is cerebral palsy a progressive disease?


to write this post, I did some research to make sure my information that I am providing is correct. I enjoy blog posts that challenge me either in my knowledge or how to present it in a way that’s understood. There was a time in my early days of blogging. When I made the mistake, of assuming that because I live and understand cerebral palsy. I forget that others may not have the same knowledge, based on years of practicality. From a life lived with cerebral palsy. Now I try to factor in the fact that everyone is in a different stage of life and how that relates to cerebral palsy.

Progressive Disease

To make sure I was clear on how to answer the question whether cerebral palsy is a progressive disease or not?
To be clear I am using the idea that a “ Progressive disease or progressive illness is a disease or physical ailment whose course in most cases is the worsening, growth, or spread of the disease. This may happen until death, serious debility, or organ failure occurs. Some progressive diseases can be halted and reversed by treatment.” Wikipedia
Cerebral palsy a progressive disease? Cerebral palsy is an umbrella term. That describes a condition that affects the muscles and movement. It describes the impact on one or both sides of the body. it also expresses how one or many limbs within the body are affected So the short answer, is that cerebral palsy is a stable condition. Usually caused by lack of oxygen to the brain before during or after birth.


so the short answer is cerebral palsy is stable and not a progressive disease

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
