Cerebral palsy widespread in U.S.

1/19/2006
By The Beacon News
 

"More than 500,000 Americans have cerebral palsy, and the number of people it affects has remained essentially unchanged for the past 30 years despite advances in prevention and treatment, according to the United Cerebral Palsy Association.

Cerebral palsy is a chronic disorder that affects body movement and muscle coordination.

It is caused by a brain injury or abnormal brain development that occurs in the womb, during birth or within the first two to three years of life.

Most people with cerebral palsy experience uncontrolled reflex movements and muscle tightness that causes poor balance and coordination. Mental retardation, seizures and hearing problems are associated with cerebral palsy, and about 75 percent of those with cerebral palsy have some degree of cognitive impairment.

The disorder cannot be cured, but various treatments can help those with cerebral palsy improve their physical strength and prevent complications.
