thoughts on cerebral palsy life expectancy

Introduction

I am often asked how long can you live with cerebral palsy? I used to think that this was a one size fits all answer. But I am here to humbly say that further thought on this has led me to write this post

severe cerebral palsy life expectancy

There are several types of cerebral palsy  and I think that that can play a role in how long one will live despite having cerebral palsy; though I don’t have fact to back this up I would think severe cerebral palsy life expectancy would lead to a shorter lifespan as I assume there would be other health issues at play.

spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy life expectancy

I live every day with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and I can say with certainty that those of that have this diagnosis live a normal lifespan.

In conclusion

Lifespan is a thing for all of us regardless of cerebral palsy we could all be struck down by a sudden health issue
