Cerebral palsy, Its Diagnosis and Proper


Brain is the main work station of the whole body. It is a vital system

in the whole body that functions as a coordinating centre of various

sensations and the activities of nerves. It’s because of the brain we

are able to walk, talk, see, smell and feel everything.

If the brain fails to perform its activities then the entire functional

system in our body starts to behave in an abnormal way. Sadly and

unfortunately it’s been seen that some human beings are born with

poor brain development which in science is named as Cerebral Palsy


Cerebral Palsy is expounded as a group of lifelong disorders of the

body movement and stance that limits all the normal activities in a

human being which occurs during the budding brain or new born


Diagnosis based on Symptoms and how such Patients should

be Cared:


It is very disheartening to find out that there is no such exact

diagnosis or tests to Cerebral Palsy. Diagnosing Cerebral Palsyis pretty

time consuming.

Sometimes an infant may be soon diagnosed with this disease right

after birth but in maximum cases the diagnosis process takes place

almost for two years after birth as per symptoms.

Symptoms include:


1.Language and speech disorder is a common symptom amongst

cerebral palsy patients.

2.People with CP have weak skeletons. They look different, thin and

pale than normal human being.

3.Disorder in sleeping habits and pain in muscles is another common

symptom of CP patients.

4.Difficulty in eating, chewing and swallowing food due to lack of

sensitivity inside the oral organs.

They also lack proper hearing, sensation, vision problem.

Proper Treatment and Cure:


It is mournful to say that there exist no proper treatment to CP but

surely this is somewhat preventable through various supportive

medical processes.

CP can partly be prevented through immunization of the child’s

mother and also by staying cautious to further head injuries.

CP can never be fully cured, however few supportive improved

medical experiments, medicines and surgery may result as a help to

individuals with CP.

•There are few therapies such as body therapy that includes various

physical exercises, therapy in proper talking habits or the way of


using and applying the mouth organs for speaking to improve he

communication skill of the child, seemed to help CP people. Few

medications like baclofen, diazepam and botulinum toxin helps to

release the stiffness in muscles.

•Surgeries are also performed sometimes to prevent muscle

contractions. Surgery includes stretching muscles and cutting down

highly active nerves.

In some other surgery the nerves of spinal cords are served to

decrease the spasticity in legs.

•Few recent mechanical invention of tools are also used to cure the

victims of CP.


•Specially designed braces for bones that helps stretching of the

muscle holding bones in definite positions that is equipped to a

computer with some special internal devices and a speech machine

that aids the CP individual to communicate which certainly acts

helpful in a broader way.

•Some other professional therapy can also assist a child to develop

and perform normal activities in day to day life.


•Unique educational programmes that are specially framed to help

individuals with disabilities in normal learning and for those who

are mentally retarded.

•Counselling is also done in some cases to accustom the CP child with

the normal habitats of the natural surroundings and also provide

mental support to the family that is dealing with such condition.

Though the rate of victims of Cerebral Palsy is mostly found amongst

the infants, it must be dealt with special care and guide regardless of

age. It’s on the basis of one’s immense patience and caring

responsibility towards a CP individual that can help them lead a

somewhat normal and happy life that seems worth living.
