El Paso, TX. Chiropractor Dr. Alexander Jimenez discusses cerebral palsy. Often abbreviated as CP, it is a neurological movement disorder caused by a non-progressive brain injury that is believed to have occurred sometime during a child’s stages of brain development. Dr. Jimenez provides the following articles to educate and help the reader understand various aspects of cerebral palsy.
Every case of CP is unique to the individual. One person may have total paralysis and require constant care, while another with partial paralysis might have slight movement tremors but require little assistance. This is due to the type of injury and the timing of the injury to the developing brain.
CP affects body movement, muscle control, coordination, posture, and balance, among other gross motor skills. Although CP has no cure, various treatment options, including chiropractic care, can improve strength, mobility, and flexibility.
