Therapies that help children with cerebral palsy

Posted on December 13, 2014 1:08 pm under Medical Malpractice

Because cerebral palsy is a life-long condition, children with this illness need continuous medical care and support to live their lives as normally as they possibly can. To enhance their motor capabilities and improve their quality of life, children with cerebral palsy may benefit from these therapies:

  • Physical therapy – Involves exercises and training to improve your child’s flexibility, balance, strength, mobility, and motor skills
  • Occupational therapy – Improves your child’s ability to do normal, day-to-day tasks and helps him or her participate in activities that are meaningful
  • Speech therapy – Improves your child’s ability to speak and communicate

However, therapy can be expensive, especially for those parents whose child’s cerebral palsy has been the result of medical negligence. To seek the compensation you believe your child needs, consult with an attorney at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® about the possibility of filing a lawsuit against the party responsible.
