Lindblad Pedersen Marianne , Mol Debes Nanette , Engel Høi-Hansen Christina , Johannesen Jesper

Introduction: Children with cerebral palsy (CP) has an increased risk of bone fragility, low areal bone mineral density (aBMD) and low trauma fractures leading to increased pain experience, decreased mobility and lower quality of life.Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of low BMD among children with cerebral palsy in Denmark across the spectrum of gross motor function scale (GMFCS) of I-V and ...
