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.
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
