Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy

Children and adults with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy will exhibit symptoms of cp that will be concentrated mostly in the lower extremities of their body. Typically their gait is the most affected with a scissor style of walking that is very noticeable, as well as significant flexing through the hips and knees, leading to other joint problems in many cases. This can be significant, requiring assistance when movement is required both with children as well as adults. Generally those diagnosed with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy will not have any cognitive difficulties however some individuals may have problems with strabismus or crossed eyes. Although these individuals are ambulatory in most cases, they will need assistance and perhaps mobility devices as they mature and grow. Planning and managing this type of lifelong assistance can be costly and challenging and these types of considerations need to be factored in when legal settlements are being determined.
