Cerebral palsy syndrome

Respiratory cerebral palsy is also called pediatric cerebral palsy (CP). Cerebral palsy-a violation of the musculoskeletal system, characterized by an anomaly of motor function and postural tone, which is acquired at an early age, before birth.

The damage is found in the brain, often accompanied by mental retardation, epilepsy, behavioral abnormalities, mental disorders and visual, auditory and speech disorders.

Causes of cerebral palsy syndrome

Course of pregnancy

Pregnancy infections, physical and chemical factors, fetal hypoxia and maternal nutritional disorders can affect the fetus. For example, in the early stages of pregnancy, the mother suffered from the influenza virus and the like that can affect the brain tissue of the fetus. In severe cases, cerebral palsy may occur after birth.

Genetic factor

In recent years, studies have shown that genetic factors are increasingly important in cerebral palsy. For example, two factors in epilepsy, cerebral palsy and mental retardation in close relatives account for 65% of cerebral palsy. There is also a chromosomal abnormality.

Fertility factor

Gestational age less than 32 weeks, foreshadowing, birth weight less than 2000 g and fetal malformation are the most important risk factors for cerebral palsy. Also important risk factors are asphyxia, amnion, abnormal fetal position and short umbilical cord.

Conventional treatment of cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy is difficult to treat, and children with severe cerebral palsy find it difficult to sit, stand and walk in the future. They often cannot take care of themselves and require a lot of rehabilitation and medical expenses. Children with advanced cerebral palsy can only relieve symptoms, improve quality of life and cannot be cured, which brings tremendous pain and strain to individuals and families.

Physiotherapy

Common physical therapy methods include electroacupuncture, muscle stimulation, Spa, cold and hot compresses. The main purpose is to regulate function, relieve spasm, stimulate low muscle tone, stimulate blood circulation, maintain and expand joint mobility and increase muscle strength. Regular rehabilitation can only help to improve the muscular tension of the limbs in children.

Surgical treatment

When muscles are strongly compressed and joints are deformed, orthopedic surgery can be performed and all body parts requiring orthopedics must be completed in one operation to improve function after surgery. However, surgical treatment is usually not considered because the risk to the child is too great and it easily damages the healthy nerves of the brain, leading to a number of complications.

Stem cells in the treatment of cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy is a lifelong disease that endangers the health of children. The existing traditional therapy has a low therapeutic effect and cannot achieve therapeutic goals due to the underlying cause of cerebral palsy. In recent years, clinical trials at home and abroad have shown that stem cell transplantation contributes to the functional recovery of traumatic brain injury. It is expected that this will significantly improve the problem of cerebral palsy.
