Cerebral palsy is an incurable neuromuscular disorder that results in stiff or weak muscles, lack of coordination and dexterity, seizures or trembles, and more. It is caused by damage to the portions of the brain which control muscular function. In birth, cerebral palsy may be caused by hypoxia or a lack of blood to the brain. If a child is not delivered quickly or the umbilical cord becomes tangled or compressed, it can affect oxygen flow to the brain, causing brain damage.
