Cerebral palsy affects about 500,000 people in the United States. It’s also quite intricate and can range from mild to severe. It’s a disorder that affects the brain and causes motor deficiency, including partial or complete muscle paralysis. The damage usually happens before, during, or shortly after birth and can affect the child for his or her lifetime.

Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy

This condition is marked by spastic movements, as a person with cerebral palsy has a lack of muscle control. Additionally, muscle tone can vary between floppy and stiff, which could result in the use of some muscles over others. Cerebral palsy can also lead to missing developmental milestones and/ or intellectual disabilities. Coordination and control of the body may be limited, and some might experience difficulties with communications because of spastic muscle movements in the facial region. In severe cases, cerebral palsy can also affect breathing, eating, swallowing, and closing the mouth.

What Causes Cerebral Palsy?

Doctors aren’t entirely clear on how exactly an infant can develop cerebral palsy. Some scientists theorize it could be a maternal infection before delivery, while others believe brain injuries sustained as an infant could develop into cerebral palsy. It could also be a side effect if a child has been deprived of oxygen for too long, dropped, pulled out forcefully, endured a long labor, or had an instrument related injury. Many types of birth-related malpractice injuries can be enough to cause brain damage, which could then develop into cerebral palsy.

Long-Term Repercussions

Children who develop cerebral palsy will continue to need medical services and care likely through adulthood. It is a lifetime condition, and there is currently no cure for it. Some people can rely on orthopedic surgery and occupational therapy to help with daily living skills, and doctors may even prescribe medication to help with the disabilities. This lifetime of care will be expensive, however. If your child’s cerebral palsy was caused by the negligence or carelessness of a medical professional, he or she should pay for the cost of all future medical bills, rehabilitative care, and medication your child will need as the result of his or her actions.
