Best Treatment Option - Hemiplegia (or hemiphlegia) is a condition where a vertical half of a patient's body is weak or paralyzed, i.e. one arm and its corresponding leg do not function properly. It can be congenital (occurring before, during, or soon after birth) or acquired (as from illness or stroke). It is usually the result of a stroke, although disease processes affecting the spinal cord and other diseases affecting the hemispheres are equally capable of producing this clinical state.
Cerebral palsy can also affect one hemisphere, resulting in limited function. This does not cause paralysis but instead causes spasms. Cerebral palsy where this is the only symptom is often referred just as hemiplegia.
Hemiplegia is similar to hemiparesis, hemiparesis is considered less severe
Signs of hemiplegia, hemiparesis, or hemiplegic cerebral palsy may include:
muscle weakness or stiffness - spasticity
paralysis on one side
lack of control on the affected side of the body
little use of one hand
limping, toe drop, gait problems
speech or language difficulties
visual field defects
perceptual or sensory issues
specific learning difficulties
IQ scores for children with hemiplegia seem to follow the same range as the general population.
