Sir, My daughter was born premature in 7th month and i was not told about her CP condition at that time.
later at about 1 1/2 year she was diagnosed with mild spasticity. now she is 3 1/2 year old
she does toe walking but cannot move backwards showing lack of balance.
since then she is going thru physiotherapy under Dr. XXXXXXX Mukherji's treatment @ Pacific Point Pain Clinic. Ballygunge Circular Rd.
though she has shown a bit improvement but still we do not want to miss any opportunity towards her wellness
and kindly suggest a good MRI center

It requires a greater detail of events and history about your child and her present condition. But I was hoping that she is coping better than before with your words. If she is able to walk on toes it sounds to be good.

The best place for CP and spastic disorder in Kolkata are the following:

Indian Institute of Cerebral palsy
P - 35/1, Taratola Road,
Kolkata - 700 088
Phone: +033 2401 3488/0240

You will have multidisciplinary approach for patients here.

Institute of Neurosciences is also a good place.
Institute of Neurosciences Kolkata (I-NK)
185/1, AJC Bose Road, Kolkata - 700 017
Tel : (+91 33) 2286 9999, 2286 7094/95 Fax : (+91 33) 2286 7097
24x7 Helpline : (+91) 0000 0000 (O.P.D)
They have an MRI facility there.

Hope it helps.
