The Today Show: New Hope in Battle Against Cerebral Palsy
Posted Dec 03 2009 12:00am
My mother brought to my attention that Dr. Nancy Snyderman was on The Today Show discussing the strides that have been made in the therapy and treatment of those afflicted with Cerebral Palsy. Cerebral Palsy is a neurological disorder that appears in infancy or early childhood; it affects movement and muscle coordination.
Dr. Snyderman mentioned how robotics are being used in working with people who have Cerebral Palsy. She also mentioned that under the Obama administration, extraordinary advances are being made in terms of stem cell research. How hopeful and exciting!
