I will bet next month's mortgage on the statement, "They are BORINGLY fine." The problem occurred in the brain. You've probably had either the CT or MRI of the brain and that's what is really needed to assess the damage. Good luck with the rehab. ...Read more

My 4y/o has cp- physical issues only. He complains of leg, hip, &low back pain. What type of mattress would be best for him?

Memory or Select: I'm a spine specialist in sycamore but don't specifically treat patients with cp. I don't see why a young child with CP should have different mattress needs than the rest of us. I usually recommend cooled memory foam mattresses because they tend to be firm, but also allow a bit of contouring. A select number may be better for him so he can adjust the firmness a bit. ...Read more
