German doctors to treat children with cerebral palsy with acupuncture therapy

In the Children's Rehabilitation Center of Georgia, German doctors have begun providing acupuncture to young patients suffering from cerebral palsy, as they expect major improvements in those who undergo the sessions.

Original source

 - A group of German doctors have arrived in Tbilisi to help children suffering from cerebral palsy by treating them with acupuncture.
The treatment will be free for socially unprotected people and doctors predict a sharp improvement for those candidates who undergo the course.

 - After therapy, if a child is able to turn over, take a toy in his hands and so on, then this can be considered a good result," said Gudrum Mick, a physiotherapist, said at the presentation.

 - Two year-old Mariam was unable to move, but after undergoing acupuncture therapy she started moving and was able to turn on to her back.

 - An improvement could be seen after one course as first she started first crawling, then she could sit without anybody's help, and now she is fully recovered," Mariam's mother told the newspaper.
The Minister of Health Lado Chipashvili along with some well-known Georgian neurologists attended the presentation, although they refrained from making any judgements on the treatment.

 - However the head of the center's neurological clinic Natela Tatishvili praised the approach.

 - "I like such kinds of alternative treatment and this one is widely used in some cities in Germany, so I welcome it," she told reporters.

 - The minister of health also advocated trying new methods, but he also advised people to remember that there is no such thing as a miracle cure.

 - "I want to advise parents not to place exaggerated hopes in this treatment; I would also ask doctors to recommend it only if they truly believe that it will have a result," he said on Tuesday.

 - The German doctors will stay in Georgia for a week and before leaving they will train their Georgian colleagues to be able to continue the treatment on their own."
