Cerebral Palsy Treatment Options
Cerebral palsy patients primarily experience impairments to their motor control skills, although complications involving cognition are also possible. The condition is thankfully non-progressive but, in the case of most patients, still requires a lifetime of special care and treatment in order to assist the patient in overcoming or improving their physical limitations.
Ongoing research into the cause and treatment of cerebral palsy has lead to a number of innovative methods by which the physical impairments imposed by the condition can be alleviated. Thus, while there is no direct cure for cerebral palsy, there are many means by which a patient can mitigate its effects.
Treating Cerebral Palsy
Through extensive research and development, a number of treatment methods have been made available for cerebral palsy patients, such as the following:
- Physical therapy
- Drug therapy
- Surgical options
- Mechanical aids
As a non-curable condition, treatment for cerebral palsy is a lifelong effort that can place a high financial toll on a patient and their family. As such, it is often critical that fair compensation for these expenses be obtained in order for a victim of medical malpractice to have the quality of life they deserve.
