Short-Term Effects of A Compound Neurophysiotherapy Program On Gross Motor Function In People With Spastic Cerebral Palsy
Introduction: Developmental disorders in early childhood, including cerebral palsy (CP), prevent the normal development of gross and fine motor skills in full in children with CP with better functional characteristics Methods: A short-term effects were studied with the help of a pre-experimental study 3 a weekly intensive, multicomponent neurophysiotherapy program (Therasuit, integration of neurodynamics into neurorehabilitation (INN), PNF, NDT, Mulligan, and Maitland concept) on a vulnerable population of 20 CP patients. Results: According to the average values of the results in the field of A-lying and rolling, there was a 5.52% improvement, in the field of B-sitting up to 9% improvement, in the field of C-crawling and kneeling up to 8% improvement and in the field of D-standing up to 7 % improvement, too. Differences in gross motor skills were statistically significant in the pre- and post-test phase. Conclusions: Based on the analysis of the results, we conclude that the mentioned integration of different concepts in neurophysiotherapy has the effect of improving the gross motor skills of people with CP and could be useful in this population with poor gross motor function.
