Cerebral Palsy is a lifetime medical condition that affects the nervous system. Developing in young children, babies or newborns, this terrible disease make it challenging to move the muscles the way most of us do. Coordination and reflexes are affected, and individuals may experience a hunched-over walk, dragging of the legs and feet, ataxia (difficulty performing precise movements because of poor muscle coordination), spasticity (hyperactive reflexes and inflexible muscles) and poor muscle tone. Most people with Cerebral Palsy must walk with the aid of braces or crutches.
