Risks to Avoid Cerebral Palsy
Medical science has ruled out that cerebral palsy was never a disease. It is a condition that developed inside the womb of the mother during pregnancy. It is a condition where the baby, for various reasons, is born with some damage in the brain which eventually causes problems with the body movements and muscle coordination. Cerebral palsy is not a progressive condition unlike some other neurological conditions or diseases.
Facts about Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy has been affecting children ever since there have been children. Though the condition is not very common, it is simply not a newly discovered disorder. The medical industry has started studying more about cerebral palsy in 1861. The initiative began when William John Little, an English orthopedics surgeon, published his research, which was the first to describe neurological problems in children diagnosed with spastic diplegia. Thus, up to this day, spastic diplegia is still often called Little’s Disease.
