Description of disability: 

Cerebral palsy is a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood. Signs and symptoms vary among people. Often, symptoms include poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles, and tremors. There may be problems with sensation, vision, hearing, swallowing, and speaking. Often babies with cerebral palsy do not roll over, sit, crawl, or walk as early as other children of their age. Difficulty with the ability to think or reason and seizures each occurs in about one third of people with cerebral palsy. While the symptoms may get more noticeable over the first few years of life, the underlying problems do not worsen over time. Cerebral palsy is caused by abnormal development or damage to the parts of the brain that control movement, balance, and posture.

Treatment: 

There is no standard therapy that works for all children with cerebral palsy. Some of the therapies used to treat children with cerebral palsy include physical therapy, occupational therapy, botulinum toxin injections, speech therapy, behavioral therapy, drugs used to control seizures and muscle spasms, special braces or orthotics can compensate for muscle imbalance, splinting to improve muscle function, orthopedic surgery to correct contractures or improve function, counseling for emotional and psychological needs.

Post operative care: 

Regular follow-ups and an integrated approach to a child as mentioned above with cerebral palsy helps.
