Rehabilitation course for Maxim Kuznetsov

Maxim was born on April 24, 2009 with bilateral hip dislocation. From 2016-10-31 13.28birth, the boy suffered through a number of different operations, such as capsuloplasty, relocation of the whirlbone into the coxal cavity, installation of spokes and special coxitis plaster cast, as well as constant changes of plaster cast and leg positions under general anaesthesia.

To date, the boy’s primary diagnosis is – traction plexopathy of lumbosacral plexus with partial malfanctions on the left. Very often, the various operations and bandaging are accompanied by a ban on load-bearing on his legs, which means – walking is forbidden. Such restrictions, of course, invoke sadness, because Maxim, like all boys of his age, wants to go for a walk and to run and play without pain and restrictions. The best working solution to aid him are regular, tailored rehabilitation courses.

Maxim’s Mother, Svetlana applied for the help of our Charitable 2016-10-31 13.29Foundation “Happiness is” to support a new course of rehabilitation. Our Foundation has sponsored a course that could help Maxim with his condition – a tailored programme of rehabilitation in the Clinical and Research Institute of Emergency Children’s Surgery and Trauma in Moscow.

The course was very protracted and intensive. For almost two months specialists in physical therapy, massage and electrostimulation were engaged in working on Maxim’s progress. The treatments included electrophoresis and therapeutic taping, as well as lessons on the Reha-Stim simulator and BOS stabilometric platform. Maxim also attended consultations with a neurorehabilitation physician, trauma and orthopaedic surgeon and a physiotherapist.

We hope that this course will be the sure step towards Maxim’s dream to walk without pain.
