Cerebral palsy - Spasticity Treatment in Gujarat

Cerebral palsy - Spasticity Treatment in Ahmedabad

Cerebral palsy is condition in which there is improper development of brain & some other parts of the body. CP child may be mentally weak to grossly retarded.Children suffering from this disorder have stiff limbs, so they cannot sit or move or do work. But if they undergo stereotactic surgery viz. pallidiotomy, dentate nucleotomy etc.(Ablative procedure) Or stimulation (DBS- Deep Brain Stimulation), then limbs become loose and they can walk or sit and work independently. This will not only relieve spasticity of lower limbs and upper limbs but also of neck muscles. Postoperative physiotherapy and electric stimulation greatly helps in regaining normal power of limbs and activity. Spasticity due to any cause like cerebral palsy, post stroke, post trauma ( head injury, spine injury ), degenerative ( brain, spine ) demyelination or infection, is relieved with stereotactic surgery.
