After three months of our intensive treatment there was no evidence of motor delay. Furthermore, the symptoms of spasticity and hemiparesis were completely eliminated.
She began to use her arms and legs symmetrically. We continued the girl’s treatment, and she was growing and developing according to her age, i.e. timing of common age-related activities such as sitting, crawling, standing, walking, and manipulating small objects was about normal. At 11 months she began to speak simple words. At the age of 15 months the symptoms of cerebral palsy completely disappeared.
