Ans-

The major modalities are:

Therapy (both physio and occupational)
Tone reducing special plasters
Oral anti spastic drugs like tizanidine and baclofen
Botulin toxin (DYSPORT ) injections in the muscles which are spastic

Surgery in the form of
the adductor tenotomies/ lengthening for scissoring during standing/walking
the pronator lengthening or transfer in the arm to allow children to show their palm

rarely (less than 1%) can the child need dorsal rhizotomies, these are done on the spine and can reduce spasticity in children the side effect is that they can lead to permanent weakness in the muscles and that is why they are usually avoided
