Ever since Little described this condition in 1853, its treatment has undergone a marked transition from indifference to a planned multidisciplinary approach to the problem. The treatment of cerebral palsy has generally been in the hands of orthopedic surgeons, physiotherapists and other members of the rehabilitation team. Till recently there was an attitude of defeatism in respect of dealing with the basic defect in the central nervous system. Very often the various orthopaedic operations failed because of the unrelieved hypertonus, abnormal movements like dystonia or athetosis and low intelligence. The object of this presentation mainly is to evaluate the treatment of hypertonus and/or abnormal movement in cerebral palsy, so as to help the patient’s future management either by surgery or other means.
