The Cerebral Palsy Diagnosis Information Page is intended to provide information on Cerebral Palsy and to help those with Cerebral Palsy find assistance paying for their medications.
According to the National Institutes of Health, the term cerebral palsy refers to any one of a number of neurological disorders that appear in infancy or early childhood and permanently affect body movement and muscle coordination but don't worsen over time. To provide the most accurate and current information on CP, NeedyMeds has partnered with United Cerebral Palsy (UCP), one of the country's oldest healthcare nonprofits and disability advocacy organizations, to host this page. Founded in 1949, UCP works through a network of nearly 80 affiliates helping to provide services from Early Intervention to adult employment and job placement services. Common treatments for cerebral palsy can include botox injections, the use of AFO's (splints or braces), physical and occupational therapy, baclofen, or surgeries to help╩spasticity. Because of the vast nature of cerebral palsy, these treatments above are not used for everyone.
