What is Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral Palsy is a physical disability that affects movement and posture.
Cerebral palsy (CP) 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. It is due to damage to the developing brain either during pregnancy or shortly after birth.
People with cerebral palsy are affected in different ways. It can affect them through their body movement, muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture and/or balance.
