Details pathology and impact on the musculoskeletal system
• Covers research, therapy and patient management techniques
• Explores medical management of children with the disability
