Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist 's  Response
From your explanation I realise there should be on going damage to brain. Get mri done as early as possible and do check with neuro physician and start the medication to control the on going damage. As well take enough of anti inflammatory to reduce the on going damage. And later start the physical therapy to improve the condition further.
Hope this will be useful to you. Have care.
