Cerebral Palsy Treatment

Because each child with cerebral palsy is unique, we determine the best and most appropriate treatment for each child. There are many treatments that can reduce the effects of CP and also help the child learn ways of adapting to the movement difficulties. The main form of treatment is outpatient therapy. The type and degree of the CP will determine which forms of therapy are most necessary.
