Patient

Q: My grandson is now seven and a half and he was born premature and did not have any noticeable problems until he started walking he was a late walker couldn't keep his balance walks on toes doctors diagnosed him with cerebral palsy they have had him braces and casts nothing seems to have helped then I asked the doctors to tell me what would prove he has cerebral palsy and they said they could do a EEG and they did one and found no scarring on the brain they admitted they were baffled but have no idea where to go from here his muscles are tight in ankles and calves but strong as a ox if only I could get some answers maybe he could run and play like other kids his age he has such a great spirit but if there is something I can find to help him I would be so grateful thanks for your time
