Free #Medical Camp for #Paediatric #Orthopaedic #Deformities, #CerebralPalsy and #Neurological disorders at #Palakkad, #Kerala
As planned we will be conducting the free #CerebralPalsy and #PaediatricOrthopaedic medical camp this month on 21st at Palakkad, Kerala. It will be held at Life Care Physiotherapy Clinic, Fort Maidan, Palak kar, Kerala.
I will be examining children with orthopedic problems, limb deformities, birth deformities like #ClubFoot, Cerebral Palsy and Spine disorders like #Scoliosis.
Like last time this camp will be conducted in association with #SevaBharathi who will provide logistic support. A big thanks the people and volunteers of SevaBharathi who’ve been associated with this since last 3 years.
The medical camp this time is further expanded to include Paediatric Neurologist, Paediatric Gastroenterologist who will also be participating.
I have created a Facebook Community to foster awareness about Paediatric Orthopaedic Limb & Spine Deformities, Bone Dysplasias, Growth Disturbances and Rare Orthopaedic Disorders in Children.
Paediatric Orthopaedic Problems cover a varied spectrum of disorders that require extensive training to handle well.These include congenital (birth defects) of limbs, scoliosis, hip and foot deformities, metabolic disroders like rickets, dysplasias, bone and joint infections and trauma (fractures).
May be you would have seen a child known to you with a bone problem, or may be one of your dear ones has a problem and didnt know whom to ask. Many parents delay the treatment either because of financial constraints or delay seeking treatment thinking that nothing can be done. Awareness is very important. With a specialised Paediatric Orthopaedic and Limb Deformity Surgeons advise these children can get better results it treatment is started early.
This Community will help parents discuss matters pertaining to treatment of these conditions. I will also be posting awareness articles, images periodically.
Please visit my Facebook Page to join, like and share the group. Please help raise awareness among general public that these children can get specialised treatment and can improve their quality of life.
