Driscoll Cerebral Palsy Therapy
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a condition that develops as a result of brain damage and for which there is, unfortunately, currently no cure. Thus, treating CP refers to mitigating the harmful effect of the secondary complications that the initial injury to the brain causes. The most widely used treatment plans include various therapies, with the goal of improving the affected person’s quality of life through increased control of motor skills, muscles, and speech.
Treatment options for CP can be very expensive, burdening a family who is already struggling with CP. If your child developed CP because of another person’s negligence, you may be able to hold them liable for your medical expenses and other costs associated with the injury.

Types of Therapy
CP may develop when a child suffers brain damage in their first three years, which greatly influences their physical development as they mature. In many cases, their muscles develop erratically, leading to complications, such as lack of motor control and difficulty speaking. A few of the therapies which can help a person with CP manage these hardships include:
These therapies will not only combat other harmful side effects of CP, such as dislocated joints and early onset arthritis, but may also may allow someone with CP to manage their condition and achieve a measure of independence.
