Dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy

Dr. Nikonov
Dr. Nikonov

I am a myologist and I am the only one who has been dealing with rehabilitation of children with dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy for over 30 years. In this article, I am going to share my knowledge. As a result, you will receive an answer to your question: “Why Dr.Nikonov manages to rehabilitate children with this form of  infantile cerebral palsy, whereas other health specialists fail?”


As long as dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy is one of the severest and underinvestigated forms of infantile cerebral palsy, I had to search for the answer to this question by myself: “What happens in muscle cells of such children?”. To answer this question, I had to explore with electron microscope. Examining the muscle fibers in a child aged 11 months, suffering from dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy, restricted movements, I saw that the muscle fibers had partially lost their even distribution of nuclei and there appeared a swelling between them (see image below).

Explanation to the image (legend):

A muscle can move only if there is an energy in it.

The energy needed for movement in cells is produced by mitochondria, located near the nuclei. When the swelling pushes the nuclear out to the periphery, then the mitochondria move after the nuclear. Some part of muscles remains without energy, however, blood promptly brings nutritional substances.

I decided to check myself and with the help of electron microscope, I studied muscle fibers of a child with dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy, who was  2,5 years old and who was not rehabilitated by me. Muscle fibers changed for the worse:

  1. There increased the amount of fibers with partial absence (red).
  2. Nuclei located chaotically and go with fiber decondensation sites (dark).
  3. Between the fibers, the swelling intensifies (white).

If to remove swelling, which pushes out the nuclei and mitochondria, then they will return to their initial position in the center of the nuclear. As the result, a cell will obtain enough energy to move.

I was interested in the question when the swelling in muscles begins. I addressed professor S.V.Saveliev, who was working at the Russian Academy of Sciences holding a position of the head of neural development laboratory.

9th week of intrauterine growth

It turns out that by the 9th week of intrauterine growth, at the beginning of muscles formation the embryo may be found the insignificant swelling sites.

Neurologists consider the brain damage or abnormal development in fetal period and within the newborn period.

My opinion: there is no evidence proved by ultrasound imaging and magnetic resonance tomography. The neurologists have a hypothesis, which is based on the data of the 19th century. According to these data, there have been described about 400 biological factors, affecting a healthy growth of fetus, however, the role of each factor is insufficiently clear. My point of view is based on data, explored with electron microscope and practice of rehabilitation of children according to my method.

From the standpoint of neurologists among the antenatal reasons for the development of dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy there are specified the following:

My opinion: a pregnant woman gives a birth to a child, being preliminary treated with antibiotic drugs. Neurologists talk about chemical factors:

My opinion: placenta is a filter for chemical substances, which cannot pass through the barrier.  Neurologists have stale data, as long as it is known that during meals the human body, including fetus, produces alcohol. Because of these reasons, people relax after meals.

Neurologists consider that serious stress across pregnancy and psychological traumatizing of mother lead to dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy.

My opinion: the muscle system of fetus is formed independent of mother’s emotional experience. Fetus is somebody else's organism, not a clone. Spiritually the mother and the child are inseparable, but not physically.

Neurologists mark that intracranial birth trauma sustained in the course of mechanical action on fetus is considered a critical factor for infantile cerebral palsy etiology.

My opinion: birth trauma sustained as a result of any physical action on fetus, usually is a result of defect of intrauterine growth of fetus.

You know perfectly well a clinical picture of your children, however, to promote a website I will write the way it is required for the website promotion, but with my comments:

Dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy is characterized by:

Many children with dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy have preserved the intelligence functions. They often suffer from emotional-volitional disorders.

Neurologists, consider that there are damaged extrapyramidal system structures and acoustic analyzer.

My opinion: ultrasound imaging and magnetic resonance tomography do not show any changes of extrapyramidal system. The changes of acoustic analyzer take place independent of extrapyramidal system and may be related with change of liquid viscosity inside the ear.

There are distinguished athetoid and dystonic forms of dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy. Spasticity is a basic clinical symptom in case of dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy, which can be met in more than 80% of cases.

Neurologists consider that spasticity is a “movement disturbance”, which is a part of upper motor neuron lesion syndrome that is characterized by speed dependent increase of muscle tone and is accompanied by the increase of tendon reflexes as a result of hyperexcitability of stretch receptors.

My opinion: spasticity is confused with an edema between the muscle fibers. Because of swelling there occurs pushing the mitochondria out from the cells center. Muscle fibers are deprived of the energy to move.

As long as neither neurologists nor rehabilitation professionals know how to rehabilitate a child with dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy, the children with such diagnosis suffer from complications, which are formed mainly during late residual stage. From the standpoint of orthopedists, they include the formation of arthro-muscular contractures, deformation and shortening of limbs, incomplete dislocation and joint dislocation, scoliosis.

My opinion: as long as I am the only one who deals with the removal of swelling in muscle fibers, the swelling in such children increase. The increase of swelling in muscle fiber decreases muscle stretch and there is got an impression of contractures:

Under the electron microscope, there are muscle fibers of a 5-year-old child, suffering from dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy.

Treatment of dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy

My opinion: I am rehabilitating children with dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy by applying an emendic procedures. The emendic procedure is the emendic massage of fixed swollen muscle and exercises in the form of stretching. The emendic procedure is focused on the removal of muscle swelling, creation of conditions for returning of nuclei and mitochondria to the center of muscle fiber and creation of conditions for homogeneous distribution of energy for activity of the actin and myosin  proteins , which lengthen muscle fibers.

Neurologists: in case of infantile cerebral palsy treatment there is applied a complex approach.  Neurologists and rehabilitation professionals refer to the important stages not only the performance of the complex rehabilitation treatment courses within the limits of medical institution but also further implementation of recommendations concerning the level and nature of physical exertion, use of rehabilitation equipment at home.

Complex rehabilitation is focused on removal of disorders, developing as the result of child’s brain damage and minimization of secondary biomechanical deformations. In case of dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy, the neurologists consider pathogenic effect on the cause of infantile cerebral palsy impossible.

In other words, the neurologists consider this diagnosis an incurable form of infantile cerebral palsy.

Besides the antispasmodic medication taken in the course of treatment of the disease, the neurologists prescribe the supporting medicine. There may include antiepileptic drugs, m- and n- anticholinergic drugs, dopamine agonists taken because of dystonia and hyperkinetic disorders. The neurologists also apply nootropics, vasoprotective and microcirculation correction agents, medication that has metabolic effect, vitamins and vitamin-like substances. The use of these medicinal products is focused on correction of co-morbidity in case of infantile cerebral palsy.

My opinion regarding the prescription of these medical products, which, by the way, are recommended by the World Health Organization: the main problem for the use of these medical products is the absence of investigations of their effectiveness in case of dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy. In other words, the medical products are useless. You may learn about their side effects, by reading package leaflets to them.


To the alternative methods of treatment and rehabilitation of patients with dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy the neurologists refer:

My opinion: the alternative methods are a game involving children with dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy and their parents.

Information about emendic massage


It is possible to rehabilitate a child with dyskinetic infantile cerebral palsy only by application of emendic method, developed by me. The parents, who want to rehabilitate their child are taught endemic procedures by me and then are able to rehabilitate their child by themselves. Important: parents’ will is a must!
