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.

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