Definition Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders characterized by loss of movement or loss of other nerve functions. These disorders are caused by injuries to the brain that occur during fetal development or near the time of birth.
Central Nervous System Cerebral palsy is caused by injury to the cerebrum (the largest portion of the brain, which is involved with higher mental faculties, sensations, and voluntary muscle activities). Initially cerebral palsy was thought to be related to birth asphyxia (strangulation during birth, which leads to lack of oxygen to the brain) and trauma, but in a study of 45,000 births it was shown that birth asphyxia is an uncommon cause of cerebral palsy. Affected brain areas receive lower levels of oxygen (

166. Cerebral Palsy And Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
In the case of cerebral palsy in children, HBO therapy is administered at 1.5 ATA Why does HBO therapy show promise in helping cerebral palsy patients?
Cerebral Palsy and HBO Therapy
Cerebral refers to the brain's two hemispheres, or halves that contain the higher nerve centers. Palsy refers to any condition marked by tremor or any disorder that impairs control of body movement. CP is not describing disorders in the muscles or in the nerves. The impairment stems from damage to the motor areas of the brain, which in turn cause the brain to poorly control movement of the body's muscles.
What is the Cause of CP?
Although it was once believed that birth complications were the most frequent cause of cerebral palsy, we now know that such complications account for just a fraction of the cases. A study by the Federal Government's National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) in the 1980s confirmed that birth complications accounted for probably less than 10 percent of the total cases of CP. This drastically altered medical theories about cerebral palsy. The NINDS study also confirmed that in most cases, no direct cause for CP could be found.
Types of Cerebral Palsy
There are four broad categories of cerebral palsy: spastic, athetoid, ataxic, and mixed forms that are defined by the type of movement disturbance disorder in each case. Spastic cerebral palsy affects 70 to 80 percent of patients. Patients who suffer from spastic cerebral palsy have muscles that are stiffly and permanently contracted. Doctors often describe the type of spastic cerebral palsy a patient has based on which limbs are affected.

Cerebral Palsy
In the 1860s, an English surgeon named William Little wrote the first medical descriptions of a puzzling disorder that struck children in the first years of life, causing stiff, spastic muscles in their legs and, to a lesser degree, their arms. These children had difficulty grasping objects, crawling, and walking. They did not get better as they grew up nor did they become worse. Their condition, which was called Little's disease for many years, is known as spastic diplegia. It is just one of several disorders that affect control of movement and are grouped together under the term cerebral palsy. Because it seems that many of these children were born following complicated deliveries, Little suggested their condition resulted from a lack of oxygen during birth. This oxygen shortage damaged sensitive brain tissues controlling movement, he proposed. But in 1897, the famous physician Sigmund Freud disagreed. Noting that children with cerebral palsy often had other problems such a mental retardation, visual disturbances, and seizures, Freud suggested that the disorder might sometimes have roots earlier in life, during the brain's development in the womb. "Difficult birth, in certain cases," he wrote, "is merely a symptom of deeper effects that influence the development of the fetus."

An Online Resource On Cerebral Palsy This site is intended to provide information on the associated conditions of cerebral palsy.
Cerebral Palsy can be a frustrating condition because of the various ways in which it manifests itself. There are several forms of cerebral palsy, such as spastic, athetoid, ataxic, or a mixture of these. While it is a condition that affects movement, posture and coordination, there can be associated conditions which are more likely to occur in children who have cerebral palsy. It is important to note that while certain conditions occur more frequently in children with cerebral palsy, every child is different and will not necessarily have any of the following:
Children with cerebral palsy may have difficulties with sleeping or toileting. Cerebral palsy can affect children’s speech and/or chewing and swallowing. Some children with cerebral palsy may develop epilepsy. Medication is often used to control this. Sometimes children with cerebral palsy have difficulty processing information about shapes, speed and space – this is often referred to as a visual or spatial perception difficulty. Some children with cerebral palsy may have learning difficulties or a specific learning difficulty – a particular difficulty with one particular kind of activity such as reading, drawing or mathematics.

yes no Cerebral Palsy is a non progressive disorder of the areas of the developing brain which control movement. Cerebral Palsy occurs in approximately 1 in every 400 births and causes can be multiple and complex. Recent studies suggest that cerebral palsy is mostly due to factors affecting the brain before birth. Known possible causes can include infection, difficult or premature birth, cerebral bleeds, infection or accident in early years and abnormal brain development. The effects of cerebral palsy vary with each individual. In some people, cerebral palsy is barely noticeable; others will be more severely affected. No two people will be affected in the same way. Cerebral Palsy is frequently categorised into three main types although many people will have a combination of these types:
  • Spasticity (stiff and tight muscles)
  • Athetoid or Dyskinetic (involuntary movements, change of tone in muscles from floppy to tense)

Forms of Cerebral Palsy
Spastic Diplegia Hemiplegia ... Bibliography Forms of Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral Palsy is a motor disorder appearing in children before the age of three years, due to damage of the brain before it has fully developed. The damage to the brain affects strictly the motor system, producing poor coordination, poor balance, or abnormal movement patterns. Children with Cerebral Palsy may also have other kinds of neurological disorders, such as epilepsy, mental retardation, learning disabilities, or attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder. Cerebral palsy is non-progressive, or static, meaning that it will not get better or worse over time. Most cases of cerebral palsy are congenital, or from birth; brain damage that occurs after the age 3 is usually diagnosed as stroke or traumatic brain injury. CP can usually be diagnosed before the age of 18 months. Physicians analyze delays in developmental motor milestones, such as reaching for toys, sitting and walking. Although CP is strictly a motor disorder, other medical problems are often associated with it. These include:

News, updates and resources for Educators and Parents The human brain is made of 3 main parts, the cerebrum which accounts for 85% of the brain, the cerebellum and the main stem. The cerebrum is responsible for the voluntary movements of the m uscles, thinking, communication and is also associated with the senses of touch, sight etc.. Damage to the cerebrum causes problems and the nomenclature attached to these problems is " cerebral Palsy". "Cerebral" means brain and "Palsy" refers to problem in muscle movement It is essentially associated with children and affects them in different ways. Some children could have severe muscular problems while others might encounter learning problems while still others might encounter speech problems.
Before the late 19th century there was no written documentation about cerebral palsy. A surgeon named William Little was the first who medically document this rather enigmatic disorder. He noticed that children in the first years of life encountered great difficulty in walking, crawling or holding objects. Initially called Little's disease, it is now called spastic diplegia and is grouped under the term "cerebral Palsy". Since this problem was in many cases an offshoot of complicated deliveries, the surgeon concluded that oxygen shortage during birth was in someway responsible for damage of brain tissues, which controlled movement.
