Many thanks.
Your friend baby had congenital stiffness of joint.They need the occupational and physical physiotherapy.If this not easily done then use the Boutox local injection to relax the tendon first and then physiotherapy.
It can be correct with surgeies,both by plaastic surgeon and orthopedic surgeon.All the good centres in India are doing nicely.
