Spastic diplegia cerebral palsy rarediseases.info.nih.gov
“..is a form of cerebral palsy, a neurological condition that usually appears in infancy or early childhood and permanently affects muscle control and coordination. Affected people have increased muscle tone which leads to spasticity (stiff or tight muscles and exaggerated reflexes) in the legs. The arm muscles are generally less affected or not affected at all. Other signs and symptoms may include delayed motor or movement milestones (i.e. rolling over, sitting, standing); walking on toes; and a “scissored” gait (style of walking). It occurs when the portion of the brain that controls movement is damaged or develops abnormally. The exact underlying cause is often unknown; however, the condition has been associated with genetic abnormalities; congenital brain malformations; maternal infections or fevers; and/or injury before, during or shortly after birth. There is no cure, and treatment options vary depending on the signs and symptoms present in each person and the severity of the condition…”

…How Infants Acquire Diplegic Cerebral Palsy
The most common way a baby gets diplegic cerebral palsy is because of neonatal asphyxia. This usually occurs when a newborn ends up without enough oxygen during the birthing process. Children who come out prematurely and/or have a low weight at birth are also at a greater risk of potentially acquiring this disability. Both traits can expose a baby to oxygen issues when birth occurs.
Rubella, high-grade fevers, and other maternal infections during pregnancy can also lead to an infant developing diplegic cerebral palsy…

When a child is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, a parent might wonder what’s in store for them in terms of therapy.
Which ones should they participate in? What is available? How long various interventions are expected to last?
Noreen Scott is a Physical Therapist and owner of Tender Ones Therapy Services in Dacula, Georgia.
She believes in the power of Physical Therapy when it comes to children with Cerebral Palsy.
“When we work with children with CP, our ultimate goal is for them to be as functional as they can possibly be and as independent. In order to be able to do those skills and be independent, you have to have the building blocks. What those building blocks are…are getting your range of motion through an acceptable amount, being flexible, being strong, having good balance…so that child can stand and walk and be independent on their own and as they grow older,” says Noreen.
In the following video report, Noreen explains how Cerebral Palsy affects children, goals associated with Physical Therapy, and how long parents should expect their child to see a Physical Therapist.

Woman misdiagnosed with cerebral palsy gets cure after 33 years By Paula Cohen CBS News April 22, 2015, 2:39 PM .cbsnews.com
“..The 38-year-old Minnesota mother of three was diagnosed as a child with spastic diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy, a neurological disorder that appears early in life and permanently disrupts the brain’s ability to control movement and balance.
For more than three decades, Abbott says she suffered from debilitating symptoms. “I could barely move my arms or legs to due to the countless hours of spasms, stiffness and cramping through out my body,” she wrote on her blog. She underwent “countless doctors visits, medical procedures, unnecessary medications and surgeries.”
Despite the physical challenges, she says she was able to “make friends, go away to college, marry and have children,” and she notes with pride that she managed “to maintain a positive attitude and be a joyful person throughout this whole ordeal.”
But it turns out the diagnosis was wrong. She never had cerebral palsy.
In 2010, a new doctor recognized that her symptoms, which never quite fit with the classic signs of cerebral palsy, were actually caused by something else: a rare but treatable condition called dopa-responsive dystonia…”
Woman Healed of Cerebral Palsy Through Vision
“I was His, and He was my Dad — and that was it forever,” she declares. “I just thought that if I was born with cerebral palsy, I must be born with it because God created me that way. I didn’t realize He wanted people healed. I didn’t realize He wanted good things for everyone, so, at first, I just thought, Well, there’s got to be a reason for it. He’s smarter than I am.”
During her teenage years, Marlene suffered numerous spasms caused by muscular surgery. These attacks were sometimes so violent they left her attendants with broken bones. After one severe spasm, Marlene was left almost totally paralyzed. Her vision, along with the rest of her condition, grew progressively worse.
In December 1980, as a last resort, Marlene was taken from her home in Missouri to the world’s finest hospital, the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
Her former nurse, Nancy White, remembers her condition. “Marlene was a spastic quadriplegic and pretty much depended on other people to provide for her needs. She needed someone to help her get in and out of bed, in and out of her wheelchair, and to help her go to the bathroom. She was pretty much dependent to the point where she really didn’t do a lot physically herself.”
Emerson had never had a miracle take place in his church.
“They gathered around me to pray,” Marlene remembers, “and the pastor said, ‘I don’t know how to pray.’ But he asked God to heal me from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. And then they asked if I wanted to stand up on faith.”
“Immediately upon lifting her out of the chair, we began to feel strength coming into her legs,” says Emerson. ..”

“..It was in the hospital that we witnessed the spirit and fight she carries with her to this day. We had a few big scares while we were there, but that hospital was also the place where we first saw her smile, the place where we first held her. All the nurses called her a “fiery little one.” The miracles continued, and during that time, we learned about all of the terrible things that could have happened. Through the many challenges we faced, this knowledge left us with an overwhelming sense of gratitute—for our loving God, family and community that surround us.
When Noa was 1 year old, we noticed that as time was passing, so were some of the important milestones she should have been reaching. At a year old, Noa wasn’t able to support her weight enough to sit up. Her legs were tight, and she wasn’t using her hands the way we would have hoped. It took one visit to a neurologist to receive a diagnosis of spastic diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy that causes the legs to be riddled with spasticity. Because of this condition, she also has little muscle tone in her torso.
