Cerebral Palsy Treatment Options
Cerebral palsy is a wide-ranging medical condition involving impairment of motor skills as well as cognitive function due to abnormal brain development or brain injuries sustained while a young child. Although there is no cure for cerebral palsy, medical treatment may still be helpful or even necessary to manage some of the symptoms associated with this disorder. Unfortunately, for many families, finding ways to pay for this costly treatment is often a difficult task.

Treating Cerebral Palsy
While cerebral palsy currently does not have a cure, effective treatment can significantly reduce its effects on an individual’s life. Some of the most popular of these treatment options include:
- Drug therapy
- Surgical options
- Mechanical aids
These and other treatment options may be able to help alleviate some of the effects of cerebral palsy. However, as treatment is often required on a regular basis, its costs can quickly skyrocket.
If a negligent doctor or nurse has caused your child to develop cerebral palsy, you should not have to pay for the costs of treatment on your own. If you or someone you know is in this difficult position, contact a Kansas City cerebral palsy lawyer of the Driscoll Firm today at (800) 305-9800 to discuss your case with a qualified member of our legal team.
