Summer and its Affects on the Body with CP

 it's summer






This is the third season when everyone one.is outside and it doesn't matter whether you have a disability or not but with this season comes the reversal of the situation for winter. because again muscle tone and joint pain can occur. With cerebral palsy, it doesn't matter because of the muscle tone being tight being because of it being too hot just as it would be if it was too cold as in winter. 


A good example of this was a British Paralympian who was in Rio and said that her body loves the heat for muscle tone as it made it easier to run etc however her skin and the rest of the body where cerebral palsy is not affected the body hated the heat because of the humidity.


Doing this group of posts I asked various members of a group who have cerebral palsy and different types such as spastic, ataxic and diplegic And it doesn't didn't matter what type of disability or cerebral palsy someone has where the weather will affect the body to some extent. 


In conclusion to this then it would make no difference whether the person went out if they were worse too hot or too cold because the disability would be affected in the same way however when the weather is ideal then is the optimal time to go out and do things.
