What is cerebral palsy - new advances in treatment of cerebral palsy?

Milivoj Velickovic Perat1

Cerebral palsy is the most frequent motor impairment in childhood. In many countries, its prevalence is predicted to increase. There are an estimated 15 million people with cerebral palsy around the world and more than half of them are mentally retarded and one third have epilepsy. It should be seen that it is more than merely a motor disorder. There can be problems of development, perceptual-cognitive impairment, social and functional problems of daily living, emotional and behavioural problems, and many other difficulties. In addition to this early brain damage is not a synonym for Cerebral palsy.

Keywords: Cerebral palsy, motor disorder, epilepsy, mental retardation
