Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture. CP is the most common motor disability in childhood. The Center for Disease Control estimates that an average of 1 in 303 children in the U.S. has cerebral palsy.
Buckfire & Buckfire P.C seek cases involving cerebral palsy injuries. This can be a very serious condition and can affect a child throughout his or her lifetime. There are occasions in which this injury could have been prevented and this can give rise to a child birth injury medical malpractice lawsuit.
Cerebral Palsy & The Benefits of Physical Therapy
Children who have cerebral palsy often use physical therapy as a treatment. Physical therapy refers to therapy which helps children that have problems with balance, coordination, muscle strength, and gross motor skills.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), “physical therapist focus on gross motor skills and functional mobility, including positioning; sitting; transitional movement such as sitting to standing; walking with or without assistive devices (such as walkers, crutches) and orthoses (braces) or prostheses (artificial limbs); wheelchair propulsion; transfers between the wheelchair and other surfaces such as a desk chair, toilet, or bath; negotiation of stairs, ramps, curbs, and elevators; and problem-solving skills for accessibility of public buildings.”
Physical therapists can often help children with birth injuries, developmental delays, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, torticollis, spina bifida, sports injuries, and other conditions.
