Cerebral palsy is a developmental condition which affects about 1 in 100 babies at the time of their birth.
The brain, which governs vital body functions such as movement, coordination and breathing, may become damaged due to rough handling by obstetricians & physicians as well as infection during pregnancy. While this disorder doesn’t get worse after birth, a child born with cerebral palsy may need expensive specialized care for the rest of his or her life, as well as intensive physiotherapy.
Hypotonic cerebral palsy is a condition where the muscle loses its normal tone, causing limbs to become "floppy." This is as a result of damage to the cerebellum, a part of the brain found at the back of the head close to the brain stem. The cerebellum is responsible for proper balance and coordination; any kind of damage to this part of the brain may cause serious harm.
Most cases of cerebral palsy are attributed to brain damage at birth due to inflammation and lack of blood flow. Inflammation as a natural response to organ injury and is meant to help that part of the body heal itself. The problem with inflammation is that it may eventually damage large swathes of the brain if left unchecked. During this process, the body produces specialized proteins to help bring the swelling of the brain down.
Another cause of hypotonic cerebral palsy is strokes. These may interfere with the normal transportation of blood and oxygen to various parts of the brain, leaving them starving for vital nutrients necessary for survival. These strokes may come as a result of conditions such as pelvic inflammatory disease and high blood pressure, both of which should be checked before and during the commencement of pregnancy.
Here are a few signs which may indicate that your child has hypotonic cerebral palsy:

  1. Floppy arm and feet
  2. Poor posture
  3. A head that hangs on either side or forward and backwards; this may point to neck muscle weakness
  4. Difficulty breathing
  5. Lack of coordination causing your child to fall or have trouble walking

All these symptoms point to lack of muscle tone. Medical malpractice may be one of the causes of hypotonic cerebral palsy.
