Cerebral palsy of the upper limb
Cerebral palsy is a neurological condition caused by a problem in the area of your brain that controls your muscles.
It is caused by abnormal brain development or brain damage at birth or shortly after birth.
Symptoms of cerebral palsy can include difficulties controlling muscles or mobility issues and balance and coordination problems. Development of a child with cerebral palsy may be slower and many patients have learning disabilities. See your GP if you have any concerns about your child’s development. You may be referred to a specialist for further tests, diagnosis and treatment.
