Expert opinion from Marcelle Freire

Cerebral palsy is a medical term that generically designates a condition in which, by some pathological mechanism, the cerebral motor cortex has been compromised, irreversibly damaging the affected structures. The causes of cerebral palsy are diverse, such as trauma, hypoxia (due, for example, to suffocation, drowning, problems in childbirth), hemorrhages, infections, genetic diseases, metabolic causes, among others. Several functions, organs and systems suffer as a result, and the patient may experience a constellation of motor and cognitive symptoms (such as pain, cognitive retardation, motor difficulties such as walking or picking up a glass, speech difficulties, swallowing difficulties, urinary incontinence, among countless other symptoms) that significantly and irreversibly impair their quality of life.
