Abstract
Purpose: The current study was done To assess the correlation between spasticity, scoliosis and ventilatory function in hemiplegic children.
Subjects: Thirty hemiplegic children of both sexes with ages ranging from 6 to 10 years assigned into 2 groups (Group A represent (age from 6 to 8 years) and group B represent (age from 8 to 10 years)). Each group was assessed for degree of spasticity, Cobb’s angle and pulmonary function to find the correlation between the three variables.
Procedures: spasticity was assessed using modified ashworth scale, scoliosis was assessed by using cobb's angle and ventilatory function was assessed by using vitalograph alpha touch.
Results: there was a strong positive significant correlation between the Cobb’s angle and degree of spasticity with the mean difference (predictor- actual) of pulmonary function in hemiplegic children.
Conclusion: Spasticity, scoliosis and ventilatory function have a strong correlation to each others.

Key words: hemiplegia, spasticity, scoliosis and ventilatory function
