Symptoms can range from minor to severe. This tragic disease makes muscle coordination and movement extremely difficult, resulting coordination difficulties, such as ataxia (failure to perform controlled movements because of inadequate muscle coordination), spasticity (over-active reflexes and tight or stiff muscles), a bent walk, the dragging of one leg or foot while walking, walking on tiptoes, and inconsistent muscle tone.
Although conditions can improve with time, there is no cure for Cerebral Palsy. Of course, this is a traumatic and overwhelming experience for a child. Some infants and children are born with the condition; however, there are the few but significant cases where Cerebral Palsy is directly brought on by a medical error. It can be the fault of the doctor or another delivery team member during the birth process.
