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.
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
