Ambika - The Fighter

Ambika Singh came to Disha in September 2009. Ambika had Cerebral Palsy with Spastic Diplegia. His condition made it difficult for him to sit or move from one position to another. He found it difficult to bear weight on both his lower limbs. Ambika underwent vigorous physiotherapy from the time of his admission in Disha in the form of stretching, balance and coordination exercises, aquatic therapy and Equino therapy. He also underwent facilitation techniques for movement control and gait training. Ambika even had to undergo surgery to correct his deformities, still the spasticity recurred the deformities. At present, due to continuous physiotherapy, he is able to walk with support, at home as well as outdoors. He even goes out to the park with the help of his walker. He performs few activities independently. He still shows spasticity to some extent but can control the movement for his basic needs.
