There is no cure for CP, but various forms of therapy can help a person with the disorder to function and live more effectively. In general, the earlier treatment begins the better chance children have of overcoming developmental disabilities or learning new ways to accomplish the tasks that challenge them. To this end Henry has already tried several of the treatments and therapies available.
Treatments available to Henry to date include: physiotherpy ; the use of Botox to relax contracting muscles; orthotic devices; hippotherapy; bowen therapy; swimming/hydrotherapy; hyperbaric oxygen treatment and Henry has also participated in the Brainwave programme.
We feel all of these treatments have had an impact on Henry's development to some degree. More information on the therapies and how Henry has responded can be found by following the links.
