What is cerebral palsy?

Friday, December 4, 2020

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is one the most common childhood disabilities. Cerebral means having
to do with the brain. Palsy means weakness or problems with using the muscles. Cerebral palsy affects the part of the brain that directs muscle movement.

As a result, the nerve signals between the brain and the muscles are disrupted, leading to problems with movement, posture and coordination as the child grows up. While some are severely affected, others have only minor disruptions.
