Cerebral Palsy

Baby Angelica was brought for treatment when she had severe cerebral palsy

We received baby Angelica [not real names] at our Jivadhara center in India when she was 2 and a half months shortly after being diagnosed with severe/spastic cerebral palsy.

Spastic cerebral palsy is a developmental disorder caused by damage to the brain before birth, during delivery, or within the first few years of life.

By the time we received her, she couldn’t make a sound, turn her head or even feed.

Our Doctors started her on treatment and the results…well, read on.

 

Birth History

  • Birth weight – 3.5 kg
  • H.C- 35.8cm
  • Baby cried immediately after birth

  • Baby had Hyperbilirubinemia which is a condition in which there is too much bilirubin in the blood. When red blood cells break down, a substance called bilirubin is formed. Babies are not easily able to get rid of the bilirubin and it can build up in the blood and other tissues and fluids of the baby’s body.

Diagnosis

This is baby Nissy, [not real name for her privacy] she was brought to our center in India after being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (moderate level) due to Neonatal meningitis at 7 months.

This little angel was born prematurely and was moved to the neonatal intensive care unit.

A few days after, she got meningitis, a dangerous infection that causes inflammation of the meninges.

Meninges are the membranes that cover the spinal cord and brain.

Condition before Treatment

By the time she was brought, she couldn’t hold her neck, couldn’t turn over, and had mild hydrocephalus, a condition where water builds up deep within the brain cavities.

Her forehead was also abnormally big.
