Many treatments are available to help an individual with Cerebral Palsy to function at the highest possible level. For nearly every individual, some type of therapeutic exercise program is needed, which may involve a physical therapist, and an occupational therapist. Many individuals with Cerebral Palsy also undergo Speech and Language Therapy, and some undergo Sensory Integration Therapy. There are surgical treatments to improve muscle development, correct contractures, and reduce spasticity. There are also drug therapy programs to help control siezures associated with Cerebral Palsy, or to reduce spasticity for short periods of time. Many experimental treatments are being developed as well.
