CEREBRAL PALSY

 

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a disorder that affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills usually caused by brain damage before, or during a child’s birth, as well as in its developmental years. CP is a non-degenerative condition that affects about three children per 1,000 births, and currently there is no cure. The effects of CP can be as mild as a minor limp, but the worst cases usually include paralysis of the legs or hands, speech impairment, and sometimes mental retardation. However, with proper management, many are known to live successful lives with this condition, with a number of them now helping to spread awareness about how to live well with CP.
