Hi,
Thanks for placing your query here.
I can appreciate your concerns.
While there is no reversal of this condition, individual quality of life can be greatly improved.
As each person will respond differently, and will have different needs, a combination of therapies is beneficial.
Physical therapy including stretching, strengthening, and mobility training are often provided to improve flexion and range of motion to increase mobility. Occupational therapy (may also include casting, splinting of affected joints) can include training in ADL (activities of daily life) and fine motor skills as well as addressing psychosocial and emotional implications of living with a disability.
Individually tailored orthopaedic correction is often beneficial.
In summary the management is multi disciplinary & a good hospital in north india is SIR GANGARAM HOSPITAL,NEW DELHI.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Wish him speedy recovery.
