cerebral palsy is a complicated disease and each

 Cerebral Palsy is a complicated disease and each patient suffers in a

different, unique only to them. Simply put, cerebral palsy or CP is a

condition where the control over the motor functions of a body is impaired

or lost to some extent.

 Its primary target is muscle coordination which in turn affects the overall

movement of an individual. Occurring during the brain development phase

of a child, CP is broadly considered as a neurological disorder.

 The main cause of the problem is misinformation in the brain or some sort

of non-progressive injury done to the brain.

symptoms the first and foremost symptom

Symptoms

The first and foremost symptom of Cerebral Palsy is physical impairment. The

affected regions, limbs, the intensity varies from individual to individual. Entire

limbs can be partially or fully affected and no two victims suffer the same list

problem.

This what makes this disease extremely unique and dangerous. The brains

control on the muscles is reduced, causing them to contract or expand

sporadically, without any prior notice. Many cases also show that the muscle

contractions force the limbs into certain awkward positions that cause a lot of

pain.

due to lack of muscle control the overall posture

Due to lack of muscle control, the overall posture of the body is also

affected, along with the proper sense of balance. The body is unable to

maintain balance and is succumbed to fall down at any time. Cerebral

Palsy is:

· Unique, in the sense that no two individuals face the same

complications

· Non-life threatening because only some part of the muscle is

affected that can be repaired with physiotherapy. Only a handful of

severe cases have ever been reported and most children go on to live a

healthy adulthood.

incurable since a part of the brain is affected

· Incurable since a part of the brain is affected which cannot be

healed. Therapeutic treatment can improve the coordination to some

extent, but will not be able to get the problem altogether.

· Non-progressive, i.e., it will not spread to other parts of the

brain, since it is a one-time injury.

· Not contagious and cannot be passed on to others.

· Manageable in many ways such as exercise, therapy, medication,

surgery and assistive technology.

people affected with cerebral palsy require

People affected with Cerebral Palsy require assistance and are

considered to be people with special needs. They are just impaired to

some extent and are completely healthy otherwise. The word “sp??ial

n???s” only refer to assistance in terms of movement only and not in any

other way.
