But the patient could not care for himself such as eating, bathing, dressing, going to bathroom, moving the furniture, sit straight, stand and walk. According to the assessment, we designed a two months course of training schedule for the patient:

Acute Stage: Because of his restriction in movement, we improved the function of the affected body part by correct position therapy in bed and assisted movement exercises combined with acupuncture and physical therapy. We gave health and rehabilitation education to the patient and made sure that the patient and his family members understood his health condition and the prognosis focus such as how to cooperate with doctors. This stage took 1 week.

The details were as follows: we enhanced the movement of the shoulder girdle and the shoulder joint and improved the movement range of the pelvis group muscles in order to improve the muscle force of the limbs. Combined with the occupational therapy, the patient achieved a thorough improvement. This stage took approximately 5 weeks.
