Treatment for Cerebral Palsy
Treating cerebral palsy is different depending on what type of cerebral palsy you have. While cerebral palsy is incurable, the goal in every case is to help the person with cerebral palsy live as independent a life as possible. Treatment may involve a combination of the following kinds of physicians, therapists and specialists:
- Pediatrician or physiatrist
- Pediatric neurologist
- Orthopedic surgeon
- Physical therapist
- Occupational therapist
- Speech-language pathologist
- Developmental therapist
- Recreational therapist
- Psychologist or psychiatrist
- Social worker
- Special education teacher
Medications may also be prescribed to address cerebral palsy symptoms. When medications are insufficient to relieve the tightness of muscles, orthopedic surgery may be required to lengthen the muscles and tendons. Surgery may also be required for individuals with spastic cerebral palsy, they may also develop bone abnormalities. In extreme cases, severing nerves causing spasms may be recommended.
