Staying well as you get older
Cerebral palsy is a non-progressive condition, but that doesn’t mean a person’s health or mobility needs don’t change as they get older. Years of altered postures, altered movement patterns, seizures, medication and constant use of equipment all take their toll on the body.
Just as it’s important to teach children with cerebral palsy how to make the best of their bodies, into adulthood, you can do everything possible to stay active, maintain mobility, and reduce any pain.
