Welcome to Jeevaniyam Ayurveda Hospital
Every child is unique and beautiful. A child with cerebral palsy is as unique as a child without the same disease. Raising a child is no simple task. But many believe that a child with cerebral palsy can become a burden to his or her parents. Even though the child may require extra care, he or she can never be a burden. Cerebral palsy can affect muscle tone, motor skills, and coordination. It can also affect bladder and bowel control, and the patient’s ability to speak. With proper care and attention, it is possible to find relief from the condition.
