Physical Therapy for Cerebral Palsy
There are many treatment options available to help children with cerebral palsy regain a degree of mobility and flexibility. These options often include a significant amount of physical therapy, which can help build both physical capabilities and confidence. However, these treatments can also prove particularly expensive for many families due to their long-term commitments and high cost.
If your child has developed cerebral palsy because of a doctor or nurse’s medical mistakes, we may be able to assist you with the process of filing for financial compensation to help you cover your costs.

How Physical Therapy Can Help
In conjunction with other treatment options, physical therapy can greatly help a child regain some of their lost flexibility and strength. In particular, these treatments may be able to provide some of the following benefits:
- Increased flexibility for muscles tightened by cerebral palsy
- Strengthening important muscle groups to compensate for mobility issues
- Building confidence with mobility disabilities
- Building confidence with mobility aid instruments
- Capitalizing on mobility improvements made from drugs or surgery
While physical therapy can be extremely useful, it can also prove very expensive. However, compensation may be available to help with these costs.
A child with cerebral palsy may need additional medical attention and care to improve their quality of life and restore some of their mobility.
