my three-month baby was born almost maturely in terms of time.he was delivered by cesarean.he had the neonatal respiratory distress syndrome first which led him 10 days in ICU,then he was noted having rigid arms and legs.I made him a CT brain scan, which shows he had been under oxygen-shortage condition according to the doctors.I do not know how serious his problem is.Though stiff and tight,his limbs do move more or less normally. now he is going through hyperbaric oxygen therapy and baby exercise and baby massage at the instruction of local doctors.i want to know how long time should my baby go with hyperbaric oxygen therapy which has received daily for 10 days. .and i also want to know whether baby exercise and baby massage is suitable for baby as young as three months,some friends told me i should leave my baby free of physical treatment until he is six months old. they even give me example in which the baby who was having hypertonia transformed into hypotonia(which is deemed a worse condition)after baby physical treatment.i hope i can get answer for the questions.
