Rehabilitation of patients diagnosed with infantile cerebral palsy using reflex gymnastics by Vojta method

Cover Page

Abstract

This paper presents the long-term experience of using reflex gymnastics according to the Vojta method in several medical centers in Russia, which is an important aspect of this method of therapeutic exercises, since no study has provided enough information about such experience. Combining the results of studies from Moscow and Russian cities made it possible to demonstrate the advantages of a highly effective method of treating a serious disease such as cerebral palsy. The variability and variety of technical approaches of the Vojta method depend on the severity and orthopedic manifestations of various diseases, which is an undoubted advantage of the technique. Vojta therapy not only works with human motor activity but has a pronounced and varied effect on numerous actions that are of higher nervous activity. Based on the presented experience of working with patients of different ages diagnosed with cerebral palsy, we can confidently recommend the need to use Vojta therapy in the complex treatment of the disease.
