Causes of Cerebral Palsy Difficult to Pinpoint
In cases of cerebral hypoxia or fetal distress, the doctor or medical professional must closely monitor the mother and the baby to determine if a Caesarian section (C-Section) is necessary. A delay in delivering the baby can cause brain damage.
Some of the possible causes for cerebral palsy include:
- Cerebral hypoxia - lack of oxygen to the brain
- Physical trauma (such as from forceps or vacuum extractors)
- Urinary tract infections or seizures in mother during pregnancy
- RH factors - incompatibility of mothers' blood and blood of baby
Timely Diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy Is Critical
Life altering disability can be minimized if early diagnosis is made. Babies from difficult pregnancies, premature births, or traumatic births should be seen by doctors more frequently for checkups so as to monitor any irregularity in the child's movement, muscle development, reflexes and general development. Parents or doctors sometimes notice that the baby exhibits hypotonic (loss or floppy) muscles. This may alert them to a potential case of Cerebral Palsy.
Getting the Medical Care Your Child Needs
Cerebral Palsy cannot be cured, but treatment options are available. Management of Cerebral Palsy is aimed at improving movement and preventing or surgically ameliorating fixed deformities.
