What is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy is a general term describing a number of non-progressive, non-contagious neurological conditions that can cause physical and mental disability.Cerebral is the area of the brain that is affected and palsy is a disorder of movement. Cerebral palsy is generally diagnosed in infants and young children. Although cerebral palsy causes physical disability, the problem lies not in the muscles and nerves themselves, but rather in the parts of the brain that control them.
