Short-Term Effects of Neurophysiotherapy On Gross Motor Function In A Child With Syngap1 Syndrome
Introduction: The most common manifestation of SYNGAP1-associated encephalopathy is developmental delay. No randomized clinical studies or pilot studies have been published in the databases as case studies examining the efficacy of neurophysiotherapy programme on gross motor function in children with SYNGAP1 syndrome. Methods: We performed a case study where we used a quantitative research methodology and investigated the effectiveness of an 8-month neurophysiotherapy program (RNO, hippotherapy, Therasuit method) on improving the subject's gross motor function (GMFM-88). Results: Based on the analysis of the results of the scale of gross motor function, we find that the mentioned neurophysiotherapy program is effective in improving gross motor function in each area A-Lying and rolling, B-Sitting, C-Crawling and kneeling, D-Standing, E-Walking, running, jumping, as in the total sum of areas from A to E. Conclusions: From the results of our research we can conclude that in our case a composite neurophysiotherapy program is effective in improving the gross motor function of a child with SYNGAP1 syndrome.
