CEREBRAL PALSY 

Cerebral Palsy is a condition that impairs a person's ability to move, balance, and keep proper posture. This causes muscle impairments due to the disrupted connection between the brain and the muscles.

 

There are two areas in which CP can be characterized: “Hyper” or “Hypo”

Hyper: means that the muscles are extremely tight and stiff. 

Hypo: is when a child may have low muscle tone, meaning the muscles are too relaxed,

making everyday movements difficult and tiring.

 

Children with CP have a wide range of symptoms, including:

- Lack of motor-skills and inaccurate motor movements, which can make daily activities at home and school difficult.

- Cortical vision Impairment (CVI), which is a disorder caused by damage to the parts of the brain that process vision. There is a decreased visual response due to the neurological problem affecting the visual part of the brain. As a result, the stress of the child with CVI may heighten.

Children with Cortical Vision Impairment struggle with visual attention and recognition, limiting their ability to comprehend things at school.

 

Hearing, language, and speech impairments are all common issues with CP.

With our experience here at Brain Reconnection we found that children with Cerebral Palsy typically have troubles with the following reflexes:

- Moro

- Fear paralysis

- Leg cross flexion

- Spinal perez

- Spinal galant

- Foot tendon guard

Our Specialty

 

In this case we use a combination of:

 

- Reflex Integration to address the dysfunctional reflexes

- Hemispheric Integration to address the undeveloped area of the brain that needs the most support 

- Speech and Feeding therapy to address sucking, swallowing, speech and communication challenges

 

In addition to other cutting-edge techniques to get the best results.
