Yegor Chursanov has completed a course of rehabilitation

IMG_2531Within the Chursanov family, from Voronezh, there are twins being raised – Ira and Yegor, born March 10, 2014. Unfortunately, the birth was difficult and both children became subject to intensive care. After 1.5 months in the hospital, Ira was discharged home, but unfortunately, Yegor had a more difficult case: he suffered from brain hypoxia. The boy spent a month on a medical ventilator, underwent heart surgery and was discharged home with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, spastic tetraparesis and consequently, Yegor requires constant rehabilitation.

At the request of the mother of the twins, the Foundation sponsored a course of rehabilitation for Yegor at “Galileo-Med” medical centre.IMG_2297

IMG_2562This rehabilitation course included: Vaclav Vojta reflex locomotion therapy, Bobath therapy, Castillo Morales neurophysiological therapy, speech therapy, kinesio taping, as well as exercises with a fitball and Galileo vibration training plate.

The results exceeded all expectations: Yegor considerably strengthened his back, became more active, the volume of his movements increased, and the quality of movements improved, leading to decreased spasticity. The boy began to spend more time in a seated position and ceased crossing his arms and legs and throwing his head back. Most importantly, Yegor began to stand on all fours and is now trying to move his legs.

We are very pleased with the successes of Yegor and wish for him continued improvement.
