[en] Assessed pain, anxiety, physical functioning, and cooperativeness in 32 children
with spastic cerebral palsy. This is the first study to assess children throughout
rehabilitation following selective posterior rhizotomy. Results of the Observational
Scale of Behavioral Distress and observer Liken ratings confirmed the
hypothesis that children's pain and anxiety decrease over time. Children's physical
functioning and cooperativeness improve over time. No significant correlation
was found between pain and changes in physical functioning. Cognitive
impairment, parental involvement, and children's pain behaviors explained 77%
and 56% of the variance in two forms of cooperativeness. Research and clinical
implications are discussed, and special considerations regarding pain assessment
and management in this population are addressed.
