Cerebral Palsy in Adults Directory
Cerebral palsy is a lifelong condition that cannot be cured. However, treatment, including physical therapy and exercise, the use of antispasmodic medicines to relax muscles, and mechanical aids, can improve an affected person's capabilities, increasing motor function and independence. Many adults with cerebral palsy are able to live and care for themselves independently. Others may need assistance in caring for themselves, help with transportation, and special employment arrangements geared to their abilities. Although the brain injury that causes CP does not get worse over time, some of its effects can appear for the first time, change, or become more severe with age.
