What’s the problem?
Cerebral palsy, although not curable, does not worsen over time. However, complications may arise related to abnormal muscle tone and other issues. Treatment aims to improve quality of life, enhance participation socially and academically in school, increase strength, facilitate personal hygiene, reduce disabilities, and prevent complications, such as slowed growth and joint problems.
Cerebral Palsy Treatment Options
The plan of care depends on the needs and condition of each child and may include:
- Physical therapy
- Orthotic devices
- Occupation therapy
- Speech therapy
- Hearing aids
- Eye glasses or eye surgery
In order to learn more about the cerebral palsy treatment that is right for your child you need to discuss the options with your local doctor, who can then determine what the needs of your child are, and which forms of treatment will best suit your child. A combination of medical treatment and therapy is often used in order to most benefit the child, and again your child’s doctor will discuss the combinations and options with you.
