Paediatric Physiotherapy for Cerebral Palsy
Do you have a child who has Cerebral Palsy? If so, they most likely can’t control their body’s ability to move and maintain their posture, and this condition is among the most common forms of motor disability in children.
Cerebral Palsy is not potentially fatal, and this disorder does not become worse or more serious, but it is essential to know that it cannot be cured. So it is a lifelong condition, and the patient can benefit from cerebral palsy physiotherapy throughout his life. The nearby physiotherapists can provide expert advice regarding being able to adjust in school or their work-life and assist if walking and other daily activities become problematic later.
Cerebral Palsy happens due to brain injury or abnormal brain development as the baby develops. The symptoms appear in early childhood and vary from child to child. Problems that may come with this condition are slight movement tremors, total paralysis, or difficulty in breathing. The condition can be prevented through immunisation of the mother and making efforts to prevent head injury.
Treatments for Cerebral Palsy in children involves drug medication, physiotherapy, and sometimes, surgery.
Cerebral palsy physiotherapy includes exercises and muscle training that help the child gain flexibility, mobility, balance, and strength. The neuro physiotherapist will also guide the parents on how to care safely for the patient and take care of his everyday needs at home, such as feeding and bathing. Some equipment such as braces/splints may be necessary to help in the treatment and may result in improved walking and stretched muscles.
The general purpose of physiotherapy for cerebral Palsy are the following:
- increase muscle strength and mobility
- reduce muscular tightness and spasms through stretching exercises
- improve physical development
- increase child independence, thus the quality of life
- The risk of falls is reduced due to balanced work.
Treatment for Cerebral Palsy should be started as early as possible and should continue on a regular schedule to promote independence in the child. This may be done in rehabilitation centres like Mission Walk in Hyderabad. The physiotherapy team at the centre are aware that every patient with Cerebral Palsy is different and needs a different treatment approach. There are kids with Cerebral Palsy who cannot be brought to the centre for treatment. In this case, the therapy can be done at their home, which can be more comfortable for the patient, the parent, and the therapist.
First, they will observe and get to know the patient and the issues that he suffers from. The therapist will use the patient’s history and physical exam to come up with a diagnosis, make a treatment plan, and, whenever necessary, incorporate the results of laboratory tests, X-ray, CT-scan, and MRI.

1. Putting the patient first. We have convenient hours to see each and every patient. This can be a good sign that our children who have cerebral palsy will receive the right treatment without any inconveniences.
2. Have private treatment rooms. It is more comfortable for our patients to be treated in private rooms. They can work with their physiotherapists without any distraction or noise from other patients.
3. Treatment plans are designed in an ethical manner, which should be based on the condition of the patients, rather than the available coverage.
4. Have registered and licensed physiotherapists. Our physiotherapists are all certified so that you wouldn’t have any problem with unnecessary injury during the therapy, and the healing process gets speeded up.
5. We work on a one to one ratio, which means one therapist is to one child patient. The patient is not passed on to the assistant after being initially seen by the physiotherapist.
