Hope shines for cerebral palsy patients
ALLAHABAD: Benefits of orthopedic selective spasticity control surgery (OSSCS) were highlighted in a function held in the city on Monday. The function was organised on the occasion of World Cerebral Palsy Day which is observed on October 3.

Detailing on the benefits of OSSCS, Dr J K Jain said: "It's like a medical miracle that children suffering from the stinging, distressing disease of cerebral palsy have been blessed with a ray of new hope." He added that Cerebral Palsy is a condition of damaged brain that inhibits the normal functioning of the motor nerves and leads to disablement in maintaining body posture.

Children afflicted with cerebral palsy depict symptoms of late motor development skills and may also be hearing, speech and visually impaired accompanied by other associated diseases. The very utterance of the two words "Cerebral Palsy" conjures up images of these poor little souls striving to get the fundamental things of life straight.

Regarding OSSCS, the doctor said that the efficacy of this surgery has been witnessed in not only younger children, but among older groups as well, kindling rays of optimism and prospects for the young people. Research studies till now had been focusing on proffering treatment for cerebral palsy to the affected children as early in life as possible as brain deformities, at such beginning stages could be molded and trained to one's advantage more easily.
