Cerebral Palsy

What is cerebral palsy

What is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral Palsy is a disease that affects….

  • Movement

  • Muscle Tone

  • Motor Skills


Causes

Causes

  • Cerebral Palsy is formed during pregnancy, during delivery, or shortly after

  • It is caused by damage to the brain


Types of cerebral palsy

Types of Cerebral Palsy

  • Ataxic Cerebral Palsy

  • Mixed Cerebral Palsy

  • Spastic Cerebral Palsy

  • Athetoid Cerebral Palsy


Ataxic cerebral palsy

Ataxic Cerebral Palsy

  • Ataxic Cerebral Palsy is caused by damage to the cerebellum

  • Symptoms of Ataxic include…

  • Poor balance

  • Coordination problems

  • Bad sense of depth coordination

  • This is the least common form of Cerebral Palsy


Mixed cerebral palsy

Mixed Cerebral Palsy

  • Mixed Cerebral Palsy is caused by the damage to the pyramidal and extra pyramidal parts of the brain

  • The symptoms are usually involved with movements u cannot control such as…

  • Drooling problems

  • Swallowing problems

  • Slurred speech

  • Mixed Cerebral Palsy is the second least common form of Cerebral Palsy


Athetoid cerebral palsy

Athetoid Cerebral Palsy

  • Athetoid Cerebral Palsy is caused by damage to the cerebellum also

  • Symptoms of Athetoid include….

  • Slurred speech

  • Drooling problems

  • Coordination problems

  • This is the second most common form of Cerebral Palsy

  • This type is very similar to Mixed Cerebral Palsy


Spastic cerebral palsy

Spastic Cerebral Palsy

  • Spastic Cerebral Palsy is the most common form of Cerebral Palsy

  • It is caused by damage to the brain’s motor cortex

  • Symptoms include…

  • Tight, weak muscles

  • Jerking motions


Treatment

Treatment

  • There are two major types of treatment for Cerebral Palsy

  • Stem Cell Therapy

  • Physical Therapy


Stem cell therapy

Stem Cell Therapy

  • Stem cell therapy requires no drugs or medications

  • 70% of people who use the Stem cell therapy show signs of improvement

  • This is an affective way to treat Cerebral Palsy


Physical therapy

Physical Therapy

  • Physical therapy helps on improving…

  • Motor skills

  • Flexibility

  • Strength

  • Mobility

  • Function

  • He called these births “difficult births”


Latest research

Latest Research

  • Researchers main goal is to treat and prevent the diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy

  • In order to prevent this disease, scientists look at the DNA pattern to find the problem

  • Scientists look for abnormal DNA patterns to find the problem
