Cerebral Palsy: Study of Baby Steps Could Lead to Better Treatments
[Source: Medical X-Press]
Understanding the progression from the stepping reflex to independent walking could help find new therapies for children with cerebral palsy (CP) – a movement disability caused by brain damage before, during or shortly after birth.
