Abstract

Children with diagnosis of leukemia are at risk for developingneuromuscular and musculoskeletal complications such as decreasedmuscle strength, impaired gross and fine motor performance, decreasedenergy expenditure, osteonecrosis, and osteoporosis. These secondarycomplications due to the medical interventions may lead to activitylimitations and participation restrictions in daily life experiences.However, few Authors suggest that if children participate in an individualizedphysical therapy exercise program, these limitations may be preventedor at least reduced. We evaluated the level of physical fitness onchildren with diagnosis of leukemia (C-LK) during the post-chemotherapyperiod.
