Comprehensive Care for Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture. It is the most common motor disability in childhood. At Dr. Srikanth Neuro, we are committed to providing comprehensive, multidisciplinary care to individuals with cerebral palsy, helping them achieve the best possible quality of life.

Understanding Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy is caused by abnormal brain development or damage to the developing brain that affects a person’s ability to control their muscles. The condition can vary widely in severity, affecting different parts of the body and causing a range of symptoms.

Types of Cerebral Palsy

  • Spastic Cerebral Palsy: Characterized by stiff muscles and awkward movements.
  • Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy: Involves uncontrolled movements.
  • Ataxic Cerebral Palsy: Results in poor balance and coordination.
  • Mixed Cerebral Palsy: A combination of symptoms from the different types.

Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy
