Introduction:

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a general name for a group of disorders caused to a fetus during pregnancy, baby during birth or during the first few years of life. The disorder is caused by brain damage or poor development of the regions of the brain that control motor function. This can result in damage to the limb muscles and can be accompanied by sensory, communicative, epileptic, or cognitive disorders. Cerebral palsy is considered to be the main cause of disability in children.
