Brain Damage and Cerebral Palsy

The term “cerebral palsy” describes several different but closely related conditions. All of these conditions interfere with a person’s control over his or her muscles. Some people with cerebral palsy must also cope with related conditions such as seizures or psychological difficulties. Cerebral palsy often results from damage to the brain caused by trauma or exposure to a toxin; most cases occur during pregnancy or childbirth.
