Cerebral Palsy In Kids - Treatments That Can Help!

Cerebral Palsy is a disorder related to the posture, movement or muscle tone, mostly due to immature development of the brain in a baby. This condition usually crops up, when the baby is already in the womb. The symptoms may surface when the baby is in its infancy or even later. Irregularities in the reflexes, posture, walking style, etc should ring a bell for the parents. Kids suffering from cerebral palsy may also suffer from muscle imbalance of the eye muscles, leading to problems focusing on an object. The range of motions becomes limited as well. There could be conditions such as deafness, epilepsy, impaired brain function and blindness associated with this disease. 

Whom to consult for cerebral palsy in kids? 
A kid suffering from Cerebral Palsy might have to work with a medical team for a very long time. Parents might need the help of a paediatrician, orthopaedic surgeon, paediatric neurologist, physical therapist, speech-language pathologist, mental health specialist, developmental therapist, recreation therapist and special education teacher. 

Treatments that are available for Cerebral Palsy in kids Medication: 

Medications: Medications are often used to improve the functional abilities of a kid. Certain spasticity related complications, treatment of pain, and other symptoms of Cerebral Palsy can be treated with medications. It is important to discuss with the doctor, the side-effects involved in taking the medication. There are two types of medications- for isolated spasticity and for generalized spasticity. In case of Isolated spasticity, doctors recommend Botox injections every 4-6 months to stabilize one muscle group. If the whole body is affected due to cerebral palsy, doctors recommend medications such as baclofen, diazepam and dantrolene to relax the contracted and stiff muscles. 

Therapies: While there are many therapy treatment, three types of therapies are the most important for treating a child suffering from cerebral palsy. They are physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech& language therapy. Physical therapy is necessary for the flexibility, mobility and motor development of the child. Occupational therapy helps a kid imbibe alternative strategies to participate in daily activities. From teaching a child to walk with a cane to help them operate a wheelchair, physical therapy makes a child self-sufficient as much as possible. Speech and language therapy helps child’s ability to communicate either verbally or with sign-language. 

Surgery: Surgery may be necessary to loosen the muscles, correct abnormalities of the bone etc. An orthopaedic surgery is necessary in cases where a kid was born with several deformities. The correction can decrease pain and increase mobility. In severe cases when the normal treatments do not help, doctors cut the tendon of spastic muscle. It helps to relieve the pain and relax the muscle.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I want to know when should one consult a psychologist and a neurologist. I think both these specialists deal with brain. Mental health is generally treated by psychologists for people having some thing wrong in the brain, right.

Hello lybrate-user. Psychology deals with the mind, means our thoughts, behaviour, cognitive powsers etc. While Neurologist treat the organs like brain and nerves. The physical structure.

Cause And Treatment Of Body Pain

Cause And Treatment Of Body Pain

Body Pain

Pain is an unpleasant sensation in the body that is triggered by the nervous system. The onset of body pain can occur suddenly or slowly, depending on many factors, (e. G. Environmental, biological, emotional, cognitive, etc.) each individual is the best judge of the severity and frequency of his or her body pain.

Types of body pain & causes of body pain
There are generally two types of body pain: acute pain and chronic pain.

Acute body pain
Acute body pain results from an illness or event, such as injury or surgery. It generally occurs suddenly, then gradually diminishes or stops on its own or with medical treatment. Acute pain can range from mild to severe, and may last for weeks or months. If treated properly, acute body pain will subside within six months. If left untreated, acute pain may lead to chronic pain.

Chronic body pain
Chronic body pain is pain that persists over time and may have no apparent cause, even after an injury has healed or an illness has subsided. Chronic pain can persist for weeks or even years. Sufferers of chronic pain may find it debilitating, resulting in loss of sleep and inability to function normally.

Important: if you or someone you know suffers from acute or chronic body pain, make sure to see a medical professional for diagnosis and treatment options. Medication should be used as directed.

How common is back pain?
According to the centers for disease control and prevention, back pain is second only to headache as the most common medical complaint in the united states, and is the second leading cause of missed workdays. Each year, 80% of adults below age 50 experience back pain at least once, and the majority will have multiple occurrences. Back injury is the number one occupational hazard in the u. S.

Back or body pain can have any of a number of causes
In addition to causing acute pain, some of these things can also cause more serious back injuries that require medical attention. Causes include ligament or muscle strains or sprains, muscle spasms, or arthritic or swollen joints.

Things that can cause strains, sprains, or spasms include:

  • Poor posture
  • Poor physical condition
  • Using muscles, ligaments, or joints for activities for which they're not conditioned or of which they're not capable
  • Excessive or improper lifting
  • Sudden awkward movements, like lifting or twisting too quickly
  • Overly strenuous physical activities

Degeneration of the spine, which often occurs with aging, can contribute to lower back pain, and may often lead to more serious conditions such as spondylosis (arthritis of the spine) or spinal stenosis (narrowing of the space around the spinal cord and nerve roots due to arthritis and bone overgrowth). If you think you may be suffering from more severe back pain, talk to your doctor.

Preventing back and body pain - you can find pain relief
Back and body pain may be reduced or prevented by eating a proper diet, managing weight, and increasing muscle flexibility and strength through exercise and physical conditioning. Even low-impact physical activities, such as walking or swimming, may help prevent body pain by increasing strength, flexibility, and endurance.

Some tips to promote back and body health and help prevent body pain:

  • Maintain good posture when sitting and standing
  • Use your legs to lift heavy objects
  • Carry heavy objects close to your body, and turn with your legs and not your waist to change direction
  • Maintain a healthy body weight. Excess weight can tax the body's muscles, especially the back muscles
  • Sleep on your side with bent knees. Consult your doctor about how firm your mattress should be
  • Acute back or body pain usually stops on its own or with body pain treatment.

Treating back and body pain — some suggestions:

  • Get plenty of rest, but don't stop moving. Especially with back pain, prolonged bed rest can actually make the condition worse. Generally, light activity can help treat body pain.
  • Cold/heat treatment — apply ice or a cold compress to the affected area for 15-20 minutes several times a day until spasms and acute body pain subsides. Then apply warm, moist heat (such as hot compresses or warm baths) to loosen tight muscles
  • Pain relievers — over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen or aspirin can be effective body pain treatments for individuals with back and body pain.

This is cervical pain (neck pain) and that's the reason the pain radiates until the shoulder blades. If you keep ice that would help and along side you can do hot water fermentation. You shall use cervical collar which would help you to reduce the radiating pain ie. Due to the nerve compression. Cervical spondylosis – chronic condition with radiating pain As your rightly said you have to go for traction and also you can do IFT. Please consult the near by therapist for quick relief. Since you have pain for more than 10 years it is suggestible to go for cervical muscle strengthening exercise. Use collar will definitely be helpful for him to maintain the good posture. And also cervical pillow can be used which might make you to have better posture of the shoulder neck and arm.

I am 40 years old female suffering from insomnia for last 10 years and on antidepressants. It was on & off in between but for last 2 years I was it taking any medication & faced withdrawal symptoms. Now last year I tried Homeopathic Med also for 6mths & this February I again consulted my psychiatrist & he put me on paroxetine. After taking 4 days of this medicine I got swelling around Achilles’ tendon with pain so I stopped that medicine. But swelling persists & doc said it’s not because of medicine. He referred me to rheumatologist who told me for ultrasonic therapy. After one month of therapy the situation was same Psychiatrist change my medicine to buspirone & in turn sertraline but both medicines gave me severe pulsating feeling with anxiety. So I stopped those medicines after 3 -3 days respectively. Now I am taking Mirtazapine & clonazepam but I am experiencing pressure creating in my brain. After 2months of this medication now I am getting same tendon pain in my both wrist & both sides of my neck. I have checked all the test (X-Ray, MRI,Doppler ,NCT, nuclear bone scanning RA, CRP, CCP, ESR, VitD,VitB12.) I am really worried no doc & no test is able to diagnosed the problem & my problem is aggravating. I can’t stop medicine as I’m insomniac & if I continue the problem also aggravate I request if any doctor can give me genuine explanation because for last 8 months I hv consulted 100docs & wasted so much money but no use. I felt all docs are waiting for patients to write medicines & making money without any concern about patients health. Very sad situation in our country. I am really tired. If any doc can give me genuine suggestions with little concerned & interest in my problem. I will be thankful for my whole life. Please save me. Thanks.

"for last 8 months I hv consulted 100docs & wasted so much money" this approach is wrong. You should consult only 2 doctors in whom you have trust one psychiatrist and another orthopaedic surgeon or rheumatologist and take treatment as per their advise.
