The term “cerebral palsy” refers to a number of motor related disorders that can hinder growth and physical development. These disorders typically limit body movement considerably, rendering the patient unable to carry out even the simplest tasks. Patients with cerebral palsy may also experience severe disfiguration, poor posture, and problems with visual perception.
If the patient is approved for medical marijuana use, small doses may be helpful in relaxing the muscles and reducing pain. Patients may also have a better appetite and a generally more positive outlook.
