The basis of the treatment programme
REHA BASIC 18 + Programme uses the effect of synergetic reflexology therapy (SRT) in combination with air pressure splints URIAS and stimulation of sensory functions in the Snoezelen.
SRT therapy was developed for the treatment and prevention of the consequences of cerebral motor skills disorders, such as cerebral palsy and other neuro-orthopaedic diseases in children and adults. During SRT the patient is not actively exercising. The therapist releases, strengthens and centres body structures (muscles, joints), increasing their motorcity and simultaneously activates or inhibits the nervous system and organs.
This method is complemented by the use of air pressure splints URIAS. The splints positively influence the microcirculation of the affected tissues, normalise muscle tone, centralise relevant joints and reduces pathological symptoms of the central nervous system (such as the stretch reflex).
Severe psychomotor damage occurs simultaneously with sensory deprivation - the decrease and loss of information and stimuli. For this reason, a multisensory approach to therapy is necessary. In this special programme it is provided by the Snoezelen environment. This provides an increased exposure to multi-sensory stimuli, thereby simultaneously transmitting the inputs to the central nervous system. It allows an authentic experience that affects an individual's further perception of external stimuli and their responses to them.
Further supporting procedures
Application of natural healing source - iodine-bromine water.
Natural healing source is given as a bath or a compress. It increases blood circulation and metabolism of tissues and organs, softens fibrous structures, relaxes muscle contractions, relieves acute and chronic inflammatory processes, soothes skin defects, acts as analgesic and significantly affects muscle spasticity.
Oxygen therapy stimulating metabolism in the brain
