Spastic Triplegia Cerebral Palsy
Spastic Triplegia is a type of spastic cerebral palsy that affects three of the limbs, usually one leg and both arms. Spastic Triplegia is one of the rarest forms of spastic cerebral palsy. In Spastic cerebral palsy, the muscles are tight and stiff, and have increased resistance to being stretched. They become overactive when used and produce clumsy movements. Normal muscles work in pairs: when one group contracts, the other group relaxes to allow free movement in the desired direction. Spastic muscles become active together and block effective movement. This muscular "tug-of-war" is called co-contraction.
Spasticity may be mild and affect only a few movements, or severe and affect the whole body. The amount of spasticity usually changes over time. Therapy, surgery, drugs and adaptive equipment may help to control spasticity. Damage to the brain's cerebral cortex is generally the cause of spastic cerebral palsy.
