About Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is a medical condition caused by permanent brain damage that occurs before, during, or shortly after birth. The effect of Cerebral palsy, or CP, is characterized by a lack of muscle control and abnormal body movement. While it is not a progressive disease of the brain, the effects of cerebral palsy may change gradually over the years.
