What is Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy?

Types of Cerebral Palsy

Spastic diplegia is the most common form of cerebral palsy, which is distinguished by the areas of the body affected, specifically the legs and lower extremities. People with spastic diplegia may have difficulty walking and experience tightness in the legs, hips, and pelvis. Their legs may have a tendency to “scissor” or cross each other.
