Cerebral Palsy

Is a Cerebral Palsy diagnosis permanent?

Understanding Cerebral Palsy

The label “Cerebral Palsy” is often used to describe several different movement disorders that manifest in early childhood. Although many medical authorities offer dire prognosis’ for children with these conditions, we offer said children a path to wellness. We do so by properly diagnosing the problem and prescribing a program carefully crafted to encourage brain growth and development.

Old-fashioned labels like “cerebral palsy” are not found in the literature of The Institutes, but rather the term “brain-injured.” This refers to the entire spectrum of brain injury from profound coma, paralysis, blindness, and deafness to mild learning problems and every kind and degree of brain injury in between.

Recovering from Cerebral Palsy

A proper diagnosis describes where the injury exists in the brain, the degree of the injury to the brain, and the extent of the injury to the brain. To be successful one must treat the brain, where the injury actually exists. The Institutes offers a program of neurological organization that parents carry out at home.

Our treatments for Cerebral Palsy encourage motor development and intellectual stimulation for increased brain growth.
