The programme begins with medical examination. Based on this, the doctor will prescribe an individual treatment plan of 20-24 treatments per week. Examples are:

  • Physical therapy - daily for 40 minutes.
  • Water treatment - daily for 20 minutes.
  • Occupational Therapy - daily for 20 minutes.

At the end of each week, the attending physician examines the child; this is to make sure that your child is on the right treatment plan.

At the end of the treatment course, the child is examined by a doctor again, to measure the results from the treatments. Medical report and recommendations for further self-treatment at home are issued.

Recommended treatment duration: preventive programme - at least two weeks, rehabilitation - at least three weeks.

Repeated treatment after 6 month is also recommended.
