Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a brain injury that occurs due to abnormal brain development or damage that occurs while the brain is still developing.

Causes of Cerebral Palsy

It most commonly occurs during pregnancy or delivery and is often caused by reduced oxygen to the brain. Typically, the damage that occurs affects pathways in the brain related to movement and muscle control. As in all brain injuries, symptoms may vary.

Common Symptoms

Common symptoms of cerebral palsy may include poor coordination, poor balance, abnormal gait, stiff muscles, weak muscles and tremors. It can also affect vision, hearing, swallowing, speaking, sensation and cognitive abilities.
