Different Types of Cerebral Palsy

What are the Different Types & Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a general term for a wide range of neurological disorders that develop as a result of damage to the brain during pregnancy, birth or within the first few years of life. This condition usually results in low muscle tone, unsteady movements and posture and uncontrollable spasms. While there are a few common types of cerebral palsy, they don’t always develop in isolation and some people suffer from more than one type. The most common types of cerebral palsy include:

  • Ataxic Cerebral Palsy
  • Athetoid Cerebral Palsy
  • Spastic Cerebral Palsy
  • Mild Cerebral Palsy

Spastic cerebral palsy occurs in combinations with one of the other types in 30% of cases. In addition to these, numerous other minor forms of cerebral palsy have developed in rare instances.
