Cerebral Palsy Non progressive damage to motor portion of brain resulting in tone disorder and affecting movement and onset is before during or after birth up to 3 years not genetic (caused by tetratogens (7-8 months) and other factors) Hypertonic( spastic or rigid), Hypotonia (flopp), Athetosis (mixxed or fluctuationg tone), Ataxia (in normal to low tone) Limited ability to initiate pr move through full ROM,poor ability to control co contraction, (plegias) contractures, postura reflex mechanisms, deficits in all performance areas because of tone, 40% noral intelligence, if not walking by 6 then wont be neurodevelopment treatments, biomechanical, adaptation includes splinting, bracing, and technological devices. , life span around 40 years, 10% of adults entirely self supporting,
Spina Bifida Neural tube birth defect of the backbone and sometimes spinal chord, congenital thought to have genetic gfactor, folic acid reduces risk, Occulta, Meningocele, Myelomeningocele, (cyst hold nerev of spinal chord back needs to be surgically closed, hydrocephalus, paralysis below level of defect, musculoskeletal deformities, bowel and bladder dysfunction visospatial deficits, memory deficits, coctail party speech, 85% survive to adulthood
Muscular dystrophy Genetic resulting in flaws in muscle protien gene. -genetic diseases marked by progressive wekness and degeneration of the skeletal, voluntary muscles that control movement.(most common is Duchenne Myotonic (c19) muscle weakness, cns, (congenital-elayed sucking,swallowing,breathing motor and MR) duchenne-2-6 yrs onset males only (x linked)-starts with frequent falling, can't get up, gowers sighn, some have MR, life span only to 20 death from pneumonia, respiratory failure, cardiac problems (blank) (blank)
spinal chord injury damage to spinal chord that results in loss of function such as mobility or feeling 10,000 incidence a year moslty due to car accidents and violence high tetraplegia c1-t4/ low tetraplegia c5-c7/ paraplegia-lumbar or sacral below t10 high tetraplegia- no function below level of injury, c1-c3 use ventilator/low tetraplegia-c5-shoulder and bicepts but no wrist use, c6- wrist control but no hand use, c7t1-dexterity problems and no function below this spinal level/hand not affec at lumbar c7-independent with adaptations--leading cause of death is pnemonia, pulmonary emboli, septicema ((paralysis and loss ofo sensation below level of leision

arthrogryphosis non progessive contracture of 2 or more joints at birth(rare)more common in males limited movement in uterou may cause abnormal dev of tendons bones and joints amyoplasia ( abnormal dev of muscle fibers)/ Cns and spinal chord can be malformed/can be genetic syndrome limb muscle replaced by fibrous or fatty tissue/multiple joint contractures/normal intelligence (blank) wrst with cns involvement best is amyplasia// Splinting ROM compensation and adaptation
fragile X syndrome more males than females hypotonia, poor eye contact, speech is persverative echolailic, Iq usually moderate but females can be svere like autistic adhd agressive anxiety and unstable mood (blank) (blank) (blank)
