Developmental disability in a growing child limits the attainment of certain functions such as motor, communication, perpetual and cognitive skills. Cerebral Palsy (CP) is one such developmental disability that hinders the movement and activities of daily living of the affected child. In order to treat this disorder, several interventional tools are available which has its own pros and cons. Repetitive Transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a new noninvasive tool employed for the treatment of CP due to its neuromodulatory effect that facilitates motor memory formation, motor performance and motor learning in individuals. In this report, a promising effect of rTMS therapy is discussed wherein a wheelchair ridden patient was able to crawl, kneel and move after two rounds of treatment procedure.
