How to Get Your Child Cerebral Palsy Treatment in New York

A birth injury has caused your child to suffer from cerebral palsy. There is nothing you can do to change that, but there is a lot you can do to help with your child's future. While cerebral palsy is currently incurable, it also does not worsen over time. Thus, the therapies and treatment that you get for your child may help your child maximize his abilities.

Identify the Type of Cerebral Palsy Treatment(s) Your Child May Need

Cerebral palsy treatment may prevent complications from arising and help your child live as full a life as possible. Specifically, your child may benefit from one or more of the following types of treatment:
  • Physical therapy to help with strength, balance and mobility
  • Medication to help control and relax muscles
  • Orthotics to help with balance
  • Surgery on muscles, tendons, nerves or joints to help with positioning and growth
  • Occupational therapy to help with self-care skills
  • Speech therapy to help with communication issues

To find out more about cerebral palsy treatment in New York it is important to speak with an experienced pediatrician who has treated other children with cerebral palsy, and outside agencies such as United Cerebral Palsy of New York who can help families identify appropriate programs and services.

Why to Contact a New York Birth Injury Attorney

Your child may begin treatment as soon as, or even before, he or she has a definitive cerebral palsy diagnosis, and therapy and support may continue throughout your child's life. Even with health insurance, the treatment your child needs can be expensive. Thus, it is important to contact a New York birth injury lawyer as soon as you suspect that your child may have incurred cerebral palsy because of something that went wrong during pregnancy, labor or delivery.

Your New York cerebral palsy attorney will fight hard to get your child the recovery he or she deserves.
