Cerebral Palsy Cure
The first thing a parent will hear after a physician says, “Your child has cerebral palsy,” will likely be the words, “At present, there is no Cerebral Palsy Cure.” However, the fact that there is no cure does not mean that the diagnosis is dire. Persons with cerebral palsy have impairment, but are considered healthy.
Cure for cerebral palsy
Today, Cerebral Palsy Cure can be managed, but not cured. The future holds promise for change.The search for a cure for the brain damage that manifests as cerebral palsy, includes research on:
- Understanding cause and causal pathways
- Preventing brain injury and brain malformation from occurring
- Intervention measures to thwart brain injury and malformation
- Repairing brain cells to restore function to damaged areas of the brain
Recently, stem cell research shows promise. Stem cell research is being performed to ascertain whether damaged brain cells can be fixed or replaced. In an experiment conducted by neurologist Evan Snyder at Harvard Medical School, mice were injected with stem cell implants. The results of the study indicate that missing cells can be spontaneously replaced.
