Half a year is the best time to treat cerebral palsy
Cerebral palsy was discovered more than 20 years ago. The son of a film taken two years ago still had “atrophy of the cerebellum and the brain had calcification points”; two years later, the film appeared “large, no obvious abnormalities in the cerebellum”.
This incident occurred in a family named Zhou in the west of Hangzhou.
Zhou’s son, Xiao Zhou, started acupuncture treatment in May of the previous year. He applied more than 200 needles to the body twice a week.
After two years of treatment, Xiao Zhou’s brain returned to normal.
”In general, brain damage is irreversible, but this may not seem to be the case now.
“On Friday, Ruan Buqing, the chief physician of the Department of Acupuncture of the Provincial Tongde Hospital, told reporters that when he started acupuncture treatment for Xiao Zhou two years ago, he could not expect such an effect.
The tip of the tongue, which is always in the mouth, can be imitated. “Did you take the wrong film?
When taking the son’s examination film from the doctor, Mr. Zhou’s first reaction was “wrong.”
His son Xiao Zhou, the only child in his family, found cerebral palsy more than 20 years ago. The son who took a film two years ago was “Cerebellum atrophy, the brain has calcification points”, but now the film on hand tells him:No obvious abnormalities in the cerebellum. ”
The doctor gave him a positive answer.
Hearing the news, Mr. Zhou, 60, said that his heart was almost out.
The reporter met Mr. Zhou’s family in Dr. Ruan’s treatment room.
Although it was the first time to meet, Xiao Zhou greeted reporters generously, making people feel extra outgoing.
Mr. Zhou told reporters that every Friday, Xiao Zhou had to come for treatment. “Now the tongue is better, and it is smoother.
“Mother Zhou was surprised.
Xiao Zhou immediately plasma tongue came.
Mother Zhou said that such a simple movement was a big problem for him in the past.
Because of the fracture, the tongue is always retracted in the mouth, and the tip of the tongue is not visible at all.
Twice a week, more than 250 needles are put on the body each time. In May 2011, Xiao Zhou’s family found Dr. Ruan Buqing and started acupuncture treatment twice a week.
Ruan Buqing told reporters that there are 365 acupoints commonly used on the human body. At most, he needs to put more than 250 needles on Xiao Zhou’s body, from the top of his head to the center of his feet, and the front of his chest and back are silver needles.
Treatment begins with the back.
After the top spine had been fastened forty or fifty stitches, and then wrapped around the top of the head, chin, tongue, neck behind the ear . “He was very cooperative and relaxed, so he fell asleep soon.
According to Ruan Buqing, these needles were pulled out after half an hour.
Ruan Buqing said that at present, cerebral palsy is treated by Western medicine through rehabilitation training. Besides traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is also a method.
More patients with cerebral palsy have limb disorders, and limb disharmony is mainly due to poor meridians, and acupuncture can pass through the meridians to promote blood circulation.
Ruan Buqing is the eighth-generation descendant of Ruan’s Acupuncture. Before Xiao Zhou, too many patients with cerebral palsy came to him, but the children are usually before the age of 10, and the oldest is not 15 years old.
At first, Ruan Buqing didn’t expect this result, and he was also very surprised when he found that Xiao Zhou’s brain lesions disappeared.
Whether a miracle can be replicated in others, it is difficult to say whether such a miracle can be replicated in others, it is difficult to say.
Ruan Buqing said, “In general, the earlier the treatment of cerebral palsy, the better, the brain is not yet fully developed, and the brain tissue is highly plastic. Rehabilitation can stimulate potential brain cells.
“Xiao Zhou is an exception, both in terms of age and treatment.
Ruan Buqing said that Xiao Zhou’s condition is not the most serious. Among the patients he contacts, he is medium. The most important thing is that his coordination is particularly good.
”Compared to younger patients, he has no resistance to emotional touch and can fully enter the state during treatment.
Ruan Buqing speculated that this is one of the key factors affecting the treatment effect.
Li Haifeng, deputy chief physician of the Department of Rehabilitation, Zhejiang Medical College, told reporters that he has also encountered such imaging changes, but most of them are children. For 30-year-old adults, it is a bit incredible.
”In general, the chance of calcifications disappearing is very small; if there is a mild brain atrophy, early intervention during infancy and the chances of recovery are high.
Li Haifeng said.
The baby is about half a year old and has stunting to check whether he has cerebral palsy. Li Haifeng summarizes the factors that cause cerebral palsy into three categories: prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal.
Prenatal factors are related to the mother. Smoking, alcohol and drug use increase the risk of cerebral palsy in the baby; perinatal factors, including premature birth, low birth weight infants or gigantic infants are at high risk. After the baby is born, if there are problems such as neonatal seizures, aspiration pneumonia, intracranial hemorrhage, etc., it may also cause cerebral palsy.
”Cerebral palsy is not incurable.
Li Haifeng said that prevention can start with the first two factors, strengthen health care during pregnancy and perinatal period, and avoid various harmful factors to damage evolution.
Li Haifeng said that for high-risk groups, early intervention can reduce the incidence of cerebral palsy.
Normal children usually “look up in 3 months, sit in 6 months, and climb in 8 months”, And delay the child’s best treatment time.
”Half-year-old children are the best time for treatment. If they can intervene early, cerebral palsy is not irreversible.
Li Haifeng said that for many children, rehabilitation is a long battle, but insisting on treatment, many children can live as normal people when they grow up.
