ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to present the methods of medical rehabilitation and the results from methodical administration in cases of Duchenne-Erb palsy, with damaged C5 and C6 roots. From 2011 to 2016 we have administered complex medical rehabilitation (electrotherapy, kinesitherapy – passive, active, reflexive; medicinal massage – general, selective; alternative methods – acupressure, hyperbaric oxygen therapy) to 17 children aged from 2 months to 9 years old with obstetric brachial plexus lesions of different degrees of damage. The methods were tested and verified in clinical, out-patient centers and at home and yielded very good results in 76% of the cases. After the end of the therapy, a statistically significant imrpovement was observed with regard to most of the surveyed parameters and indicators. The results in the working group marked a significant improvement as compared to the initial values as a result of the administered complex therapy, combined with Montessori-therapy, moxotherapy, game-therapy.

Keywords: Medical rehabilitation, Erb-Duchenne palsy.
