We have a simple, natural and effective treatment for post polio residual paralysis which can enhance the strength and control of muscles, joints and nerves of the affected limbs. This proven treatment guarantees improvement in polio affected limbs without surgery and medicines.

The world has almost reached the target of “Eradicating polio virus”. But it may take one more century to come out of the sights of after-effects of polio if we don’t treat post polio residual paralysis.


Observation based research is done on a polio affected leg for more than 30 years. The research is done to find out exactly what happens in a polio affected leg from the time polio virus attacks a child and till overall growth of the child stops. All the changes in the muscles including pain, weakness, numbness, strength, growth and ability/inability to move are observed carefully and their causes are analysed every time. Huge repetition of changes and their causes in 30 years (10000 days) has helped to derive the cause-effect theory (treatment) of polio (post polio residual paralysis).

Experiments (polio treatment) are done on polio affected leg of a 35 years adult. Hip and knee joints of the leg were affected by polio (poliomyelitis) at age of 3. As this treatment involves only simple movements, meditation is used to observe nerve activity in the leg and other connected body parts. Effect of treatment on each muscle is felt inside daily and results are seen visually after treatment.

The following tables show results of 4 years of polio treatment. The muscle strength is measured on a scale of 5 according to Muscle Strength Grading Scale as follows:

Muscle strength Description
0 No contraction
1 Visible/palpable muscle contraction but no movement
2 Movement with gravity eliminated
3 Movement against gravity only
4 Movement against gravity with some resistance
5 Movement against gravity with full resistance

Changes in muscle strength

Muscle description Muscle strength earlier Muscle strength after 4 years
Hip joint: Front muscle 2 4
Hip joint: Outside muscle 2 4
Hip joint: Inside muscle 2 3
Hip joint: Back muscle 2 3
Knee joint: Front muscle – Sitting position 0 2
Knee joint: Front muscle – Standing position 0 3
Knee joint: Front muscle – Sleeping position 0 1
Knee joint: Back muscle – Sitting position 3 4
Knee joint: Back muscle – Standing position 3 4
Knee joint: Back muscle – Sleeping position 3 4

Muscle growth

Muscle description Earlier After 4 years
Calf circumference 25cm 28cm
Thigh circumference 26cm 42cm
Behind hip joint X X+20cm


In the above treatment, there are multiple 3 to 6 months of planned gaps in the treatment to observe what happens when treatment is stopped. The results are extraordinary. When a muscle is treated till its corresponding nerve is activated, it (the muscle) grows in size and strength without further treatment.

The above results can be achieved in 2 years if continuous treatment is given without gaps.

The approach

The treatment is completely a natural process. It uses only Yoga techniques. Surgery and medicines are not used. It takes few months for the patient to feel reasonable change. It takes about a year or two to show significant visual difference depending on the effort spent.

The treatment involves 3 steps:

  1. Reverse posture technique

The active joints and muscles of a disabled person are at high risk of early wear out because of the imbalance of the body. Yoga defines reverse posture for every posture and movement of all the joints. These reverse postures reduce strain caused by the actual postures.

In this step, we identify all the postures and affected joints of disabled person while sitting, standing, sleeping and moving. And define a set of reverse postures for each joint. The patient is supposed to stay in reverse posture whenever possible or at a predefined interval.

This step is very important for all humans (able or disabled) to reduce wear out of joints.

  1. Stimulating active or live muscles surrounding the disabled joint

When a major muscle of a joint is disabled, the person stops using the joint or putting pressure on the joint. With long inactivity of the joint, all the muscles surrounding the joint never contract thereby lacking blood flow and nutrients. These muscles become very weak and unusable.

In this step, we do simple exercises consciously to increase blood flow and nutrients to the weak muscles.

  1. Stimulating disabled muscles and nerves

After achieving enough strength for surrounding muscles in step 2, we do few special exercises for disabled (or so called dead) muscles. Observation/consciousness is very important in this step. Only the patient can feel the minute change. So we encourage the patient to remember and record the movement that gave little change. The movements that caused change drive future exercise plans of the patient. In this step, a conscious nerve activation process is also performed by stimulating the connected muscles.

Scientific view of the treatment

When polio virus attacks a child, it suspends nerves of few joints. It does not kill nerves as medical science believes. It keeps the nerves in suspended state as long as the virus is active. In this period, the muscles that are controlled by these nerves try to contact the nerves. Without response from the nerve for long time, the muscles assume that the nerve is dead. So the muscles never try to contact the nerve again. After the virus activity stops in the body, the nerves remain in suspended state.

With our polio treatment, disabled muscles can be activated with physical activity and suspended nerves can be activated by stimulating the connected muscles. This is observation-based or consciousness-based research. It has worked successfully.


Many types of paralyses can be treated with this technique. Observation-based research can treat many types of disabilities including blindness.

This treatment is given free of cost for all. Volunteers are welcome who like to learn the treatment and help disabled people at other locations.

Core exercises

The following are initial exercises for a person whose one of the legs is affected by polio. Do these exercises for about 15 minutes daily and note down changes or sensations you feel in the leg. Contact Sitaram Naik after you feel some strength in your leg for next level of exercises or if you have any confusion or need clarification.

Knee muscles – Moving front and back

  • Stand on normal leg
  • Pull/Lift calf (below knee) of the polio affected leg backwards as much as possible
  • Leave it free (Let it come back to normal state)
  • Repeat these two steps

Hip muscles – Front

  • Stand on normal leg
  • Lift polio affected leg (thigh bone) upwards as much as possible
  • Leave it free (Let it fall back to normal)
  • Repeat these two steps

Hip muscles – Side

  • Stand on normal leg
  • Lift polio affected leg (full leg) side ways (away from body) as much as possible
  • Leave it free (Let it fall back to normal)
  • Repeat these two steps
  • You can bend your body to allow the leg to raise very high
