Survivors of pediatric acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) can experience muscle strength deficits, symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, and range of motion limitations months to years after treatment. A proactive physical therapy intervention, The Stoplight Program (SLP), was implemented at a single institution with the goal of preventing and minimizing these deficits in body function and activity limitations.
Children who completed the SLP during their ALL treatment tested within healthy norms for developmental age. In this follow-up study, we continued to measure their functioning 1½ to 2 years after treatment to evaluate the longer term impact of the SLP.
