The article that our scientists and doctors have been working on for several years has been published in the well-known British thematic journal BMC Neurology (published by Springer Nature)!
The article "Intensive neurophysiological rehabilitation system for children with cerebral palsy: a quasi-randomized controlled trial" describes our 4-year work on studying the effect of the Kozyavkin Method (KM) on the functions of patients with cerebral palsy.
According to the terms of the study, 48 children with cerebral palsy were randomly assigned to the experimental and control groups. All participants were evaluated three times; the main outcome measure was the Gross Motor Function Test-66, and tools for assessing hand function, questionnaires for assessing self-care and mobility, and measuring passive movement volume were also used.
According to the results, we observed a statistically significant increase in the Gross Motor Function Test-66 score after treatment by the Kozyavkin Method. In addition, we also observed a statistically significant advantage of INRS treatment over standard home treatment in the results of hand function tests.
Thus, our study indicates that treatment according to the Kozyavkin Method improves gross motor function and hand function in children with cerebral palsy.
