excersise induced leg cramps and cerebral palsy related?
My 15 yr old has mild cerebral palsy and after triple session football practice 8-530 experienced severe leg cramps and tightening. He had 2 banannas glass of milk and tons of water and a salty dinner. Are these related to his mild CP or a result of general overuse.

It's most likely just from overuse and his body is not used to this much exercise. Giving him bananas was a smart move to get him potassium to help with cramping, which is about all you can do to help with that. He could also take a warm bath to loosen up the sore muscles.

Though if you are ever really concerned, don't be afraid to call his doctor and ask any questions you may have.
