My girlfriend, age 29, has only one problem re CP: she has no balance when in an upright position. Therefore, she uses crutches for mobility. Recently she was told that, as she ages, she will no longer be able to be mobile on crutches and will be required to use a wheelchair on a full time basis. Does anyone know if there is any medical validity to this prognosis? Thanks a lot!
