Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy is basically a neurological disorder. It is caused as a result of a non-progressive brain injury or brain malformation which occurs while the baby’s brain is still under development. The effect of cerebral palsy can be seen in the body movements and muscle coordination. However in patients with CP the type of dysfunction, the location of damage and limbs involved, along with the extent of impairment, varies from one person to another. CP can affect any part of the body including the arms, legs or the face. It can disable one, several, or all limbs.

A person with CP loses his ability to control his movements. Muscles may contract too much or too less or all at a time. They become stiff and are forced to be aligned in awkward positions. Also it is seen in many patients that the limbs tremble, shake or writhe due to fluctuating muscle contractions. Daily activities like walking, sitting and tying the laces become difficult for some people while others have difficulty in grabbing things. Other impairments like intellectual impairment, seizures, and vision or hearing difficulties may also be caused due to Cerebral Palsy. It is a non-life-threatening disease in which most children are expected to live through adulthood without much difficulty.
