Terapia metodą Vojty

The method of reflexive locomotion according to Vaclav Vojta – created by Czech neurologist – Vaclav Vojta. Initially the concept of rehabilitation of young people with MPD (cerebral palsy), over time, was recognized mainly in the therapy of infants and children. In recent years increasingly used in the rehabilitation of adults. The main assumption of the method is the existence of innate coordination complexes, the same in every human being. In the various neurological and other conditions, both innate and acquired, the components of these complexes, and sometimes all the complexes, may be disturbed, manifested by a lack of or pathological motion patterns. The goal of Vojta therapy is to limit abnormal motions reactions and to find and release correct coordination complexes. For this purpose the patient is placed in certain positions and by pressing the so-called. The zones try to trigger the correct locomotive patterns. The responses are global (including the whole body) and independent of the patient’s will. The reactions include both the motion and the vegetative system. The indications for using Vojta therapy are very broad and include such conditions as cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, cranio-cerebral traumas, stroke, but also other neurological, orthopedic and any medical condition manifesting in a clinical altered motor pattern. Contraindications are among others. inflammatory conditions, as well as general contraindications for rehabilitation.
