Thanks for the query,

I understand your problem

Let me tell you that mother requires re-evaluation for the cause of paralysis. It can be due to peripheral nerve problem, brain stroke, spinal cord problem. It could be due to many other causes and the exact diagnosis would require a detailed neurological evaluation which will include clinical and investigations. Once the cause of the problem is established we will be able to guide you better. Physiotherapy alone may not be the solution for each of the nerve related problem. Specific treatment can be advised only if the diagnosis is established.

Please consult a local neurologist

Hope this clarifies

Best wishes
