Case Study – Chromosomal Disorder: Mosaic Trisomy 22

ATTENTION: Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation is not a treatment or a cure; it is Neurological Rehabilitation. Doctors often use the word treatment to describe their interaction with a patient, not to imply a cure for a patient’s Injury, Illness or Condition. Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation uses traditional and unique neurological evaluations to perform before and after validation of neurological changes. Even though you may share the same symptoms as a patient mentioned on this website; each patient and their injury, illness or condition is unique. As with any form of rehabilitation; there is no way to predict or guarantee how you or anyone else will respond to neurological rehabilitation. Your results may vary.

ABSTRACT

SITUATION

March 2005 – An 8 year old female child born with a rare chromosomal disorder called Mosaic Trisomy 22. The affects of this disorder on the patient included growth retardation to left side of her body, short stature, and chronic upper and lower respiratory infection. Patient could not play or run because she lacked physical energy. Patient had a constant cough with excessive mucus production. Patient would easily fill a large tumbler with mucous through out the day. Patient could not sleep through the night due to coughing up mucus. Mother was told that her child would not live past 9 years of age.

PRESENTATION

When the patient first arrived to our office she had coughed up enough mucus to have already filled a large liter sized cup half way. She exhibited severe sinus and upper respiratory congestion and asthma. The patient was lethargic and non-active. The patient’s left arm and leg were visibly shorter than her right side and demonstrated an overall weakness of her limbs. She had no hair on her left eye brow and the hair on the left side of her head did not grow as well as the hair on the right side of her head.

REHABILITATION

The GRT LITE was used over her sinuses and lungs. She received Cranial Nerve and Motor Rehabilitation including GPOI and Allergy Desensitization. The patient began showing significant improvement after her first visit. To date the patient has received 78 Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation sessions over a 2 year period.

OUTCOME

After her first session, the patient was able to sleep all night with minimal coughing. She had never experienced a full night of uninterrupted sleep prior to this session. She has gained full strength to the left side of her body. Her left eyebrow has grown in and she now grows hair evenly on both sides of her head. Her activity levels have skyrocketed. She began taking gymnastic at school after 6 months of care. She is performing stunts that the other children her age could not.

FOLLOW-UP

The patient is now 11 years old. She has out lived her prognosis of death by two years so far. The patient is active in sports and comes approximately every two weeks for rehabilitation. Her breathing and sinuses flare up occasionally. I suspect this is due to allergens in her environment. But one Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation session usually returns her to normal.
