In brief: Yes and no
Cerebral palsy is a movement disorder that is caused by damage to an immature brain.
There is no cure for cp. But there are many treatments for spasticity, which is the most common movement disorder associated with cp. These include, therapy, oral medications, injectable medications, and sometimes surgery.
