The difference between CP, brain injury and stroke treatment

Postby healthinmotion » Wed Jun 22, 2011 7:22 am

Hi everyone,

We just finished a new blog that looks at the difference between
cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury and pediatric stroke and how
that affects how a child's treatment should be approached. It would be
great if you could take a look and tell us what you think!

You can find the article here: http://www.enabledkids.ca/?p=793

As always, we'd be more than happy to answer any comments, questions
or concerns that you may have. We're active on Facebook and Twitter as
well, so make sure to follow us and keep the conversation going!

Thanks so much everyone, and have a great week :-)

often brought together under the same treatment processes and types of rehabilitation. It is common knowledge for many people who work with kids that the approach to take is often quite similar between the three conditions. However, after working with and observing children who have cerebral palsy, brain injury or pediatric stroke, personally I would disagree with this method and viewpoint. In my opinion, there are many reasons why treatment for each condition should be distinct, and the first thing I would like to examine is what makes each condition different from the next..

To start with, cerebral palsy can be generalized as a condition that a child is born with. The degree of severity of his condition will depend on how severely the brain is affected, and–by following a chain reaction–on the stages of development he has missed. .

What is the mildest case of CP you have encountered? Have you encountered a misdiagnosis of CP for TBI/PS? Is there anything that could differ later in age with different a diagnosis? Due to something caused at birth I was later diagnosed with CP, however, I reached every milestone on my own without PT, it never affected my education as I graduated top of my class nor did it affect my face, speech or cause muscle spasms. I did receive regular PT due to a lack of dexterity and weakness in my right hand/leg. If I told someone I have CP they think I’m lying. At age 30 I’ve been thinking of asking a doctor about my diagnosis. My question is, would it be worth it though?? Could anything further be done to help my slight lack of dexterity? Or change anything else?? Is an extremely mild case of CP possible? Dot net Training in Chennai :D

i am still battling to understand the differences in physio treatment between cp and abi.
surely repetition of the movements and repeated instructions are a criteria for learning motor skills in both groups. please could you recommend further reading for me.

Yes, I am also struggling to differentiate the CP and ABI. I search for it in google scholar as well as in the text books in my university library, but it still hard to get the answer
