Effects of Neuro Developmental Treatment In Combination With Aquatherapy On Gross Motor Function In A Boy With Pierre Robin Syndrome
Pierre Robin syndrome (PRS) is one of the rare genetic disorders characterized by major and minor congenital anomalies associated with developmental abnormalities. Children with PRS to have problems with gross motor function, among other things. According to available data, there are currently no published studies and evidence-based neurophysiotherapy regarding the most effective combination of physiotherapy procedures (NDT, hydrotherapy, function-oriented exercise, etc.) in a neurophysiotherapy program to improve gross motor function in children with PRS. Method: We performed a case study and used a quantitative methodology where we obtained the gross motor function data of a boy with PRS using the version-88 gross motor function scale. The main purpose was to evaluate the effectiveness of a composite neurophysiotherapy program on gross motor function in a boy with PRS. after performing a phase fibrotomy over a period of ten years. Results: Based on the analysis of the results, we can conclude that the compiled neurophysiotherapy program has a positive effect in areas A (lying and turning), B (sitting), D (standing), E (walking, running, jumping) gross motor functions in a boy with PRS . Conclusions: The existing case study provides clinically relevant information on the motor progress of a boy with PRS during the mentioned assessment period, when he received a complex neurophysiotherapy program (RNO in combination with Watsu therapy as a form of aquatherapy, etc.).
