a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood. Signs and symptoms vary among people. Often, symptoms include poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles, and tremors. There may be problems with sensation, vision, hearing, swallowing, and speaking. Often babies with cerebral palsy do not roll over, sit, crawl, or walk as early as other children their age.

or Erb–Duchenne palsy is a paralysis of the arm caused by injury to the upper group of the arm’s main nerves, specifically the severing of the upper trunk C5–C6 nerves. These form part of the brachial plexus, comprising the ventral rami of spinal nerves C5–C8 and thoracic nerve T1. These injuries arise most commonly, but not exclusively, from shoulder dystocia during a difficult birth.Depending on the nature of the damage, the paralysis can either resolve on its own over a period of months, necessitate rehabilitative therapy, or require surgery
Home exercises often continue for a long time to improve the child’s ability to use its affected arm.
Physical therapy helps prevent joint contractures and focuses on the elbow and forearm where flexion and extension is gently maintained.
The child’s affected arm may lose joint flexibility if the muscles are not regularly exercised.
Intermittent immobilization and positioning of the affected arm is recommended to prevent contractures.
In some cases, electrical stimulation has shown benefits.
Botox injections to the shoulder area help rebalance muscles, prevent contractures, and shoulder dislocations, and allow major functional improvements.
also known as “wryneck,” is a condition in which your baby’s head is tilted. The chin points to one shoulder, while the head tilts toward the opposite shoulder.

also known as trisomy 21, is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all, or part of a third copy of chromosome 21. It is typically associated with physical growth delays, characteristic facial features, and mild to moderate intellectual disability. The average IQ of a young adult with Down syndrome is 50, equivalent to the mental age of an 8- or 9-year-old child, but this can vary widely
includes activities and exercises that help build motor skills, increase muscle strength, and improve posture and balance.
Physical therapy is important, especially early in a child’s life, because physical abilities lay the foundation for other skills. The ability to turn over, crawl, and reach helps infants learn about the world around them and how to interact with it.
A physical therapist also can help a child with Down syndrome compensate for physical challenges, such as low muscle tone, in ways that avoid long-term problems. For example, a physical therapist might help a child establish an efficient walking pattern, rather than one that might lead to foot pain
also called developmental delays, is used to describe the condition where a child does not reach one of these stages at the expected age.
Difficulties could be in many areas:
|Poor muscle tone|
|Difficulty with motor planning|
|Sub-optimal brain function|
|Sub-optimal muscle function|
The therapist will determine why milestones are delayed, set treatment goals and develop a treatment plan in conjunction with the parents. In the initial assessment, any areas requiring further investigation will be highlighted.
