She's right! My son had the same thing happening on his left

side. After just a few weeks of doing the correct stretches, he

started using his left side. I'm just saying that we saw him getting

worse for 6 weeks and I hit my breaking point and got referred to a top

pediatric PT in our area at our hospital and immediately we were told

we were not stretching the correct side and that is why he wasn't

improving. Once we started the correct exercises within a few weeks he

was fine. We also saw the facial asymmetry get worse through the

course of that. Good luck with the DOC Band, you should rest easier
