San Obstetrician and Gynaecologist Dr John Keogh talks about Cerebral Palsy on 2GB

Movement is something we all take for granted.

Sadly 500 babies each year are born with Cerebral Palsy, a term used for a group of permanent movement disorders which appear in early childhood and can include poor coordination, weak muscles, tremors, problems with sensation, vision, hearing, swallowing and speaking, which in turn, may lead to problems with thinking and reasoning.

To raise awareness of Cerebral Palsy, over 100 staff from the San Hospital are participating in the Steptember campaign and aiming to walk 10,000 steps a day.

San Obstetrician and Gynaecologist Dr John Keogh is one of the doctors taking part in the campaign and is talking with 2GB's Steve Price on the topic.
