This is perhaps one of the most common questions related to cerebral palsy out there.
Before I actually go about answering the question I would like to get a few definitions out of the way. The definitions come to you from http://www.differencebetween.com/
Condition – “The word condition is used in the sense of ‘state’ or ‘an illness or a medical problem However, the word condition, when used in the sense of ‘state,’ has both negative and positive connotations. The connotation depends on the context you use the word in.”
Disease – “the word disease is used in the sense of ‘sickness’. It is also used in the sense of ‘illness’. Disease also means a quality that is regarded as unfavourably affecting a person or a group of people.”
I think this is an area of much confusion for many folks, myself included. Although I knew the accurate answer in regards to cerebral palsy I wasn’t totally clear on the differences in the two terms.
In case you haven’t figured out what the answer is yet. The answer is that cerebral palsy is a condition. Generally it is a stable one at that. People with cerebral palsy don’t get worse, if their condition does worsen over time there can be assumed there are other issues at play here.
