CP is an abbreviation of Cerebral Pares, the collective name for the disabilities that occur when the immature brain is affected by an injury or developmental disorder. The injury occurs sometime during the child’s first lifetime, for example while the child is still in the stomach, during childbirth or before reaching the age of two. This means that it can sometimes be difficult to point out the exact stage of the cause and reason why the child developed Cerebral Pares.
Palsy means paralysis and cerebral means that it comes from the brain. CP always leads to impaired muscle control. However, how much the child will be affected by the problems varies depending on the extent of the injury, placement in the brain and in which stage of the development process the injury occurred.
It can sometimes take a while before it is discovered that the baby is showing some symptoms that can be linked to Cerebral Pares. Also, depending on which part of the brain is damaged and at which time it occurred, the symptoms and the symptoms will differ. Common to all who suffer from Cerebral Palsy is that they get different degrees of impaired muscle control, which means that it can be difficult to determine if a newborn baby shows a deviating pattern of movement.
Below we describe three common group divisions of Cerebral Pares, but as mentioned, the symptoms may look very different and one can have several different kinds of CP.
The symptoms can be anything from barely noticeable to more extensive. The damage to the brain cannot be cured, but while the brain grows and develops, the consequences can change. With the right treatment, training and support, there are great opportunities to relieve the problems.
