Pediatric Cerebral Palsy

Pediatric Cerebral Palsy & Hyperbarics

Cerebral Palsy (CP) affects 3 out of every 1,000 making it the most widespread disability in childhood. This group of motor disorders affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture and may result in the need for life-long assistance and care. Cerebral Palsy is caused by abnormal brain development or damage to the developing brain that affects a person’s ability to control their muscles. Many people also have related conditions such as intellectual disability, seizures, problems with vision, hearing and speech, changes in the spine or joint problems.

Hyperbaric therapy has been shown to help ameliorate the effects of CP. The affected brain tissue, or penumbra, can be recovered or improved by introducing increased levels of oxygen. It has also been shown to be a promising treatment with multiple studies reporting improvements with its application.
