Treadmill Training for Cerebral Palsy Patients


"Cerebral palsy is a neurological condition that affects movement and muscle coordination. It is caused by damage to brain before, during or shortly after birth. Children may show signs of slow motor development, weak muscle tone, problems with fine motor tasks and difficulty walking or keeping balance.

According to the National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities, about 500,000 Americans have cerebral palsy. Roughly 8,000 infants and 1,500 preschoolers are diagnosed with the condition each year. Seventy percent of cases occur before birth (congenital cerebral palsy) and are caused by a disruption in the normal development of a part of the brain. Infection during pregnancy and poor oxygen supply to the fetus are possible causes of congenital cerebral palsy. In many cases, the cause is unknown. About 20 percent of children acquire cerebral palsy from birth complications, like asphyxia during labor and delivery. Ten percent of cases are acquired shortly after birth from some type of damage to the infant brain, like brain infection or head trauma."
