Abstract
Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects motor control and activities of daily living. This study aimed to evaluate pain and motor function and its relationship with quality of life in children and adolescents with Cerebral palsy. 40 children and adolescents with Cerebral palsy with age range of 3 to 18 years; (mean age 9, 8 + 4, 2) took part of this study. To investigate the pain, motor function and quality of life of these patients we used the scales Pediatric pain profile, Gross motor function classification system and The Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory. The presence of pain in children and adolescents with CP was 30%, and there was no significant correlation between pain and GMFCS. We found a significant correlation between motor function and general Quality of Life, motor function and the "physical aspect" dimension of Quality of Life and between pain and emotional aspect. This study indicated that although pain is a common impairment in children and adolescents with Cerebral Palsy, it could lead to a low Quality of life only in the emotional aspect domain. In addition, it seems that motor function level reduced quality of life only in the physical aspect domain.
