Physiotherapy for Cerebral Palsy: What to Expect

Physiotherapy for Cerebral Palsy: What to Expect

While cerebral palsy symptoms typically remain the same without intervention, you can improve function and quality of life with proper treatment. An experienced physiotherapist can help identify weak points and strategize solutions.

If your child or loved one has cerebral palsy, finding the right clinic might be the first step toward significant progress. 

At Advantage Spinal Dynamics & Innovative Medicine in Meridian, Idaho, our team of experienced medical practitioners offers a range of services to improve mobility and flexibility, including physiotherapy for patients with cerebral palsy. 

An overview of physiotherapy

When traditional medications and surgeries fail to yield results, it’s up to physiotherapists and occupational therapists to make life easier.

Physiotherapy is noninvasive and tailored to each patient. That means specialists must build relationships with their patients, get to know their limitations and struggles, carefully review their medical records, and suggest solutions accordingly.

Individual treatment plans may vary depending on the type of cerebral palsy, the severity, age and development, and the daily problems a patient encounters. For example, a child with mild cerebral palsy might have completely different needs than an adult seeking more autonomy.
