Are Cerebral Palsy Patients Immunocompromised?

Are Cerebral Palsy Patients Immunocompromised?

Wednesday, November 03, 2021

Every 1 in 345 children in the United States lives with cerebral palsy. This motor disability is caused by an abnormal development in the brain before birth, leading to the inability of the patient to control their muscles. Cerebral palsy may indirectly influence your immune system as well, even though there is no known direct effect.

Since the disorder is caused by damage to the brain, stem cell therapy is a viable option that can help repair the brain injury and help you or your loved ones battle the symptoms of cerebral palsy.

What Causes Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a perinatal disorder that is caused by brain injury right before, during, or after the time of birth. This time period is very sensitive, and if the baby is injured in this frame, the health consequences can be dire. The brain injury can be caused by an infection of the uterus, lack of oxygen or nutrition for the developing fetus or newborn baby, and the brain injury may also be caused by genetics as well.

How Does Cerebral Palsy Affect the Immune System?

Cerebral palsy does not directly affect your immune system, but the decreased physical activity, decreased ability to chew food effectively, and higher levels of anxiety and stress can all play a role in lowering your immunity.

Not being able to move around as much and failing to get proper physical activity can slow down your metabolic rate, leading to lower immunity. Alongside the lack of movement, when cerebral palsy affects the muscles around the mouth, you will find it hard to chew and this can make it difficult to get the nutrition you need, also leading to extra strain on your immune system.

Related Conditions to Cerebral Palsy

There are different types of cerebral palsy, and the symptoms vary from patient to patient. However, all cerebral palsy patients have difficulty with movement and controlling their muscles. Some patients with cerebral palsy may not be able to walk at all, while others may need special equipment to help them walk. Though cerebral palsy does not progressively get worse in most cases, the symptoms can change over time.

Other conditions related to cerebral palsy include:

  • Seizures
  • Intellectual disability
  • Complications with hearing and seeing
  • Joint and spine problems

If you or a loved one is living with cerebral palsy, you should visit the Stemaid Institute to learn more about the cerebral palsy therapy we offer.

Stem Cell Therapy for Cerebral Palsy

Once the condition has been diagnosed by medical professionals, you will be given a variety of medical interventions to help you improve your quality of life. Your doctor may recommend braces to help you with movement, surgery, and medicine to reduce your symptoms, and different therapies to help you reach your full potential.

At Stemaid Institute, we offer a cerebral palsy new treatment that focuses on repairing the damage in your brain and in all affected organs in the body, so you can start recovering. Our neurodevelopmental treatment for cerebral palsy works through the use of regenerative medicine. Through the use of pluripotent stem cells, we seek to target and repair the damage in your brain, so your symptoms start to fade away. The Pluripotent stem cells also travel to all 220+ tissues of your body, signaling repair in muscles, joints, and all organs. This helps with all symptoms associated with cerebral palsy.
