Facts about Cerebral Palsy
Did you know…..
Cerebral Palsy is a physical disability that affects movement and posture. It is an umbrella term that refers to a group of disorders affecting a person’s ability to move. It is a permanent life-long condition but generally does not worsen over time.
Motor impairment is the partial or total loss of function of a body part, usually a limb or limbs.
This may result in muscle weakness, poor stamina, lack of muscle control, or total paralysis.
Motor impairment is often evident in neurological conditions such a cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, stroke and multiple sclerosis.
