About the department

The department of pediatric rehabilitation at Rehabilitation Center Abromiskes conducts comprehensive rehabilitation activities for children and adolescents with diseases of the lungs and respiratory tract, musculoskeletal system, and central and peripheral nervous system. Each patient receives an individual treatment regimen aimed at the complete elimination or maximum reduction of functional disorders. Parents take an active part in the treatment process. The primary goal of rehabilitation measures is the full possible restoration of the child's functions and his reintegration into everyday life - kindergarten, school, and university. The medical team comprises paediatricians, psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and social workers. Rehabilitation is possible on an outpatient and inpatient basis. 

The department's doctors have exceptional experience in rehabilitating children with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, cerebral palsy, polyneuropathy, as well as after operations, injuries and traumas. The range of services includes physiotherapy, magnetotherapy, sports therapy, art therapy, and rehabilitation in water and massage. The main emphasis in the rehabilitation program is on kinesitherapy. The department has two gyms, new exercise bikes, a Back-Check machine, a Red-Cord suspension system, a vertical bath and two pools. The department also has a playroom and salt and sensory rooms. Paediatricians of the department do their best to make the child and his parents feel as comfortable as possible.
