  1. Hi
    First of all its not related to her father, you should do physical therapy which is the only option you have, you should also try to show less care to try force her to depend on her self, sorry but there is no drug that can help
    Good Luck

  2. You can help her by taking her to physiotherapy , a physiotherapist specialized in pediatric rehabilitation can do her a lot of exercises to strengthen her core muscles and help equilibrium and trunk control through approximation techniques and so on.
    You should learn these exercises to repeat them at home to help her development quickly.

  3. Hi..
    Thanks for the query..

    Hypotonia is not a disease in itself but can be a sign of any underlying illness..
    Delayed milestone is also due to this..
    So my suggestion is to consult a Paediatrician and get evaluated and a thorough clinical examination and investigation as per suspected cause can be done..
    Once the underlying cause is pin point ted then treatment of the same can gradually improve the symptoms..

    I would like to add that Physical therapy to improve muscle strength,balance and co-ordination, speech therapy can help in improvement..
    Also another therapy that is Neuromuscular electrical stimulation can help in improving Neuromuscular control and coordination..
    Hope this helps..
