welcome to healthcaremagic
most probably your daughter is having paralysis of muscles due to brachial plexus injury or due some other reason
how old is your daughter
treatment should be continued in the form of physiotherapy to keep the joints remein supple and muscles are not wasted
in 3 to 6 months time if no improvement bay to be examined by various specialists
surgery on the nerves and tendon transfers are considered
a full recovery may be expected in most cases in 6 month's time
the baby not showing improvement by that time has not good prognosis
please contact your doctor for proper guidance and follow up
hope your baby be all right
