I Have CpHi I have mild cp that affects my feet, legs and pelvis. I also have balance problems. I was born in 1975, was 10 weeks early and weighed 3 pounds 10 onces. I went to a 'normal' school, but couldn't always do the sports activities other kids were doing. I had physiotherapy up until the age of 16, however it stopped when i reached that age. Since then my feet, legs and pelvis have become a lot stiffer and this has caused postural imbalances throughout my body. I also suffer from clenching my teeth at night which the doctors don't want to know about. The tension in my head, neck and jaw from the clenching makes me have really bad headaches, nausea and dizziness. This is quite debilitating as I already have balance problems with the cp, so find it difficult to cope sometimes. i got married last year and have a very understanding and supportive husband, so in lots of ways I am very lucky.
I just wonder if anyone knows of any therapies etc that would help with my cp and if anyone has cp who is reading this I would love to hear from you.
