Cerebral Palsy is a group of disorders characterized by impairment of movement and/or impairment of other nerve functions. These disorders are caused by injuries to the brain that occur at or near at the time of birth. The incidence of cerebral palsy is approximately 2 to 4 individuals for every 1000 births.
Cerebral Palsy results from injury to the cerebrum (the largest portion of the brain, involved with higher mental faculties, sensations, and voluntary muscle activities). Other injuries can include Erb's Palsy when excessive force harms the child during delivery and there is a nerve damaged to the child's arm.
Often these injuries do not become apparent until months or even years after birth. If you suspect that your child's physical problems or learning disabilities are related to something that happened at birth, contact us so that we can appropriately investigate your case.
