abCerebral palsy is caused by damage to the motor control centers of brain and occurs in early ages. Resulting limits in movement and posture cause activity limitation such as palsy, weakness of muscles, coordination disorder, and involuntary movements.

While getting ill with cerebral palsy, disorders available in brain are detected in disorder of normal activity of muscles of limbs, head, neck and body.

The classical symptoms are spasticities, spasms, other involuntary movements (e.g. facial gestures), unsteady gait, problems with balance, and/or soft tissue findings consisting largely of decreased muscle mass. Detection of symptoms is based on the degree of brain damage and varies from weak, lightly-detected to severe cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy can be accompanied by epileptic seizure, learning disabilities and communication disorders. Sometimes it may be accompanied by hearing and visual impairments.

Children with cerebral palsy are often considered as intellectually disabled persons; however this always does not comply with reality. The relevant disease is not transferred via generation, it doesn’t progress and it is static. Cerebral palsy is not a main reason for person’s death, but it affects on life duration. Specific therapy for treatment does not exist.
