Rehabilitation of children with disabilities: rehabilitation and habilitation program for children with disabilities

Causes and consequences of disability

There are many reasons for limiting the children’s life:

  • Nervous system diseases (cerebral palsy);        

  • Congenital malformations and deformities;        

  • Injury;        

  • Infectious, viral disease (tuberculosis of bones and joints, polio);        

  • Systemic pathologies (rheumatoid arthritis, spondylitis, etc.).        

Disabling diseases and severe injuries of various sections of the musculoskeletal system lead to serious impairment of functions, limitation of vital functions and participation in society. Moreover, all this happens during the formation of the psyche and character of the child.

The lack of treatment and rehabilitation of children with disabilities with limited mobility entails not only further complications from the musculoskeletal system, but also negatively affects the emotional sphere. A constant feeling of dissatisfaction and worry about your bodily defect leads to maladaptation, phobias and neurotic disorders. Only a timely help of specialists in regenerative medicine can significantly improve the quality of life and improve the health of the child.

The rehabilitation features of children with severe motor impairment

Professional rehabilitation of children with disabilities is a complex of multidirectional measures aimed at the full or partial restoration of impaired or lost functions. It includes:

  • Medical methods (therapeutic correction, reconstructive surgery);        

  • Robotic mechanotherapy;        

  • Technical means (prostheses, orthoses and other products);        

  • Rehabilitation devices (wheelchairs, crutches, canes, rollators, orthopedic corsets, etc.);        

  • Motor skills training and development of functional capabilities;        

  • Social adaptation.        

The main element of an integrated approach to the rehabilitation of children with disabilities is the correction of muscular-articular imbalance. For more than 30 years, the Dr. Blum Physiotherapy and Biomechanics Center has been successfully solving this problem. In addition to the traditional methods of correction, an integrative technique was developed here, aimed at the phased compensation of existing violations. Its author, an expert in functional movement, MD, Professor E. E. Blum, specializes in restoring children with developmental disabilities.

The rehabilitation method is based on motion treatment. Preliminary biomechanical diagnostics of the condition of the musculoskeletal system. With its help, muscle imbalances, distortions, biases and other "weak links" of the human body are revealed. Further, on the basis of the data obtained, an individual rehabilitation program is developed.

One of the principles of rehabilitation measures at the Dr. Blum Center – engage the work of the deep muscle layers. Unlike superficial, which are controlled at a conscious level, the deep muscles responsible for stability can only be turned on in the eccentric working mode with a trainer using special constructions and exercises. As a result, the strength and endurance of muscles stabilizing the joints increases, motion control improves, impaired muscle tone, muscular-articular balance are restored, distortions and pathological motor stereotypes are eliminated, and body symmetry is restored.

Rehabilitation of children with disabilities includes corrective, wellness and socially adaptive methods. A phased integrated approach allows you to achieve systematically positive dynamics. All rehabilitation measures are carried out with the support and active participation of parents and family members.

Dr. Blum's method advantages

The rehabilitation of children with disabilities according to the Dr. Blum method has several advantages:

  • A personalized approach, allowed predicting the dynamics of recovery correction;        

  • A formation of an individual program, taking into account the child condition;        

  • Classes in an eccentric (inferior) mode, without conscious participation;        

  • High efficiency of trainings at low energy costs;        

  • The absence of contraindications and age restrictions;        

  • Increase of functional abilities due to the body's own resources;        

  • No medicine and surgical procedures;        

  • The ability to plan recovery phases.        

A special role in the rehabilitation of children with disabilities is given to the human factor. Thanks to the phased training program, the functional capabilities of the body gradually increase, the correct pathological motor skills are formed and the acquired ones are rebuilt, the movements become more coordinated and confident. In addition, the emotional state of the child improves noticeably.

At the Dr. Blum Center, children learn to believe in their own strengths, actively participating in the recovery process, improve a health. We will analyse your case in detail and evaluate the prospects of rehabilitation according to the Dr. Blum method on the consultation. Call, write, ask questions.
