Special issue information:

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of neurological disorders that affect movement, balance, and posture. It is caused by damage to the developing brain before, during, or shortly after birth. The symptoms of cerebral palsy vary from person to person and can range from mild to severe. Some common symptoms include difficulty with coordination and muscle control, spasticity (stiff or tight muscles), tremors, and difficulty with speech. Treatment for cerebral palsy typically involves a team approach, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and medication to manage symptoms.This special issue will include but not limit with the mechanism understanding and innovative researches on:
1. Botulinum toxin injections:
2. Selective dorsal rhizotomy
3. Intrathecal baclofen pump therapy
4. Deep brain stimulation
5. Constraint-induced movement therapy
6. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
7. Stem cell therapy
8. Novel evaluation technology like Wearable sensors, Functional MRI, Computerized adaptive testing and big data.
9. Novel therapies like Robotic-assisted therapy ,Virtual reality, Functional electrical stimulation, Hippotherapy and Music
