Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a childhood disorder of the brain that affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills. It is caused by a non-progressive brain injury or malformation that occurs while the childs brain is under development. A CP affected person might not be able to walk, talk, eat, or move the way most people do. The primary deficits include: muscle tone abnormalities, influenced by position, posture and movement, impairment of balance and coordination, loss of selective motor control. The secondary musculoskeletal problems are muscle contractures and bony deformities.
