Coping With Cerebral Palsy In Virginia: Treatment Options For Your Child

Did you have hopes and plans for your child that he or she will never realize?  Did a birth injury to your little one cause cerebral palsy?  Are you left to figure out how to treat your child’s symptoms and maintain a great quality of life?

Cerebral Palsy Treament Options

Sadly, cerebral palsy is an incurable disorder, affecting those diagnosed with it for the entirety of their lives. This is one of the reasons that cerebral palsy can be so financially and emotionally draining for a family. However, there are a variety of treatment options available to those with cerebral palsy that can help them to manage the effects and symptoms.

While there is no cure for cerebral palsy, there are several treatment options that can be very helpful in managing its effects. Those suffering with cerebral palsy have issues with muscle control and mobility so treatment is aimed at aiding in those areas.  These treatment options include:

  • Therapy: Physical, occupational, speech, and behavioral
  • Drug Therapy: Including muscle relaxants, anticonvulsants, and Botox
  • Surgical Option: To remove selected nerves, lengthen muscles or tendons, or treat spinal curvatures
  • Mechanical Aids: Braces, wheelchairs, mobility aids, hearing and communication aids, writing aids, and specialized tools and utensils

Your child’s symptoms and the severity of his or her cerebral palsy will dictate what treatment is best. Many children are treated with a variety of methods to manage their symptoms.  But treatment can be expensive.  Your family can quickly face financial burdens, making it imperative that you seek compensation if another person is responsible for your child’s cerebral palsy.
