  • Over time, cerebral palsy is not exacerbated, because it is not progressive
    disease. Although cerebral palsy amazed muscle is not
    muscles and nerves are not the cause of the disease.

    baby
    Cerebral palsy is usually caused by injury or trauma of the head portion
    the brain that controls muscle movement, before birth, during delivery or
    immediately after their studies have shown
    that the natives of Asia, particularly South India and Sri Lanka, are particularly prone to cerebral palsy.
    High levels of melanin pigment in the skin contributes to gene mutations,
    accelerating the onset of the disease. Learn about the symptoms, possible causes and
    methods for the treatment of cerebral palsy.



    Symptoms of cerebral palsy

    baby
    Cerebral palsy is usually easy to be diagnosed at an early age,
    when the child is under three years old. In severe cases,
    the disease can be diagnosed in infancy (up to 3 months).
    Signs and symptoms of cerebral palsy are individual.

    However, you can select a number of typical
    symptoms of the disease:

    • Ataxia - coordinating the work of disorder
      muscles when performing elementary movementsCerebral palsy
    • Muscle spasticity - or spasm
      muscle tension and strain reflexes
    • Stepping walking not on the whole foot, and
      sock
    • Privolakivanie legs
    • Failure to maintain a balance
    • Uneven, staggering gait
    • Too busy or relaxed
      muscle tone
    • Some children with cerebral palsy develops as a result
      transferred to the early infectious diseases of the brain, for example,
      bacterial meningitis.
    • In children with congenital cerebral palsy in severe wrong
      posture, their body is too relaxed or, on the contrary, is stressful. bending
      spine, underdeveloped lower jaw, small head, etc. -. lo
      congenital defects related to this disease.
    • These symptoms as children get older can
      intensify or remain unchanged.
    • Such diseases and disorders like spasms
      convulsions, epilepsy, speech disorders, sensory
      disorders, mental retardation, learning disabilities and so forth., also
      called secondary symptoms are very common.
    • cerebral
      paralysis also occurs as a result of traumatic brain or the strongest
      psychological trauma.



    Causes of Cerebral Palsy

    The exact cause of infantile cerebral
    paralysis is not yet established, and although the doctors are discussing this issue for the past
    a few decades, to a conclusion they did not come. This defect
    not usually associated with a single disease, but a number
    disorders.

    The most common causes of cerebral palsy:

    • The probability of occurrence of cerebral palsy in
      Premature babies are much higher than that of high-grade.
    • This disease is particularly susceptible to
      children at birth asphyxia or having undergone a birth trauma.
    • If the baby does not cry after birth
      During the first five minutes of life or if left in the incubator for four
      weeks or more, or if there was a brain hemorrhage, the probability
      of infection is increased, and therefore, increases and the risk of cerebral palsy.
    • The twins or triplets low weight
      birth, making them vulnerable to the development of cerebral palsy.
    • The infection can be transmitted to a certain type
      from mother to child during and after childbirth, which can also lead to cerebral palsy.
    • The probability of occurrence of cerebral palsy increases in
      delivery time breech fetus as a result of the use of analgesics
      or rupture of amniotic membranes (which may cause of infection).
    • The probability of occurrence of cerebral palsy is higher in children,
      suffered a traumatic brain injury, meningitis or brain hemorrhage.
    • The exact cause of cerebral palsy in each
      particular case can not be established.



    Treatment

    cerebral paralysis

    Unfortunately, by cerebral palsy can not be fully
    cure, but therapy will improve the child's condition. Treatment
    ICP conducted primarily through physical and mental training
    functions, which can reduce the severity of neurologic defect. For
    improve muscle function using physical therapy and occupational therapy. Treatment
    in the early stages of the disease it helps to partially overcome the development defects
    It helps to learn how to perform the necessary actions and objectives. With proper treatment
    Cerebral palsy child can learn to live an almost normal life.

    Here are the possible
    treatment of cerebral palsy:

    • Speech therapy (sessions in speech therapy) - helps
      learn to control the muscles in the mouth, to deal with problems with chewing
      food and articulation of sounds.
    • Physiotherapy and occupational therapy - helps
      maximize the functions of the body and take the individual restrictions imposed
      a disease that in the future the patient was able to lead a more or less independent
      a life.
    • Drug treatment helps
      to control seizures, relieves muscle spasms and pain
    • The use of orthopedic devices,
      for example, staples
    • The use of wheelchairs
    • Surgical intervention to
      correction of anatomic deformations and relax tense muscles
    • The use of means of communication,
      for example, computers and speech synthesizers.
