It starts in early childhood, leads to weakness of voluntary muscles such as those of hips, pelvic area, thighs and shoulders. Calves are often enlarged. Eventually it involves all muscles including that of heart and that control breathing. Life span is shortened to less than 30 years. It is a genetic condition primarily in boys.

Abnormal muscle tone: CP is a non-progressive damage to white matter of brain, that part which control movement and tone of muscles. Most of the causes are genetic, chromosomal, metabolic and have onset before birth. Lack of oxygen during childbirth leading to CP is not a very common cause and many other things need to happen to link CP to lack of oxygen. Preterm babies and multiple gestation are risk factors too.
