What Is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a term used to describe a group of disorders affecting body movement and muscle co-ordination. The medical definition of CP is “a non-progressive but not unchanging disorder of movement and/or posture, due to an insult or anomaly of the developing brain.“ Cerebral Palsy is a condition that affects the part of the brain that controls muscle coordination and movement. The damage to the motor area of the brain prevents the individual from maintaining adequate control of muscle movement and/or posture.
