Equipment-assisted physiotherapy

Laser therapy is a safe and painless method of treating many disorders. For this procedure, we use therapeutic laser operating in the red and infrared spectrum. Laser radiation helps improve the state of articulation apparatus, intensify blood flow in tissues and enrich them with oxygen. Laser is also used in reflexology to reduce excitability of nerve endings, and produce pain relieving and anti-inflammatory effect.

Laser has remedial properties when treating all forms of cerebral palsy. This procedure is especially recommended for children with cerebral palsy and concomitant diseases of internal and hearing organs.

Indications:

  • spastic paresis;
  • speech disorders;
  • cerebral palsy;
  • osteochondrosis;
  • inflammatory processes;
  • lymphatic vessel diseases.

Counter-indications:

  • neoplasms;
  • thyrotoxicosis;
  • diabetes mellitus.

Duration of the procedure: 30 minutes.

Magnetic therapy has pain relieving, anti-inflammatory and anti-edema effect. This procedure improves blood circulation in brain, reduces spastic paresis and paralyses, and produces remedial effect on disorders in sensitivity and blood circulation in affected limbs. Treatment using magnets is prescribed to relieve intracranial pressure and muscle tonus in the cases of joint contractions. That’s why magnetic therapy is widely used to treat children with cerebral palsy. The effect from magnetic therapy will also be visible when treating nervous system diseases, because magnetic field produces effect on nervous tissue as well.

Indications:

  • spastic paresis and paralyses;
  • nervous system diseases;
  • musculoskeletal disorders.

Counter-indications:

  • general counter-indications to physiotherapy;
  • expressive hypotension.

Duration of the procedure: 30 minutes.

The transcranial micropolarization method is based on the use of low-voltage direct current not harmful for humans yet efficacious when treating various disorders in the human body. This procedure stimulates response and functionality of the nervous system, and is used in the cases of delayed mental and speech development, hearing and vision disorders. The use of micropolarization on patients with cerebral palsy helps normalize muscle tonus and increase the volume of movements. This method is also used to normalize mental functions: reduce aggression and the sense of fear; increase the learning ability and interest in the surrounding world. An ill child learns new sounds and words, and begins to understand speech.

Indications:

  • cerebral palsy;
  • Down syndrome;
  • hearing disorders;
  • vision disorders;
  • vascular diseases in brain;
  • neuroses.

Counter-indications:

  • infectious diseases;
  • tumors;
  • cardiovascular system diseases.

Duration of the procedure: 30 minutes.

Children with various speech or developmental disorders often require muscular stimulation of articulation muscles. At our center, we use the time-tested Shcherbakova method to treat dysarthria. Stimulation by sinusoidal modelled currents is directed at weakened lip, tongue and chewing muscles. This method reduces spasticity of articulation muscles and improves speech: pronouncement of sounds becomes clearer, and the volume of voice increases. The use of this method produces effect on articulatory organs and on the central nervous system in general.

Indications:

  • speech disorders;
  • cerebral palsy.

Counter-indications:

  • infectious diseases;
  • inflammatory processes;
  • skin diseases.

Duration of the procedure: 30 minutes.

Speech stimulation is effective when treating various childhood disorders and delayed development. Microcurrent stimulation using ultralow electric signals boosts underdeveloped brain areas, stabilizes intracranial pressure and reduces excessive excitability.

Our specialists have patented this method under the title: Method of correcting speech disorders in children of early age. This method helps improve the child’s intellectual capabilities and correct speech disorders. Stimulation of trigger zones also has favorable effect on small motility.

Speech stimulation is a painless procedure easily bearable by children and producing good results. Recommended course: 10-15 procedures.

Indications:

  • speech disorders related to organic diseases of the central nervous system;
  • speech disorders related to functional changes in the central nervous system;
  • Down syndrome;
  • autism;
  • hearing loss;
  • delayed development;
  • distracted attention;
  • bad memory.

Counter-indications:

  • convulsive disorder.

Duration of the procedure: 30 minutes.

Ultrasound therapy involves use of ultrasonic oscillations of certain frequency for medical purposes. Ultrasound produces mechanical, thermal and physicochemical effect on the human body, representing a sparing procedure. It doesn’t have any harmful effect, and is very effective in treatment and prevention of certain diseases. For example, the use of ultrasound therapy in the cerebral palsy cases is based on the spasmolytic effect from this procedure, the effect of ultrasound on connective tissue and peripheral section of the nervous system. Ultrasound also improves metabolic and immune processes in the human body.

Indications:

  • contractions and rigidity of joints;
  • increased muscle tonus;
  • cicatrical changes in tissues;
  • skin diseases;
  • neurological diseases.

Counter-indications:

  • general counter-indications to physiotherapy;
  • acute infectious diseases;
  • arterial hypotension;
  • vegetovascular dystonia;
  • neoplasm.

Duration of the procedure: 30 minutes.
