Hi my son is 10 and is really struggling in this hot weather we have been having lately. He has quadriplegic spastic cp, he is a wheelchair user. Are there any tips on how to keep him cool thus reducing the muscle spasms? Thank you

    Hi @Julieow
    Thanks for your post and welcome to our community. 

    I use ice packs on my knees/legs as it helps reduce any swelling as well. Are your son's spasms normally controlled?
