A 61-year-old male asked:
Disclaimer

my daughter had a head trauma during birth which led to bleeding in some parts in brain which caused paralysis in the right limbs, what can be done?

Physical therapy: Physical therapy is the most helpful thing you can do for her. Depending on the size and location of the bleeding, some or all of her weakness could possibly get better. In most cases, it may not be normal but may become usable/functional with physical therapy.

Physical Therapy: There are no cures for traumatic brain injury. The only option is to work with physical and occupational therapists in an attempt to accommodate for the neurological deficits. Young children can overcome such injury more than adults due to the plasticity of the nervous system at a young age.
