Cerebral Palsy Treatment Options
Cerebral palsy is a non-progressive medical condition that primarily affects one’s motor skills, although cognition and other traits may also be impacted. While the nature of this condition means that it does not worsen over time, those who develop cerebral palsy may still require significant medical care to help deal with the symptoms of their condition. Unfortunately, in many cases, the cost of this care can be prohibitively expensive. For this reason, those whose condition was caused by the mistakes of medical professionals may be entitled to compensation to help pay for their care.
If you or someone you know has a child who has developed cerebral palsy because of medical malpractice, you should not have to pay for the consequences by yourself.

Treating Cerebral Palsy
There is no cure for cerebral palsy, but in many cases, a range of treatment options can help reduce its impact on a patient’s life. Some of the most common methods of treating the symptoms of cerebral palsy include:
- Drug therapy
- Surgical options
- Mechanical aids
Which of these treatment options may be appropriate for an individual’s case depends on the nature and severity of his or her condition.
No family should be forced to pay for the costs of cerebral palsy treatment if their child’s condition was caused by someone else.
