Cerebral Palsy

Supporting Every Step of the Way: Cerebral Palsy Care at Medace Clinic

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of neurological disorders affecting movement, muscle tone, and coordination. At Medace Clinic, we understand the unique challenges faced by individuals with CP and their families. Our team of specialists, including pediatric orthopaedician and physiotherapists works collaboratively to provide comprehensive care that addresses the physical, functional, and developmental needs of each patient.

Treatments

Understanding Cerebral Palsy:

Cerebral palsy results from brain damage that occurs before or shortly after birth. This damage can disrupt various motor functions, causing:

  • Muscle stiffness or spasticity: Increased muscle tone that can limit movement and flexibility.
  • Muscle weakness or hypotonia: Reduced muscle strength that can affect balance and coordination.
  • Tremors or involuntary movements: Uncontrolled shaking or jerking movements.
  • Balance and coordination problems: Difficulty walking, maintaining posture, or performing fine motor tasks.

 

Types of Cerebral Palsy:

CP can be classified based on the affected parts of the body and the type of movement disorder:

  • Spastic CP: The most common type, characterized by muscle stiffness and difficulty controlling movement.
  • Dyskinetic CP: Causes involuntary movements and muscle twitches.
  • Ataxic CP: Affects balance and coordination.
  • Mixed CP: A combination of different types.

 

Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy:

Symptoms of CP vary depending on the severity and type of the condition. Here are some common indicators:

  • Delayed motor skills: Reaching milestones like rolling, sitting, or walking later than expected.
  • Floppy or stiff muscles: Abnormal muscle tone affecting movement.
  • Seizures: Occur in some individuals with CP.
  • Speech and language difficulties: Challenges with communication.
  • Learning disabilities: May affect some individuals with CP.

 

Diagnosis at Medace Clinic:

Our team will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose CP and determine the type and severity. This may involve:

  • Detailed medical history: Discussing your child’s development, symptoms, and medical history.
  • Physical examination: Assessing muscle tone, reflexes, movement patterns, and coordination.
  • Imaging tests: MRI or CT scans may be used to visualize the brain.

 

Treatment Options for Cerebral Palsy at Medace Clinic:

There is no cure for CP, but treatment focuses on managing symptoms and maximizing function. Here are some common approaches:

  • Medications: Muscle relaxants to manage spasticity, anti-seizure medications, and pain management medications.
  • Physical therapy: Exercises to improve strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance.
  • Occupational therapy: Helps develop skills for daily activities like dressing, eating, and self-care.
  • Speech therapy: Improves communication skills.
  • Assistive devices: Braces, splints, wheelchairs, or walkers can improve mobility and independence.
  • Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be recommended to improve muscle tone, correct contractures, or address bone deformities.

I had visited Medace Clinic in Kothanur for my Tennis Elbow issue in my right hand. I was recommended for Physiotherapy treatment. I underwent this treatment for 4 days in the clinic (daily visit for treatment) and was given few exercises to be done at home post that. I got a huge relief from this treatment. The Physiotherapist was very good. She had a good knowledge and was able to get to the exact pain and provided the treatment. My pain has reduced drastically and I am able to do the daily activities without any pain now. Will be joining back to gym as well in 4 to 5 days.

We consulted Dr. Geetika throughout my wife’s pregnancy. Without question, she is a gem of a person, soft spoken and very down to earth. The best thing about her is that you can message her with the slightest doubt on WhatsApp and she is available to respond. She will take the time to listen to you and provide you with the most effective advice to address your current situation and prevent future issues. She is very very easy to talk to. Never prescribed us any unnecessary tests or medicines. She guided us in detail at every step week after week, month after month. We are so happy and proud for having done this journey with her.

Dr. Noel Kumar at Medace Clinic is an exceptional doctor who truly cares about his patients. He has been treating my todler son for the past three months, he has recovered from his femur fracture completely and I have seen a remarkable improvement in his condition. His expertise in the field is very evident in the way he diagnosed, operated and provided post operative care. Dr. Noel takes the time to explain everything in detail and answer any questions we have. He is always available to address our concerns and provide us with the best possible care. The clinic is well-equipped and staffed by friendly professionals who go above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Noel and Medace Clinic to anyone looking for quality orthopedic care.
