Cerebral Palsy

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cerebral palsy is one of the most common congenital childhood disorders. About 500,000 children and adults of all ages in the United States have the condition.

Cerebral palsy affects muscle control and coordination, so even simple movements are difficult. Other vital functions that also involve motor skills and muscles such as breathing, bladder, and bowel control, eating, and learning may also be impacted.
