Cerebral palsy is a disorder that affects your muscle tone, movement and posture. It is caused by abnormal brain development or brain trauma during pregnancy, at birth or during infancy. Generally, the symptoms will begin during the first few years of a child’s life and are noticed when certain developmental milestones are delayed.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), cerebral palsy occurs in one in 303 children. While in some cases the disorder can be caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain during pregnancy, during or after birth, it can also be caused by the carelessness and negligence of medical professionals.
