Pediatric Case Study – Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Instability

Patient Challenge:

Sophia’s mother was concerned that Sophia always slouched severely and seemed to be in pain. She also always looked down, and could not make eye contact with those around her.

spinal instability, cerebral palsyCollier Resolution:

Practitioner Brian Lee cast Sophia sitting upright to maintain lumbar and kyphotic curves in the ideal position, and with appropriate scapular adduction and shoulder retraction. Secondarily, the goal was to maintain her cervical spine in extension.

Over the last 6 months, Mom has reported that Sophia seems happier, and is able to look up and see the world around her and, most importantly, make eye contact.

Collier Practitioner Brian Lee, CPO is CCS Paneled and bilingual in Spanish. You can read his bio here.

Practitioner Spotlight: Pediatric orthotic specialist Brian Lee

Certain pediatric orthopedic conditions require the knowledge and skill of a specialized pediatric orthotic specialist.

We address the concerns of the family as we care for our young patients and make sure they are fully informed about the care their child receives.

Our specialist care includes both injuries and congenital birth disorders which can include fractures, bone and joint disorders, spinal disorders, and neuromuscular disorders.
Brian holds clinics at 4 different California Children’s Services locations throughout the Bay Area.
“Working with kids is my favorite, probably because of their positive attitudes and almost constant smiles! Another benefit of working with CCS is the open communication. Being able to discuss treatment plans with each child’s PT creates a huge advantage for each patient’s progress. From TLSOs to arch supports I feel like I can make a positive difference in their little lives.” Brian Lee, CPO
