Hi welcome to healthcare Magic

The above condition is called as cerebral palsy. It is a delayed neurological developmental and growth disorder.. There is no cure for it.. But rehabilitation centres are there , where they will teach you how to bring up child, to take care of daily activities... physiotherapy may helpful to make the baby walk.. It cannot be cured by medicines..
