Today I wanted to clarify what quadriplegic cerebral palsy is, and what it means for me as someone who has it. My understanding of quadriplegic cerebral palsy is that all four limbs are affected by cerebral palsy and in my case, because I have spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy all my muscles are spastic. In my individual case, my legs are more visibly affected than my arms, but officially my diagnosis is quadriplegic spastic cerebral palsy.
A common characteristic of spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy is muscle spasms. These muscle spasms are involuntary and I have discovered that by changing position of my life for example, and flexing my ankle this can sometimes help to stop a muscle spasm that is occurring in my leg.
Because muscle spasms don’t affect everyone who has cerebral palsy I am curious to know if muscle spasms impact you and how, if you can do to stop them once it started?
