It is the most common childhood disability. Symptoms typically appear during the first months or years of life and vary greatly from one child to another. The condition may affect the whole body (quadriplegia), lower half of the body (diplegia), one side of the body (hemiplegia), or just one limb (monoplegia). Most patients experience increased muscle tone, which manifests as muscle stiffness, or spasticity; while a small number of children present with floppiness instead. Some patients lack balance, coordination, while others experience tremors or jerky involuntary movements. Various combinations of these symptoms also exist. The degree of severity also varies - some people require assistance in almost all daily activities, while others can be more or less independent. Cerebral palsy is a non-progressive disease, meaning it does not worsen with age, but some symptoms may become more apparent as the child grows. Cerebral palsy can lead to a number of associated conditions, including: epilepsy; musculoskeletal problems; intellectual disability; feeding problems such as difficulty sucking, chewing, swallowing and excessive drooling; speech delay and difficulties, or impaired vision or hearing. There are many possible causes, and in each case, the cause is often multifactorial. The risk is highest during pregnancy. - Prenatal risk factors include gene or chromosomal mutations, premature birth or low birth weight, multiple pregnancy, maternal infections, intrauterine infections, exposure to toxins, and conditions that may cause bleeding in the third trimester such as preeclampsia and placental abnormalities. - The most common perinatal cause is the lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain, known as birth asphyxia. Problems linked to complicated labor or delivery are also associated with higher risk. - Postnatal causes include accident, head trauma, and infections such as meningitis or encephalitis. Diagnosis is based on physical exams and brain imaging studies, which can detect areas of damage or abnormal development. An electroencephalogram may be performed if epilepsy is suspected. A family history may indicate a genetic cause. There is no cure for cerebral palsy but treatments may help relieve symptoms and improve quality of life. A number of medications are available to treat muscle spasticity, involuntary movements; to reduce drooling, or prevent seizures. Various therapies can help strengthen muscles, manage daily activities, develop speech, overcome feeding difficulties, and improve overall health and fitness. Surgical management options include: selective dorsal rhizotomy to sever nerve roots that cause spasticity; deep brain stimulation to treat tremors, various orthopedic procedures to fix musculoskeletal problems; and strabismus repair.

An Early Diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy Changes Lives


Diagnosing cerebral palsy (CP) at an early age is important for the long-term outcome of children and their families. Our Early Detection Initiative is lowering the age of detection from 2 years to 6 months so that babies can get the interventions and supports they need when it matters most.

Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy | Gillette Children's


Cerebral palsy (CP) symptoms include problems with muscle tone, movement, balance or coordination. In some infants, problems are evident soon after birth. In others, diagnosis comes in later infancy or toddlerhood. Learn more: 🤍 “In infants who are developing typically, we often see symmetric use of the arms and the legs,” says Marcie Ward, MD, a pediatric rehabilitation medicine physician at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. “That’s what we would typically expect to see. In a child who may be exhibiting signs or symptoms of cerebral palsy, may show us asymmetry in their arm movements, in their hand movements, or in their leg movements.” Cerebral palsy symptoms in babies might include: stiff limbs or low muscle tone; inability to use one side of the body; or asymmetry (when one side of the body moves differently than the other side). As a child grows, he or she might show additional symptoms of cerebral palsy such as: inability to hold up her head on her own; inability to sit on his own; difficulty holding and using objects; clumsiness and frequent falling; losing previously acquired skills; or toe walking. Tim Feyma, MD, is a pediatric neurologist at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. It’s important to see a team for the diagnosis of CP because lots of things can look like CP but aren’t CP,” says Feyma. “It’s very important to make sure that we’ve settled what the diagnosis is.” “There are many reasons for children to exhibit delays in their development,” says Ward. “It’s important for them to get in with their primary care provider, to have those motor delays investigated. And if the primary care provider feels that it’s appropriate, then to refer to a center that can take a really good look at their child and give them some advice on how to move forward.” “The most common concern we hear in the Motor Delay Clinic is parents realize that there is something that’s not right,” says Feyma. “They need to make sense of that so we can begin to help the child. At the end of the day, talk about diagnosis, at the end of the day parents just want to know what’s next and where do we go from here.” 0:00 What are the symptoms of Cerebral Palsy? 0:42 Cerebral Palsy Symptoms in Babies 03:07 Motor Delay Clinic

About Cerebral Palsy and VDRO Surgery to Improve Mobility


Children growing up with cerebral palsy often develop an involuntary tightness in the muscles around their hips. This video explains how that occurs and how a surgery called femoral varus derotational osteotomy, or VDRO surgery, can help improve mobility for children with cerebral palsy. Surgeons at Children’s Hospital Colorado can perform VRDO surgery to address the spasticity that can occur due to pediatric cerebral palsy. This cerebral palsy surgery can help to greatly increase mobility and range of motion in the hips, which translates to an improvement in quality of life. Watch the video to learn about the process of the VRDO surgery, risks, benefits and recovery time.

Charlie’s Cerebral Palsy Early Intervention | Cincinnati Children's


🤍cincinnatichildrens.org/service/o/ot-pt Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common physical disability in children, affecting 1 in 323 babies. It can be detected as early as 3-months-old, and that early detection is very beneficial in treatment. The Infant Motor Evaluation Clinic (IMEC) at Cincinnati Children’s provides a comprehensive evaluation of infants who have issues with motor development. Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy focuses on early intervention and uses CP-specific intense motor-learning and task specific approaches to improve a child’s outcome and quality of life. Charlie is one of many IMEC patients at Cincinnati Children’s who demonstrates the success that can be achieved with early Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy. “Cerebral Palsy, because it is a motor disorder, it affects a child’s ability to move,” said Gretchen Mueller, an OT/PT High Risk Team Lead at Cincinnati Children’s. “Our job as OT’s and PT’s is to use very CP-specific interventions when the child is diagnosed with CP to improve their motor function and get them as independent as possible. Our goal is when we do identify that they have what we call these ‘infant detectable risks’ for CP that we get them referred to our Infant Motor Evaluation Clinic.” “When Charlie turned about 5-months-old, we started to notice that he just wasn’t meeting developmental milestones like we had seen with our two previous children, so we asked his pediatrician who said ‘all kids develop at their own rate at their own times’ but something in my mom gut told me something is not right,” said Chelsea Wirtz, Charlie’s mom. “The IMEC Clinic is critical in this process for diagnosing CP early,” Mueller said. “The patients are really thriving, not only goals like walking but everyday skills, feeding skills and just being able to interact and play with their peers. You are seeing them meet those milestones quicker.” “Just to see those results, that’s been reassuring to us that he’s going to be OK,” Wirtz said. “And for us, that’s all we want.” For more information go to: 🤍cincinnatichildrens.org/service/o/ot-pt

What Causes Cerebral Palsy?


It’s a common misconception about what causes cerebral palsy, that Cerebral Palsy, or “CP” for short, is a single condition. Actually, it’s a group of neurological disorders that target a person’s mobility and their ability to maintain normal posture and balance. There is no cure for CP, and it tends to be a lifelong condition, although its severity can range from mild to severe. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more commonly referred to as the CDC, states that cerebral palsy is the most common motor disability affecting children, impacting one in every 345 children. According to the Cerebral Palsy Foundation 17 million people across the world have cerebral palsy and 50% of them live with chronic pain. Generally speaking, cerebral palsy is caused by brain damage or abnormal brain development. Ninety percent of all CP cases occur before birth or during delivery, which is classified as “congenital cerebral palsy.” The remaining percentage occurs 28 days or more after birth, categorized as “acquired cerebral palsy.” According to the CDC, congenital cerebral palsy accounts for the vast majority of all CP conditions, between 85% and 90%. While doctors do not know the specific cause of most congenital forms of CP, some children may be at a higher risk for developing congenital CP than others. Remember, it’s not possible to diagnose cerebral palsy without fully understanding what happened to your child before, during, and in the months following birth. That’s why it’s essential to monitor your child’s development over time to look for any indications of CP. A proper diagnosis is critical to protecting your child’s future. You can find abundant resources to help you learn more about the causes of Cerebral Palsy, treatments, family forums, parent support groups, and more at birthinjurycenter.org/cerebral-palsy/causes/
