What is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral Palsy, also known as Little's disease or static encephalopathy, is really a group of chronic disorders impairing control of movement that appear in the first few years of life. It is a condition that affects the nerves that regulate and control the body's muscles. The term cerebral refers to the brain's two halves, and palsy describes any disorder that impairs control of body movement. Faulty development or damage to motor areas in the brain disrupts the brain's ability to sufficiently control movement and posture. Those afflicted with Cerebral Palsy inevitably face very difficult medical, social and educational challenges. Symptoms of cerebral palsy vary in severity. From difficulty with fine motor tasks to trouble with maintaining balance and walking to involuntary movements, cerebral palsy symptoms vary from each person and can even change over time. Medical disorders like seizures or mental impairment may also be present. Currently there is no cure to Cerebral Palsy but scientific research continues to improve treatments and methods of prevention.

What is Erbs Palsy?
Erbs palsy, or Brachial Plexus Palsy, occurs when the brachial plexus, a network of nerves, is damaged. The brachial plexus conducts signals from the spine to the arm and hand, so when it is damaged a limp arm may result. Most often brachial plexus injuries happen during birth when excessive lateral traction is applied to the fetal neck region. Many babies with brachial plexus injuries are larger than average at birth, though any newborn can have this injury. About 1 or 2 babies in 1,000 suffer brachial plexus injuries at birth, and about 1 in 10 of these babies need treatment.

 


Unfortunately, no miracle treatment exists that can erase the symptoms of Cerebral Palsy. There are, however, many therapeutic options that can maximize the physical and mental potential of an afflicted child.

Physical therapy, drug therapy, and surgery are often used to treat Cerebral Palsy. Exercise and therapy or surgery plus therapy can help treat Erbs Palsy. Contact a Cerebral Palsy Lawyer here!

History of
Cerebral Palsy

The first medical descriptions written on an unknown disorder witnessed within children in the first years of their lives, was in 1860 by an English surgeon named William Little. This disorder caused stiff, spastic muscles in their legs and also their arms. These children had difficulty grasping objects, crawling, and walking, and the condition did not better or worsen, as they grew older. The condition now called spastic diplegia, was called Little for many years and is just one of the types of disorders now grouped under the term Cerebral Palsy.
