Cerebral Palsy is the leading cause of childhood disability affecting function and development. Its prevalence is approximately 1.5-2 cases per 1000 live births. Its incidence has not changed in the last more than 4 decades, despite significant advances in the medical care of neonates. Nearly 15-20 % of total physically handicapped children suffer from Cerebral Palsy. It is a condition which cripples the child during the course of growth and development. Based on its Lakshanas, the chief Dosha involved in Cerebral Palsy is identified as Vata, hence Nidana-panchaka are evolved accordingly and this disorder can be managed on the line of treatment of Vata Vyadhi.
