Cerebral Palsy - A Physical Disability in Human Development

Cerebral palsy is a term that covers a set of neurological conditions that cause physical disability in human development. It affects brain and nervous system and mainly it is related to the brain or cerebrum. Children mostly develop this due to injuries to the brain after birth or during pregnancy. Actually, the brain injury leads to poor vision, speech problems, hearing and learning disabilities.

Symptoms

The person generally shows symptoms in the first three years of his/her life. And, a child with palsy has signs like:

* Achieving development milestones, like walking, crawling or talking later than his siblings and peers.

* Tries to crawl in an unusual way.

* Possess abnormal muscle tone, which refers to the person's automatic ability to tighten and relax muscle when needed.

* Has difficulty in sucking and feeding.

* Gets startled easily.

* Mostly gives special treatment to one side of the body over the other.

* Has under developed or over developed muscles or stiff movements.

* Possess ataxia.

* Have slow writing movements.

* Possess spastic paralysis.

* Bladder and bowel movement problems.

The experts have discovered that 1/10th of cerebral palsy cases are of oxygen deprivation, which occurred during birth. And, more specifically it happens in the first 6 months of pregnancy. Sometimes children develop Down syndrome that is also a condition, which, is caused due to delay in child development both physically and mentally. There is certain Treatment For Down Syndrome child with many medical attentions towards them.

There is no particular treatment for Down syndrome as it is based on individual's physical and intellectual needs, personal strength and limitations. Those who have Down syndrome are at greater health risk and require immediate care after birth and throughout childhood or perhaps long-term treatments throughout life.

If early intervention or involvement for cerebral palsy and Down syndrome is done then certain physical therapies are performed which can strengthen the muscles for basic motor skills.
