Everyone has a role in preventing Cerebral Palsy

When it comes to preventing Cerebral Palsy, several entities and individuals play a role in lowering the rate of birth injuries.After a child is diagnosed with this disease, parents have a myriad of questions. One of the first inquiries that a parent is likely to make is, “How did this happen to my child?”That’s a question with a multi-faceted, complex answer that differs for every child. As parents seek answers and solutions going forward, they are likely to ask, “How could this have been prevented?”Prevention is a topic of debate, but somewhat less so than how to treat and manage Cerebral Palsy when it occurs. Preventing Cerebral Palsy, however, is a paramount concern in the medical community; it requires the involvement of the medical and research communities, as well as the government. Additionally, parents can take specific measures that greatly reduce the chance that a child will have Cerebral Palsy.

Prevention is possible under some circumstances

It’s true that there are some cases of Cerebral Palsy that cannot be prevented. Others, however, can be curtailed by the efforts of parents, physicians, researchers and governments.Most of the talk surrounding Cerebral Palsy centers on what happens after a child receives a diagnosis; the topic of prevention seems to be discussed much less frequently. Too often, Cerebral Palsy is seen as a condition that cannot be prevented.

What is the treatment for Cerebral Palsy?

While therapy and adaptive equipment are the primary treatment protocol for Cerebral Palsy, an individual may also require drug therapy and surgical interventions. Some families, with caution and physician guidance, turn to complementary and alternative medicine for additional assistance.Although each medical specialist may have specific care goals related to their specialty and the individual’s unique condition, the overriding treatment goal for those with Cerebral Palsy is to:

  • Optimize mobility
  • Manage primary conditions
  • Control pain
  • Prevent and manage complications, associative conditions and co-mitigating factors
  • Maximize independence
  • Enhance social and peer interactions
  • Foster self-care
  • Optimize ability to communicate
  • Maximize learning potential
  • Provide quality of life

    Conventional, complementary and alternative medicine

    Conventional treatment methods involve systems, practices and products that have been researched, tested and approved by the medical community as acceptable forms of treatment. Complementary medicine differs from conventional as it has not yet been fully tested or approved, but may be under consideration. Complementary medicine, when used under doctor supervision, can be used as a complement to an existing treatment plan.There are risks involved in using complementary or alternative forms of medicine so anyone considering a CAM should consult with their doctor before engaging in these forms of treatment.
