STEM CELL THERAPY FOR CEREBRAL PALSY
Cerebral palsy (CP) comprises a group of disorders caused by brain damage during pregnancy, delivery or shortly after delivery. It is often accompanied by impaired movement, speaking, hearing, eyesight, lack of coordination and mental underdevelopment.
The occurrence of CP can be devastating and a source of stress for the family. The conventional therapies for CP can only offer limited benefits.
How stem cells can help cerebral palsy?
With the advancement of stem cell treatments in China, now you have a novel treatment option for cerebral palsy. Unlike the currently available conventional treatments, our stem cell regimen is different in the way that we target to repair the brain tissue damage itself and recover functions. Stem cell treatment focuses on the root of the problem and not just the symptoms.
Cell death occurs when cells are injured. However, these dead cells are surrounded by damaged and healthy cells. Stem cells have the potential to stimulate the healing of these injured cells by the secretion of cytokines, such as nerve growth factor to promote the body’s self-repair mechanism.
Objectives of stem cell treatment in cerebral palsy
The objective of the treatment is to repair the injured cell area around the lesion. This will lead to improved symptoms mainly in physique and movements. The majority of patients show improvements right after the first or second transplant. They continue to improve for about 6 months to 1 year, when the final results settle in. For CP patients the achieved results are permanent.
Potential Improvements of Stem Cell Therapy in Cerebral Palsy
The purpose of our stem cell treatment is to restore neurological function in the brain/spinal cord lesion area, thus, various kinds of improvement are possible after our treatment and our past patients have experienced the following:

Cerebral Palsy FAQs
Cerebral palsy is a group of neurological disorders that affect movement, muscle tone, and posture. It is caused by damage or abnormalities in the developing brain, typically before or shortly after birth. The condition manifests in various ways and can lead to challenges in motor skills, coordination, balance, and muscle control. Cerebral palsy is a lifelong condition, but with proper management, therapy, and support, individuals with cerebral palsy can live fulfilling and independent lives. It is important to note that each person’s experience with cerebral palsy may differ in terms of symptoms and severity.
The causes of cerebral palsy can vary, and in many cases, the exact cause is unknown. However, there are several factors that can contribute to the development of cerebral palsy:
Prenatal factors: Damage to the brain during pregnancy can occur due to infections (such as rubella), maternal health conditions (like high blood pressure), exposure to toxins or radiation, or genetic abnormalities.
Perinatal factors: Complications during labor and delivery, such as a lack of oxygen (asphyxia), umbilical cord problems, premature birth, or other birth traumas, can increase the risk of cerebral palsy.
Postnatal factors: Infections, head injuries, or medical conditions that occur in early infancy can also lead to cerebral palsy.
It’s important to note that not all cases of cerebral palsy have a clear identifiable cause. In some instances, it may be a combination of multiple factors, while in others, the cause remains unknown.
Cerebral palsy manifests as a range of symptoms affecting movement and posture. These include muscle stiffness, difficulties with coordination and balance, speech and communication challenges, sensory impairments such as hearing or vision problems, and potential intellectual or developmental disabilities. The severity and combination of these symptoms can vary among individuals with cerebral palsy, impacting their motor control and overall functioning. Early intervention, therapy, and support can help manage these symptoms and enhance the quality of life for individuals with cerebral palsy.
Cerebral palsy is typically diagnosed through a combination of medical evaluations and assessments of a child’s development. Diagnostic procedures may include a review of the child’s medical history, physical examination to assess movement and muscle tone, neurological examination to evaluate reflexes and coordination, and imaging tests such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to identify any brain abnormalities. Developmental assessments, including assessing motor skills, speech and language abilities, and cognitive functioning, help in determining if the child’s development is consistent with cerebral palsy. The diagnosis of cerebral palsy requires careful observation and collaboration between healthcare professionals, and it may take time to establish a definitive diagnosis due to the complexity of the condition.
The treatment of cerebral palsy aims to manage symptoms, improve quality of life, and promote independence. It often involves a multidisciplinary approach tailored to the individual’s specific needs. Treatment options may include physical therapy to enhance motor skills, occupational therapy to develop functional abilities, speech therapy to improve communication skills, medications to manage spasticity or other associated conditions, assistive devices such as braces or wheelchairs, and surgery in certain cases to correct structural abnormalities or alleviate spasticity. Other interventions, such as behavioral therapy, educational support, and supportive care, play vital roles in addressing the cognitive, emotional, and social aspects of living with cerebral palsy. Treatment plans are typically customized based on the individual’s unique circumstances to optimize their overall well-being and development.
