[The role of microcurrent reflexotherapy in combination with neuroprotector in the rehabilitation of the patients with infantile cerebral palsy].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to estimate the therapeutic efficacy of the combined treatment of infantile cerebral palsy by means of microcurrent reflexotherapy (MCRT) in combination with the neuroprotector cortexin. This treatment including 15 sessions with the use of a MAKS apparatus was given to 69 children at the age from 3 to 7 years. They were randomly allocated to two groups. The patients of group 1 underwent three courses of MCRT and two courses of cortexin therapy in conjunction with massage and remedial gymnastics, those in group 2 were treated with massage and remedial gymnastics alone. Positive dynamics in the patients' clinical conditions was documented in the end of the rehabilitative program. Specifically, 60.5% of the children in group 1 developed the ability to walk unassisted compared with 38.6% in group 2. Positive changes in the brain functional status were documented, based on the results of the electroencephalographic study, in 21 (71%) and 16 (53%) children of groups 1 and 2 respectively.
