Individuals diagnosed with disorders like cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy lead a difficult life than others do. They have to constantly be dependent either on their support or on their parents.

Cerebral Palsy and Muscular Dystrophy can steal the child from basic fun activities and cause despair. But people diagnosed with the said syndromes are special, not because they have special needs but because they see the world in a different way and still love it.

These individuals have to face additional barriers every day and have difficulty even performing simple everyday activities. But to aid such people to go on with their lives without being dependent on another person, there are treatments for it.

But before we delve into treatments, lets talk briefly about Cerebral Palsy and Muscular Dystrophy;

Understanding Cerebral Palsy and Muscular Dystrophy

First of all, both cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy are disorders related to the brain. But they aren’t identical and are different with little similarities.

Muscular Dystrophy is a genetic disorder that is caused because of the absence of a gene coding for the protein dystrophin. This particular protein is very important and is responsible for the functioning of muscles. The absence of this protein, therefore, results in weakening and ultimately, dysfunctioning of different muscles of the body, which is basically Muscular Dystrophy.

Cerebral Palsy on the other hand is considered to be a neurological disease that directly doesn’t have any links to the genetic constitution of the individual. However, the absence of a certain group of genes is said to have caused the disorder. The said disorder is caused mainly due to brain injuries or any brain-related complications encountered during birth. Therefore, it is present since childhood.

Out of the two, muscular dystrophy is a progressive disease that keeps on weakening the muscles of the individual’s body. But cerebral palsy is caused because of the damage done during birth and does not progress further. The chances, therefore, of individuals suffering from muscular dystrophy entering well into their old age, is slim but not invisible.

Both these disorders have no cure but there are treatments that make it easier for the person to go by living their lives.

Treatment

Muscular Dystrophy and Cerebral Palsy have treatments to ease the suffering individual. There are mainly 3 types of treatments, Medication, Therapy, and Surgery.

Out of the 3 mentioned above, we are going to talk about Therapy and in therapy specifically, Occupational Therapy.

Occupational Therapy is a kind of therapy that helps the individual learn to perform daily activities with much ease. This therapy includes exercises and sessions. OT has helped people diagnosed with MD and CP, a lot many times.

This therapy aims at helping the person to feel independent and stronger. Everyday activities are easier for us to achieve but no for people with MD or CP, it is very difficult and requires a lot of energy. OTs aims at aiding them towards completing it without being dependent and fulfilling it on their own accord.

Occupational Therapy is a practical therapy that involves allowing the person to do these activities and learn from them. At Theracure, our skilled OTs first assess the individual and then plan various sessions and activities around the assessment.
