Pain among children with cerebral palsy
Although children diagnosed with cerebral palsy have a number of pain triggers (directly from the cerebral palsy, from sequelae and iatrogenic), pain is underdiagnosed. The gap between research and clinical practice is well-known as this group of patients demand special knowledge regarding monitoring of pain. This article presents various pain-monitoring methods. Combining different methods may improve pain assessment and thereby improve quality of life for children with cerebral palsy.
