Physiotherapy for Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy is a neurological condition which is caused through a lack of oxygen reaching a babies brain either, during pregnancy, at the time of birth or in the first year of life. Cerebral Palsy is thought to affect 1 in 500 children however it can vary greatly in its severity and its presenting symptoms. The condition primarily affects movement and co-ordination but can also affect mental capacity. Physiotherapy has a varying role depending on the symptoms caused by the disease.

Iqbal, Leeds

"My physio explained what had happened, gave me a clear timetable for my recovery and gave me exercises designed to get me back to work as soon as possible."

Steve, Osmondthorpe

"My wife can now walk around the house with a stick, can use the stairs and is more able to do things herself. We feel it has been a great help as I don’t think I could have coped alone."
