Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The brain is an organ composed of the central nervous system, where all life functions are regulated in the brain. One of them is the motor function of the limbs, both the upper and lower limbs. Motor function can be seen as an ability of movement, such as walking. Therefore, bleeding inside the skull that causes blood clots to form can cause pressure on the surrounding nerve tissue so that it is damaged. If the damaged neural network is a part that regulates the ability to move the lower limbs will cause loss of walking ability. This condition can be permanent, but it may not, depending on the location and mild damage.
Any motor nervous system disorders that cause the body can not move, must undergo gradual physiotherapy. Where the limbs are moved passively by the therapist or family. In addition to stimulating the ability to move actively on their own, also to train the muscles so as not to shrink (atrophy). Muscle shrink will actually make the ability to move increasingly difficult to improve.
Therefore, it is better to bring your mother to consult with a medical rehab specialist. Discuss the physiotherapy that your mother can go through and ask to teach you how to train your mother's limbs that you can do independently at home. Meanwhile, you can train yourself at home by moving each of your mother's leg joints passively and gradually. You can also do gentle massage to relax the muscles.
Thus hopefully useful.
