Paediatric Orthopaedic and Cerebral Palsy Medical Camp

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.

Cerebral Palsy : Importance of Walking aid and Splints

This post is to stress the importance of Walking aids and Splints in Cerebral Palsy.
Very often we see children with Cerebral palsy operated upon and then they complain that even after surgery, there is no difference. On further probing they confide that there is no improvement after surgery and continuous physiotherapy. Then it slowly comes to light that due to social stigma and fear of being labelled ‘crippled’ these children / parents tend to avoid brace.
This results in children losing the improvement they would have obtained after surgery and physiotherapy and child loses muscle strength, balancing abilities and retards the improvement of the child. This results in poor self esteem, loss of confidence and the child tends not to walk. The child then enters a vicious cycle.
The video at Paediatric Orthopaedic and Limb Deformity Community at Facebook illustrates the importance of splints and walking aids in child’s gait. The left side video shows the child trying to walk without walker or splint, the center video shows child walking with only the walker and the right extreme shows the child with both splint and walker.

Dr.Easwar’s Paediatric Orthopaedic and Limb Deformity Community started at Facebook

Paediatric Orthopaedics & Limb Deformity Spectrum
Paediatric Orthopaedics & Limb Deformity Spectrum

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.

Thanks,
