Is CME appropriate for all medical conditions?

No  – although CME is appropriate in the vast majority of cases, the technique cannot stop the progression of degenerative diseases such as muscular dystrophy or spinal muscle atrophy (although it may help in prolonging existing levels of function).  It also cannot restore function from paralysis resulting from spinal cord injury.  Children with osteogenesis imperfecta should be evaluated on a case by case basis as they may be too fragile for CME.  CME is highly effective in the treatment of cerebral palsy, PVL, IVH, brain injury, brain malformation, genetic anomalies, abnormal muscle tone, etc.”
