Using #STEM teaching as a rehabilitation tool in Disability – Karunya, Palakkad
This is my #NFT #Art to raise awareness on #Disability caused by #CerebralPalsy .
Importance of detecting it early and early intervention is stressed.

Cerebral Palsy is such a drastic turn of fortune for any family. The poorer the family, the more challenging. With her back to the closed door, symbolising all the lost life oppurtunities, a mother steadfastly leads her child along the well lit path of medical care with darkness of either side.
#ArztForACause : Mother leading a Cerebral Palsy Child…
As part of our #ArztForACause effort to raise awareness of #PediatricOrthopaedic #Diseases and upcoming #WorldDisabilityDay I have made this #Art on #FibularHemimelia
#CerebralPalsy is a tough problem in #PaediatricOrthopaedics. The children have spasm, contracture and variety of coordination and balancing issues. #ToneInhibitingCasts offer a great solution to decrease #spasm in young #children.
Fibular Hemimelia is a Congenital Limb deficiency ..
Two years have passed and we hobble back to restart our work and pick up pieces. Many children have lost the improvements that they had attained as they lost out of treatment due to lack of money, travel restrictions and physiotherapy.
Tired day at waiting room. Overslept. Drowsy. A hurriedly drunk coffee with spills in morning before the day’s at doctors’ office starts. #Art 🎭
Medicine is tough. Treatment slow, arduous. I feel for those who wait patiently in crowded poorly appointed waiting rooms, corridors in India’s hospital for the poor. They spend their days here by the loved ones

International Day for Persons of Disability 2019 Programme at ICCONS, Shoranur, Kerala
October 6th we will join the world at ICCONS, Shoranur , Kerala in celebrating #WorldCerebralPalsy day.
I am happy to announce that we successfully organised a #Clubfoot Parental Awareness and Caregiving Programme at the Palakkad District Co-operative Hospital, #Palakkad, #Kerala on August 31st, 2019. This was done to organise parents into a self support group and to provide parents the necessary group counselling on #Ponseti Method of #Clubfoot treatment. @childortho @dreaswar
#clubfoot guide and interactive session for patents at #Palakkad Cooperative Hospital.
The program includes a lecture by me on Clubfoot for parents and a interaction with our Clubfoot Care Team , Orthosis Check, Doubts about casting, checking recurrence of deformity and general clarification on Clubfoot care. Parents will have an opportunity to interact with other parents exchange their experience about treatment, the issues and build a support community.
Cerebral Palsy is such a difficult disease to handle and treat for the health care professionals.
The treatment process needs to take the parents and family members along so that these children get optimal care. It’s important to reinforce on the parents and lift their morale throughout the course of long and arduous treatment.
I routinely arrange seminars and medical camps and arrange public events in association with groups serving these children to help them and keep caregiver morale high. It’s a fight, a relentless fight against Cerebral Palsy.
It never ceases to amaze and move me that the mother , however humble or rich , illiterate or well educated, they may be cares for the child and stays with child through thick and thin.
