VITALY: 6 YEARS OLD
Diagnosis: Cerebral Palsy
► CASE DESCRIPTION:
o Diagnosis: Cerebral Palsy
o Diagnosed Age: 1 month old
o History: left hemiplegia (with his left arm being affected more than left leg); spasticity. His muscles affected by spasticity had difficulty stretching out to keep up with bone growth – being shorter than they should be. This prevented a joint achieving its normal full range of movement. Persistent overactivity in spastic muscles caused incoordination of movements and abnormal postures. Vitaly used his extremities asymmetrically. Before Astra intervention he was treated by a pediatrician, a neurologist, and an orthopedist as well as other medical professionals, none of treatments gave him any relief from his symptoms.
Age at Treatment Start: 4 years old
Full Treatment Course: 2 years, including
o Courses (15-17 sessions) of the restorative and balancing outpatient therapy
o The rehabilitation period with home exercise and massage program between outpatient treatment courses
Intensive Outpatient Therapy: Bio-Energetic System Therapy [BEST] techniques, developmental exercises, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, herbal therapy, reflexology and polarity therapy
His condition was considerably improved after our treatment. The symptoms of hemiplegia diminished. His spasticity almost disappeared. Our outpatient treatment released muscular tension along with mental and emotional restrictions and increased full range of motion and flexibility.
