The liver and spleen were normal, there was severe muscle atrophy of the shoulder girdle, pelvic girdle, arms and legs. The knee joints and elbow joints could not stretch with the angle around 165 degrees. There was mild ankle joints inversion,  feet drop and poor movement ability.

Nervous System Examination:
Patient was alert and his mental status was good. He had clear speech but with a stammer, memory, orientation and calculation abilities were normal. Both pupils were equal in size and round, diameter of 3.0 mm, react well to light, eyeballs can move freely and there was mild horizontal nystagmus. Bilateral forehead wrinkle is symmetrical, he could close eyes powerfully, the bilateral nasolabial groove depth is the same, tongue is in middle position, showing teeth is normal and the soft palate can lift as normal. The pharyngeal reflex was normal, neck muscle power was fine and he could shrug normally. The right arm distal side muscle power was 3+ degrees, proximal side muscle power was 3- degrees, the adductor muscle power was 3+ degrees, abductor muscle power was 3- degrees, the grip force was 5 degrees. The left arm distal side muscle power was 3- degrees, proximal side muscle power was 2+ degrees, the adductor muscle power was 2+ degrees, the abductor muscle power was 2+ degrees with the hand grip force being 5- degrees. His  proximal side leg muscle power was 2+ degrees, distal side was 3 degrees. The muscle tone of the four limbs was low, he could roll over and sit up himself but with difficulty. He could walk a little with an unstable gait and could not stand up from sitting position. His 4 limbs tendon reflex and abdominal reflex could not be induced by examination.

After the admission he received 3 cell regeneration treatments(neural stem cells and mesenchymal stem cells) to repair his damaged muscle cells, replace dead cells, nourish cells, regulate his immune system and improve blood circulation. This was done with rehabilitation training.     

After 12 days treatment his breathing function improved and his blood oxygen concentration improved from 95% to 98-99%. The heart rate decreased and the muscle power of his limbs was stronger.
