Cerebral Palsy Treatment
Physiotherapy plays a central role in managing this condition, often from birth. If a problem is identified, our highly skilled Physiotherapists will assess the child and record and monitor their development.
As part of a tailored treatment plan, they will teach the child how to control their head movements and how to sit, roll, crawl and walk, encouraging normal motor development and function. Their treatment will also strive to prevent and inhibit abnormal reflexes and patterns of movement.
Physiotherapy and adaptive equipment are often the primary treatment for Cerebral Palsy. However, medication prescribed by your GP to help manage symptoms such as spasticity may be required.
