Cerebral hemiplegia refers to a persistent central movement and posture normal developmental dysfunction and active limitation syndrome. These syndromes are often caused by non-incurring brain damage in growing or normally developing neonates and infants. The aim of this paper is to analyze the evaluation of clinical care and the effectiveness of physical rehabilitation treatment in children with cerebral palsy. This paper first analyzes the necessity of combining education and recovery among kids suffering from cerebral paralysis. Rehabilitation training or intellectual education alone is far from enough for children with cerebral palsy. The two must be combined to truly improve the self-care ability of children with cerebral palsy. Then, the method of medical image segmentation was introduced, and finally, the experimental comparison and analysis of the conditions of the two groups of kids with cerebral palsy before and after treatment were conducted. The experimental findings revealed that after two courses of treatment to compare the two groups of kids with cerebral palsy, the overall efficacy rate was 87.5% for the treated group and 67.7% for the controlled group. The results of the experiment showed that the clinical efficacy of the control group was not as good as that of the treatment group by rank sum test. This shows that on the basis of the most basic comprehensive rehabilitation treatment, acupuncture to relieve the spinal points can be used to treat the symptoms of cerebral palsy. This can effectively enhance the motor function of the major muscles in children with cerebral palsy, and can promote their intellectual development, which is better than the most basic comprehensive rehabilitation treatment alone.
