Cerebral palsy is a condition that hampers the brain which causes disabilities to the body functions and movements. It is a problem attributed towards the development of the brain or an injury to the brain. It is most common in children in age group less than three and can curtail their basic movements. Cerebral palsy causes seizures and reflex movements that a person cannot control. Due to this, the body activity is rendered useless or sometimes very difficult to perform even a minuscule movement. In medical terms, it is usually stated by doctors as the disease that affects the posture and movement. The main causes of a cerebral palsy are if the childbirth is premature, if there was no enough oxygen supply to the brain during birth and if there was a severe head injury in early stages. One of the areas where it affects is the hand, and a person might be having difficulty in controlling the normal movement of the arm for which they are designed for. There is no cure for such a condition, and only physiotherapy helps to an extent. Hand function training treatment consists of a set of physiotherapy exercises that focuses mainly on hand function grip and hand strength. Sometimes the physiotherapist goes in for traction and pressure treatments so that the essential functions can be got back to an extent. In case the condition is mild, and if the recovery chances are good, then surgeries to the hand are performed to rectify it. The patient would require all the emotional support that he needs when undergoing such treatment.
