Reason for coming:
Nathan was born as one of twins in a premature delivery. While Nathan's twin was going through her milestones, their parents noticed a delay in Nathan's development. Aside from delay of motor development since birth, by the age of 2 years and 6 months the delay in Nathan's speech became evident, and he was diagnosed as a Cerebral Palsy patient. Due to Nathan's short attention span, learning was becoming more and more difficult.
CONDITION BEFORE TREATMENT:
Determined to get the best options available for their son, Nathan's parents have been investing in different comprehensive therapies since the twins'birth, and when Nathan turned 4 they have gathered enough information on Cell Therapy Center and decided to bring Nathan to Beijing Puhua International Hospital hospital.
Nathan's motoric function is better than many CP patients we have treated in the past. He is mobile, and can use his upper limbs properly. Nathan can only walk on his toes and needs his mother assistance in all the daily chores.
Nathan's major problems, apart from dysfunctional motor abilities, are his communication skills. Nathan does not engage in conversation, and he does not always cooperate with instructions. Although Nathan sings and reads with his mother, he has a problem playing within a group of children or maintaining a normal responsive conversation.
METHOD OF TREATMENT: Cell Therapy injections, neural cells activation program, combined with Traditional Chinese Medicine and extensive rehabilitation therapy.

Nathan symptoms have gradually improved after Cell Therapy treatment. Nathan's mother has been writing about their experiences in a blog, which you can review here: http://nathan2china.wordpress.com/
After Cell Therapy treatment, Nathan's concentration has greatly improved. His social communication skills have improved.
While not greeting people prior to treatment, Nathan now occasionally positively greets his mom and the medical staff in charge of his care.
The control of his trunk and legs is better than before. Nathan's gait is more stable now, as are his knees and hips flexors. Nathan's walking has improved, and he is now able to step on his foot (flat, no toe walking). When ascending stairs, it is easier for Nathan to lift up his legs with a straighter posture.
Going back home Nathan's mother Chris is going to continue working hard on his therapy in order to keep gaining improvements for Nathan.
We wish them a lot of luck and many new achievements!
