Physiotherapy and rehabilitation
Physiotherapy and rehabilitation
Physiotherapy deals with the treatment of functional disorders of the musculoskeletal system. These disorders are classified as blockade of the joints, muscle spasms, and others. Treatment is carried out using anatomical and physiological knowledge of the musculoskeletal system.
Medical rehabilitation belongs to the essential medical branches and is closely connected to several other specialities. It deals with areas representing the greatest socio-economical problem in a modern society.
According to statistics, 95 percent of people have problems which can be treated by rehabilitation procedures. If they are not treated, they can often result in serious and permanent complcations. Medical rehabilitation is a complex of medical preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic measures that aim to restore maximal function and fitness of a patient. Using methods of medical rehabilitation improves the musculoskeletal system, affects pain, decreases muscle fatigue and improves memory.

As part of rehabilitation services for children, we provide child development physiotherapy all the way from premature babies to adults. A very common diagnosis that children come to us with is scoliosis (the misalignment of the spine). This health condition most commonly occurs just before puberty and during puberty as well.
We provide examinations of children and adolescents by a professional rehabilitation physician. An exception applies to babies whose neurodevelopmental state is checked instead by a pediatrician.
- Bobath therapy – this is one of the most widely used therapeutic approaches aimed at both adults and children. The neurodevelopmental concept of Berta Bobath and Karel Bobath is based around stimulation of the child while walking. The child is motivated by a game/toy coordinated by the therapist by implementing specific stimulation to ensure the best movement possible. Through a detailed examination, the therapist focuses on identifying those things that the child can do without any help, those where some help is needed and those which the child simply cannot do at all. Based on these findings, the therapist devises a therapy goal and plan. The therapy itself involves a combined team effort by several specialists. The Bobath concept can be applied to all children with a handicap. These can range from problems concerning the muscles those which are neurological or mental in nature.
- Vojta method therapy – this is a method used primarily with prematurely-born children as well as older children suffering from various scoliosis spine curvature problems. It is also used extensively with children affected by neurological factors (post-traumatic paresis and handicap-related issues). Further, this method is often used on adults with neurological deficits (severe headaches or herniated discs). In essence, the Vojta method focuses on activating muscle chains in precisely defined positions which the child would otherwise be unable to engage. Such blocks could prevent the child from example being unable to lift the head with the neck spine straight or unable to take a step forward with a lower limb. Due to similar problems, the child suffers from impaired psychomotor development and function and it is therefore necessary to address it accordingly.
