Treatment for Cerebral Palsy
Currently, there is no known cure for cerebral palsy. Medical attention can help people that have cerebral palsy lead improved lives. Treatment may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, drugs (to control seizures, alleviate pain, relax muscle spasms), the use of Botox (to relax contracting muscles), surgery (to alleviate tight muscles or correct abnormalities in bone structures), braces, wheelchairs, walkers, and/or communication aids. These treatments do not actually help cure the condition, but rather can alleviate its symptoms.
