  • He also feels that in future the cerebral palsy can be prevented if the cause is infection through immunization. Even if the transmission is hereditary, the cerebral palsy can be controlled through genetic engineering.[cerebralpalsytreating.com]
  • Physical therapy and exercise can help maintain mobility and muscle strength, improve range of motion and endurance, reduce fatigue, and prevent cramps and spasms. Baclofen (a muscle relaxant) is the drug of choice to reduce spasticity.[merckmanuals.com]
