Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects the entire body, but specifically the central nervous system and the brain. It is one of the most common types of birth injuries, and occurs when there is an insufficient flow of oxygen to the baby’s brain during labor. There is no cure for cerebral palsy, and children who develop cerebral palsy struggle with cognitive impairment and limited motor control, function and muscle movement. Symptoms of cerebral palsy include:
- Difficulty hearing, speaking, or seeing
- Problems swallowing
- Lack of muscle control
- Spasticity (still or tight muscles)
- Walking with one foot dragging
- Walking on the toes
- Walking with a crouched or “scissored” gait
- Too stiff or too floppy muscle
