El Paso, TX. Chiropractor, Dr. Alexander Jimenez discusses cerebral palsy. Dr. Jimenez provides the following collection of articles to educate as well as help the reader understand various aspects of cerebral palsy. Often abbreviated as CP, is a neurological movement disorder caused by a non-progressive brain injury which is believed to have occurred sometime during a child’s stages of brain development.
Every case of CP is unique to the individual. One person may have total paralysis and require constant care, while another with partial paralysis might have slight movement tremors but require little to no assistance. This is due in part by the type of injury and the timing of the injury to the developing brain.
CP affects body movement, muscle control and coordination, posture and balance, among other gross motor skills. Although CP has no cure, various treatment options, including chiropractic care, can be used to improve strength, mobility and flexibility.
