A Glimpse into Cerebral Palsy
One of the most prevalent yet enigmatic disorders known in the medical world today is cerebral palsy, but hoping to get a glimpse into cerebral palsy will help people understand why it happens and what can be done to deal with it.
What is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy is generally a term that refers to a group of long-term or permanent disorders, which appear immediately during the first several years of a child’s life. It is a condition that hampers and affects the affected child’s ability to appropriately coordinate normal body movements. This happens because the muscles tend to be weaker, floppy, stiff, and rigid.
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.
