Cerebral Palsy

Each year nearly 10,000 infants are born or acquire cerebral palsy.  It is estimated that nearly 764,000 adults and children in the United States have symptoms of cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy usually occurs at birth and results in damage to the part of the brain responsible for motor function.  The extent of the damage will result in symptoms ranging from mild to severe.

What is Cerebral Palsy

There are 4 main types of CP: spastic, ataxic, dyskinetic, and mixed.  Spastic is the most common and can impact extremities on the same side, both legs, or all extremities.  Many of these children will have challenges in addition to motor function: seizures and autism spectrum disorder.  These associated challenges can impact more than difficulty with motor control but can impact speech, vision, emotions, and proper development.       

Your Unique Role as a Caregiver and Individual

Cerebral palsy presents a unique set of challenges for the individual and caregiver.  At Revive we have a team that not only understands your symptoms, but identifies with the role of both patient and caregiver. Our goal is to create a strategic and comprehensive treatment plan to help you live better and love life more. We realize that when we improve the quality of life for the patient, this will improve the quality of life for the caregiver as well.  

How Revive Can Help

At Revive we specialize in providing treatment to the neurological regions affected by cerebral palsy.  Cerebral palsy impacts gross and fine motor coordination.  We utilize research-based diagnostics to evaluate how different areas of the brain are functioning.  

Your treatment can include balance, gait, and eye training; as well as hand-eye coordination, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), hyperbaric oxygen, diet, and supplements.  Repetitive TMS has been shown to reduce spasticity in cerebral palsy patients,

Eye training drives brain activation and growth. Research has shown that the utilization of eye movements activate multiple brain regions. Combining specific eye movements with visual stimulation allows us to strengthen targeted brain regions.

Beyond the neurological system, there are many factors that can impact the presentation of cerebral palsy: the immune system, diet, sleep, and stress (to list a few).  By integrating knowledge of the brain and influence of these factors, we can provide a comprehensive care plan designed uniquely for you.  

Our Unique Process for Your Unique Situation

We have created a unique process that is built to maximize time and results.  To reach your personal healthcare goals, it is imperative that your physicians and care providers precisely know your individual story and needs.  Your individual goals are the focal point of the comprehensive treatment plan which is based off your exam, diagnostics, and lab results.  Your treatment plan is designed specifically for you and is not a protocol.

This plan is executed over 10 days.  Many patients see measurable improvement over the time in our office.  When you leave, we create a plan to help you continue on your journey.  Our goal is to see each patient continue to build upon the initial results they achieved in office.
