Living Right: Helping Children With Cerebral Palsy

Posted: Updated:

Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that affects a person's movement, balance and posture.  

There is no cure and patients are often told there's nothing that can be done to help them, but one doctor wants to change that.

In Living Right, Courtney Hunter has more details how this special doctor is using her own experiences to help others.

Doctor Brunstrom's Pediatric Neurology Cerebral Palsy Center is in St. Louis.  

The center has a team of experts including neurologists, orthopedic surgeons and nurses.     

They also have occupational, physical, speech and sports therapists, sports rehab and an augmentative communication team to help patients.
