Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a neurological and a group of motor disorders that affects muscle tone and motor skills in early childhood. CP is also known one of the most chronic childhood disability that cause permanently body movement and body co-ordination. It is a wide terminology and refers to a number of neurological disorders that appear during infancy or early childhood. Cerebral palsy as the name suggest affect a part of the brain and hence the muscles. It is a neurological disorder non progressive in nature and affect the milestones of the child. For a child it is really pathetic but more painful for the parents to see their child in such a poor condition. The blanket term for cerebral palsy is CP.

Cause of CP

The major cause of CP is brain injury and malformation within the uterus of the mother. So the cause of cerebral palsy can be intrapartum and partum period. It can be due to any congenital anomaly as well.

Signs and Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy

  • Low muscle tone
  • Balance and co-ordination problems
  • Difficulty with sucking or eating
  • Muscle spasms or feeling stiff
  • Communication difficulties

Types of cerebral palsy

  • Spastic cerebral palsy:- It is called spastic as the muscles stiffness causes movement difficulty leading.
  • Athetoid cerebral palsy:- It is the type of CP in which there is involuntary and uncontrolled movement of the muscles.
  • Ataxic cerebral palsy:- It is the type in which there is a problem with balance and depth perception.

In cerebral palsy since muscles are involved therefore even slight muscle movement like standing still for some time is difficult for the baby. It also affects other motor functions like breathing, bladder, bowel control, eating and talking etc.

Treatment

It is a very difficult disorder for the pediatric neuropysicians to treat but the child can be given symptomatic treatment and further degeneration of the physiology can be controlled. Treatment begins with overcoming developmental disorder or disabilities and the child is made to learn new techniques to cope up with the disabilities. Early intervention is very much required for arresting disease at initial stage. Treatment includes physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, psycho therapy, pharmacotherapy for controlling seizures that can further deteriorate the condition of the baby. Even sometimes pain therapy is given to the child to reduce the intensity of the pain.
