Treating and coping with cerebral palsy

Currently, 17 million people around the world are diagnosed with cerebral palsy and around 350 million people are related to a child or adult with the condition. Physicians and therapists’ methods of treating cerebral palsy, a movement organization disorder, include stretching short muscles, stimulating them during times when they are not working properly, and making use of mechanical interventions.

While there is a wide range of ways in which a person can be treated for and work on their cerebral palsy, some of the most common include:

  • Surgery
  • Medications, such as those used to control muscle movement and reduce spasticity
  • The use of braces and other aids
  • Speech therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Counseling
