Hi there ...

Thank you for your question ...

Cerebral palsy can be managed with medicine which help to control the symptoms of cerebral palsy and help to minimize the complications related to CP .

Medicine often used to treat spasticity are Baclofen , Valium and Dantrolene .

Physical therapies , occupational therapies , speech and language therapies help to improve symptoms of patients .

As far as surgeries are concerned usually orthopedic surgeries are indicated in those who develops contractures and deforMities secondary to CP , There is no role of surgery to treat CP .

Sometime surgeons cut the nerve that cause spasticity is one of the option .

These are options to manage CP.

Regards .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .
