    Explanation
    Cerebral Palsy is a neurological disorder that affects movement and muscle coordination. It is characterized by difficulties in controlling and coordinating muscle movements, resulting in trouble with movement. This can manifest as muscle stiffness, weakness, tremors, or involuntary movements. Individuals with cerebral palsy may have challenges with walking, balance, posture, and fine motor skills.
