Study: Music Therapy Improves Upper Body Function in Children with Cerebral Palsy

Study: Music Therapy Improves Upper Body Function in Children with Cerebral Palsy

After 16 weeks of live music therapy, children with cerebral palsy participating in a study showed significant improvements in locomotor function, according to Spanish researchers. In the study, participants played small percussion instruments—a Spanish guitar, a keyboard, and drums, along with the therapists. Certain types of movements and skills, including hand movements, sensorimotor skills, load-bearing, head movement, and leg position improved after the therapy, researchers found. “Music therapy is a useful tool in rehabilitation and its positive effects remain four months after completing the treatment,” they concluded.

Wear Green This Weekend to Support Those with Cerebral Palsy!

Wear Green This Weekend to Support Those with Cerebral Palsy!

Sunday, March 25th is National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day! Cerebral palsy is a permanent condition describing a combination of physical and mental disabilities due to damage or abnormalities in the brain. It is often caused by a lack of oxygen and blood flow to the brain in the moments prior to birth or shortly after delivery. The lifetime treatment and care for an individual with CP is estimated to cost over $1 million. Wearing green on National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day will raise awareness about cerebral palsy in your community, which helps organizations receive the funding they require to give families affected by CP necessary resources and care. So remember to wear your green on Sunday and tell everyone why!

Wear Green This March to Celebrate Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month!

Wear Green This March to Celebrate Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month!

Green is the color of life; associated with growth, the environment, and of course, St. Patrick’s Day. You may, however, be surprised to learn that wearing green in March is also associated with supporting Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month.

Cerebral palsy is a permanent condition caused by brain damage—often resulting from a lack of oxygen and blood flow to a baby’s brain during labor and delivery (also known as HIE—hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy). Each year, approximately 10,000 babies are diagnosed with the condition and another 1,500 pre-school-aged children are diagnosed. Cerebral palsy affects movement, balance and posture, and in severe cases, vision, speech, and other functions. Although injury to the brain is permanent, the condition is non-progressive and can sometimes be improved with therapy.

This month, wear green to support those living with cerebral palsy. And if your child is affected by cerebral palsy as a result of a birth injury, please call our lawyers to discuss your situation at (877) 262-9767.

March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month

March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month

Wearing green in March isn’t limited to just St. Patrick’s Day celebrations—don the hue all month long in support of Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month! Cerebral palsy is a condition caused by brain damage—often resulting from a lack of oxygen and blood flow to a baby’s brain during labor and delivery (also known as HIE—hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy). Cerebral palsy can affect both motor coordination and cognition, and its effects range from mild to severe. While there currently is no cure for cerebral palsy, many of the roughly 764,000 children and adults with the condition seek therapy to help manage its effects and improve function. During March, wear green to promote awareness of cerebral palsy, educate yourself on the condition, or volunteer your time helping those with cerebral palsy or other disabilities.
