Cerebral palsy is a medical term which describes a brain injury to or disability of the brain, typically affecting one of the regions that controls the muscles and coordination of certain body movements. Cerebral palsy can be caused by a brain injury before, during, or after childbirth. It can also occur to older children if they have suffered a head trauma or lack of oxygen.
Many things can cause cerebral palsy, including birth negligence, mistake, improper medical or nursing care, or a defective product.
