Cerebral Palcy Physiotherapy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affect movement and coordination. It is caused by damage to the developing brain, either before birth, during birth, or shortly after birth. CP can cause a wide range of symptoms, from mild to severe. Some of the most common symptoms include:
  • Muscle weakness or stiffness
  • Difficulty walking, running, or balancing
  • Poor coordination
  • Tremors
  • Difficulty speaking or swallowing
  • Seizures

  2. Enhancing Functionality: Physiotherapists work closely with individuals to develop customized treatment plans that address their unique needs. This can include exercises, stretches, and activities aimed at enhancing functional abilities.

  3. Pain Management: Many individuals with cerebral palsy experience pain and discomfort due to muscle imbalances and joint problems. Physiotherapy techniques can help alleviate pain and improve overall comfort.

  4. Preventing Complications: Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in preventing secondary complications associated with cerebral palsy, such as contractures and deformities. Early intervention is key to minimizing these issues.
