Figure 1

Observed relationship between spasticity and gross motor function development. Initial Spasticity Total Score (minimal score: 0, maximum score: 12) per child (age 18 months) and the change in GMFM 66 score in one year (n = 50). Spearman's Rho Correlation is -0.28 (p = 0.05); Square Spearman's Rho = 0.08. Approximately 8% of the GMFM change score is explained by the Spasticity Total Score.
