ABSTRACT Introduction: Cerebral palsy (CP) gives muscular imbalance affecting as time goes on each one of articulations; according to ontological the impact will be at developmental and function. Hip displacement is in direct relation with gross motor function delimited by the gross motor system scale and can gives pain, in the most cases difficult to control. Treatment for hip pain secondary to CP is diverse. Case report: We present the case of an adolescent with hip pain who his family reject surgical option and, after lacked response to physiatric and pharmacologic methods plus negative impact in the quality of life and work load of caregiver, was treated with radial shockwave. Discussion: The response was noticeable with remission during surveillance by six months. REFERENCES Porter D.
