Depending on the cause of cerebral palsy, other manifestation like tongue thrusting, seizures, jerky movements may be noted. Manifestation depend of area of the brain that was affected by anoxia, severity and neural cells regeneration.
It is believed that cerebral palsy should not happen in the first place if the baby is under care of health professionals. In an event where cerebral palsy happen in presence of medical professionals, attorneys see this as neglect, preventable cause and downfall in health care practice.
Cerebral palsy full recovery is not guaranteed and children with severe forms of cerebral palsy may never achieve milestones beyond school age. Again, the predictability of how they will recover depends on severity of the injury and chronological age. Simply said, there is no way of predicting how well or how far a child will progress.
Pointing fingers on health care professionals is a common thing and most of the times, justified. Attorneys exploit this time of adversity to sue health care systems and professionals. Other things may cause cerebral palsy, e.g. meningitis.
Therapy sessions by occupational therapists, physical therapists and recreational therapist may help build up basic milestones and ADL’s.
I hope you enjoyed.
