Rohan's History

I had a preterm delivery. They are twins Rohan & Rhea. I realized that I had twins when I did my sonography at 2nd month. This was a little difficult for me to take as I was not prepared to handle two kids at one time and we also wanted only one child. I was advised bed rest at the beginning of 7th month as the babies had already come really down. I delivered by the end of 7th month it was normal delivery. I did not realize anything as Rohan was a happy active child until 7th month. As Rohan was not rolling, he was not giving proper eye-contact and not crawling so we realized that something was wrong. I was in complete denial mood and was not ready to accept the situation. But then we found a physiotherapist near our house who did physiotherapy for Rohan and he was improving very fast. Then at age 9 months he started getting infantile spasms and he was started with Gardenal.  After starting with Gardenal, he was all the time feeling very drowsy and used to feel pukish and also stopped eating well. His physiotherapist advised us to go to Dr. Asha Chitnis. Then we started physiotherapy with Asha Chitnis. We really had very bad experience. It was really very depressing and she really put us down. I do not know why she had this grudge on us. She even charged thrice the fees she charged others; fees was not really an issue though only thing we felt bad was that she was really very rude and she was very professional not really helping us. She saw Rohan for about 2 years or more.

Rohan

Rohan had also taken Neurotherapy, Pranic Healing, and Reiki.

 

Despite doing so many different treatments on Rohan, we did not find any improvement in him; instead he kept on becoming more spastic.  Somehow now when I look behind, I am a completely new person now. I am now so much spiritually inclined and my mind is now open to so many new possibilities.  I think Rohan has helped us grow as individuals and also as parents.  I & my husband, Vipul we both share a very strong bond. We are pillars to each other.  All the decisions for Rohan or otherwise are always taken after a mutual understanding.  We came to know about Dr. Rajul Vasa’s therapy through a parent.  The first day when we saw a little of Dr. Vasa’s therapy, I was so really impressed we immediately started with therapy.  When we took Rohan first time to Dr. Vasa on April 22, 2012, he was all skin and bone.  It seemed as if he had no muscles; one could not see even the chest expansion while breathing.  His skin was so yellow. His elbows were so much into flexion that they were not only contracted but appeared sort of deformed kind and straightening his elbow was a tough task.  He had no trunk control and his head would always remain down.  He was so much adapted to it that while crawling, he used to take support of his head to move forward.  He wore spectacles but it was of no use as his head would always remain down and there was no eye contact with the object.  When we used to make him stand, his legs went into scissoring and he had a foot drop which made it difficult for him to even stand with support.  His feet were absolutely without muscles, deformed, crooked in appearance.  His skin also had patches all over the body.

After Four Months of therapy changes we would see were:

  • Rohan’s Chest before had a lot of stiffness now we see a lot better breathing movement. His chest circumference has increased and muscles around chest have developed.
  • Rohan’s stiffness in the lower back has reduced tremendously. We also see dimples in lower back (sacral area) which were not there earlier.
  • We are teaching alphabets to Rohan for many years, but we were not getting results, now in these three months we completed all his capital letters and almost all small letters which is a big achievement.
  • Rohan’s spine was in ‘c’ curvature before now from his mid-back to lower back his spine is completely inside.
  • Rohan previously had severe constipation and had bowel movements every alternate day and that too after using some home remedies, otherwise he wouldn’t pass stools.  Now he passes stools regularly every morning without any medicines.

 After 8 months of therapy:

We are very very happy as there have been tremendous changes in Rohan.

  • His immunity has improved tremendously and his energy and initializing is superb.
  • Dog to cobra which we started with a lot of support now Rohan does it independently and beautifully with elbows extended.
  •  Camel exercise when we started was extremely painful and just did 5 – 6 times is now very easy for him we now do it ½ hour at a stretch.
  • His calf muscles are taking shape they are more bulky, healthier & relaxed.
  • Rohan goes into kneeling with least support and maintaining it with minimum support which was not possible earlier.
  • Rohan’s upper body shape has completely changed his body looks more athletic and his shoulders have become broad, his biceps have developed and we can see his six- pack abs.
  • He can do 150 pushups in 3 sets in a day.
  • 4 Inches of lumbar spine, the outward curve has gone inside; the spine now is no more scoliotic as before.
  • His abdominal muscles are developing.
  • His skin has changed from pale yellow to healthy pink.
  • Now he has begun with cycling and he loves to do that.
  • Now he hangs upon to rod by himself for few seconds; he has got so much strength in his arms and his joints have become so strong.
  • Rohan’s understanding has improved so much, he says he will do all the exercises by himself and he also understands that his body is getting better and flexible day by day with exercises.

We do believe that Rohan is a miracle child. That is why finally we got to know Dr. Vasa Concept. Rohan has improved so much in just 10 months of therapy with Dr. Vasa. We have not seen such kind of change in 9 years of any other therapy.

We are so grateful to Dr. Vasa and to her amazing therapy. Her therapy has worked on Rohan from all angles.  It has reduced his stiffness, his body has become more flexible, his vision has improved, his body has become muscular, he can speak more clearly and loudly, his skin color and texture has improved, he has got good trunk control now and he can sit straight.  His scoliosis of spine has diminished.  He has become more active and intelligent than before.  His memory has improved.  He now has began cycling which makes him more happy and we are also happy that though he is not allowed to walk as of now, he is able to make movement on cycle which has also provided a certain degree of freedom to him and also to us. Only because of Dr. Vasa, we could see so many changes in our child.  Now we are so confident that this is our final destination and path to Rohan’s independent living.  Thanks to Vasa Concept.
