Cambridge Medical and Rehabilitation Center (CMRC)the GCC’s leading provider of rehabilitation and long-term care services ensuring a “continuum of care” for its patients, join forces with Professor Kozyavkin of Ukraine to introduce its unique program to the UAE community, a treatment for patients with cerebral palsy as well as other neurological conditions where increased tone and spasticity affect movement.
Abu Dhabi & Al-Ain Branches of Cambridge Medical and Rehabilitation Center (CMRC) provide the Intensive Neuro-Rehabilitation System (INRS), known as the Kozyavkin Method. The world-class rehabilitation program was established by Dr. Vladimir Kozyavkin over 30 years ago and is accredited by the European Medical Association (EMA). The incredibly effective treatment targets patients with CP and those with other consequences of trauma and organic damage to the nervous system. .
Najat was not the only success story of the Kozyavkin program in the UAE, but she also reminds us of her parents’ dedication to helping their child and giving him real hope. “I may have enrolled my daughter a little late after a year and 3 or 4 months, but thank God my daughter went through the ‘Kozyavkin method’. The program enabled her to walk after a year and eight months .” said Najat’s father.
dr. Howard PodolskiGroup Chief Executive, said: “Cambridge Medical and Rehabilitation Center is honored and privileged to provide innovative and groundbreaking care to patients like Najat. Our long-standing clinical collaboration with Professor Kozyavkin and his team demonstrates our unwavering commitment to improving the quality of life of every patient we meet.”
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a brain disorder caused by damage before, during or after birth. It is the most common motor disability in children. Although the injury that causes CP symptoms does not progress, the level of disability and change in clinical expression may progress as the brain matures. Motor disorders associated with CP include disturbances in cognition, communication, behavior, seizures, and musculoskeletal problems.
The Kozyavkin Method works as a multi-system program that rehabilitates nerve function in two phases – the intensive rehabilitation process and the consolidation phase. The active cycle takes place in the rehabilitation center and usually lasts 15-21 days. After this phase, the child returns to their usual routine while adhering to a daily home exercise program guided by our specialist clinicians.
Intensive active cycles of therapy combine physical therapy with mental therapy and include restoring range of motion to the spine and peripheral joints, improving muscle strength, coordination and control, reducing spasticity and increased tone with movement. The program also includes massage, trigger point therapy, joint mobilization, group rhythm exercises, and even rehab computer games. Highly trained doctors conduct all sessions, physiotherapists and massage professionals – each specifically trained and certified to perform the treatment.
Retrospective analysis of 12,256 patients who completed the 12-year program showed that 47% of patients maintained function between cycles and 45% of patients rapidly developed improved gross motor function. Najat is one of CMRC’s many successes for patients and their families. CMRC brings its continuum of care to Abu Dhabi & Al-Ainthe Kingdom of Saudi Arabiaand the GCC region.
