CP is supposed to be non progressive. I have a 'bad' left side & im 55 & my 'good' side is wearing out from dragging the other all them years. I found out by accident that wearing a splint for 2-3 hours daily stretched muscles in my 'bad' side & made that hand more dextrous. Walking is not good 'cause my 'bad' side is 2" shorter than good side. i exercise on an old cardioglide so i cant fall off & it helps immensely. I am sadly amazed that no dr recommends splints until u need carpel tunnel surgery. exercise is a magic bullet for health & no dr i see recommends it strongly enuff. Something as simple as a splint & range of motion therapy is unknown @ this community. Sry to vent.
