Cerebral palsy is an umbrella terminology used to express conditions characterized by lost or damaged motor function. It influences muscle control, tone & coordination as well as posture, balance, fine & gross motor skills & oral motor functioning.


Causes of Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy results from harm to the brain. It can appear from deformity in the course of the development of the brain during pregnancy, complications during birth, or as a result of neonatal illness after birth an issue I explored in a previous blog.


Different Types of Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy varies greatly between individuals & the manifestation of the condition differs depending on what area of the brain has been damaged.


Current Treatment Options

Current treatment centers on the mitigation of symptoms to make cerebral palsy more practicable. Hospitals including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, & speech & language therapists work with those children to improve muscle control & communication skills.
