Acupuncture for Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a common condition involving loss of normal muscle movements and coordination. Typically the symptoms of cerebral palsy begin in early childhood. Many different causes exist for cerebral palsy, including genetic causes, infections, or vascular problems in the brain during development or birth.

Symptoms of cerebral palsy are generally lifelong, often requiring mobility assistance and assistance with activities of daily living. In addition to these supports, our clinic provides treatments which can help to reduce some of muscular pains and weakness that patients may experience. Many of our patients with cerebral palsy have experienced significant benefits from our treatments.

Acupuncture research at Harvard Medical School and many other institutions around the world have determined that acupuncture has profound effects on the body's physiology. These include a wide range of molecular and cellular effects on the immune system, nervous system, endocrine system, and growth-regulatory systems.

As an acupuncturist and holistic health practitioner, Dr. Windsor uses the latest research and technology to find solutions for patients with cerebral palsy. During treatment for cerebral palsy, it may sometimes be necessary to address another underlying condition or reason for the occurrence of symptoms.

We will create an integrated treatment strategy for your unique concerns and conditions. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you, and with your other medical providers, in order to help you achieve a the best outcome possible for your health and comfort. All of our offices are ADA accessible.
"In my experience, the treatment outcome for patients with CP can at times be very positive, with some individuals experiencing significant improvement such as regaining basic mobility. I have seen older adults with CP whose mobility improved from this type of treatment.

On occasion, I have received referrals from neurologists for treatment of patients with CP as young as 3 years old. I definitely believe this is a worthwhile treatment approach. However, it is good for the family to understand that any improvements will likely require more than a few sessions. In a successful course of acupuncture treatment for CP, modest benefits begin to appear around 5-6 treatments into a 10-week treatment plan."
