Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is caused by abnormal brain development or damage to the developing brain of a child and affects a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture. It’s the most common motor disability in childhood and can either occur before a child is born, at birth, or in early infancy. It generally causes weakness in the muscles that leads to issues moving and maintaining balance. 

According to a study published in the National Library of Medicine, low-level energy exposures from an 808-nm diode laser were found to be an effective short-term therapeutic tool for cerebral palsy. This treatment increased the amplitude of mouth opening and decreased the muscle tonus of children with spastic CP over a time course of three weeks of intermittent laser applications.
