: :A DOCTOR AT UCLA DID MY SONS HAMSTRINGS THREE YEAARS AGO AT UCLA. THEY ARE GREAT. THEY HAVE A PAIN MANAGEMENT TEAM YOU'LL BE IN CAST FOR SIX WEEKS. FOR ADDUCTOR THE LOCAL DOC HERE DID THAT. BAKERSFIELD. MY SON WAS IN CAST FOR SIXWEEKS AFTER. HE USES A WALKER. HE IS NINE AND HAD TWO ADDUCTOR SURGERIES. HE PLAYS SOCCER. THE TENDONS GET TIGHT. HIS ACHILLES HAVE BEEN DONE TOO. HE HAS HAD THE WORKS. I DID IT BACAUSE THE DOCTOR SAID HE WOULDN'T WALK TIL HE WAS SIX OR SEVEN HE WALKED AT THREE. HE SCISSORED REALLY BAD AND ARMY CRAWLED. I HAD TO LET THIS ABLE MINDED KID WALK. IF YOU THINK YOU NEED IT GET IT DONE THERE ARE GOOD ORTHOPEDIC SURGEONS AROUND. GOOD LUCK. DO YOU KNOW ANY ONE WITH DYSLEXIA AND PROCESSING PROBLEMS WITH C.P.?
I am 27 years old with mild cerebral palsy, and I have always had some processing problems, such as problems following a set of directions. I cannot listen to a list of things to do and remember past the first instruction. Needless to say, I get really lost driving. Although I have no problems reading, I am wondering if this deficiency is some form of dyslexia. I am also horrible with numbers, mathematics, and have had many a pizza delivery driver lost because I tend to transpose the numbers in my address. If you would like to discuss this further, please feel free to post, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
