It is difficult to agree with the affirmation “Scenar treats everything”. The 30-years doctor’s experience, 17 years?in physiotherapy, 15?in reflexotherapy and 7?in laser-therapy resists it. But, the dissatisfaction with the results of the previous work, and sometimes the unfoundedness of methods used in the treatment, made to address to Scenar-THERAPY.
The report for nine months of work made in regional rehabilitation center (RRC) of children suffered from mental retardation is given below.
Scenar application was combined with mineral baths, mineral water drinking, therapeutic physical training, massage, acupuncture and laser-puncture, sometimes?with other physiotreatment.
213 children have been treated since January till September, 2000.
Quantity of children treated by:
Scenar-therapy ?156?73,2 %
Laser-puncture (LP) ?46?21,5 %
Acupuncture ?9?4,2 %
Combination: Scenar+LP ?6?2,9 %
Acupuncture + laser ?5?2,4 %
Almost all the children in RRC were treated by medical blanket OLM-01.
SCENAR-therapy was used when treating the patients suffering from: diabetes mellitus?18, infantile cerebral paralysis – 52, scoliosis – 15, encephalopathy of various genesis-24, oligophrenia-4, plexitis-5, Erba’s myopathy-5, enuresis-3, epilepsy–4 children.
SCENAR was also applied when treating the acute pathologies: myopia, ichthyosis, neurodermitis, bronchial asthma, vasomotor rhinitis, hypophysial nanism, kidney pathology and other diseases.
The combinations were made when treating the pathology of respiratory system (Scenar + laser-puncture), the bronchial asthma (Scenar+acupuncture), the bronchial asthma and the ulcer of stomach and duodenum (acupuncture + laser-puncture).
The asthmatic states were cut off in 100 % of cases when Scenar and acupuncture were used. The broncholiths and the inhalers were also gradually cancelled.
The rales stopped at bronchial asthma in 100 % of cases when the combined treatment of Scenar and laser-puncture was used. It was possible to refuse the inhalers. Children?invalids, especially with perinatal damages, had the signs of the combined pathology when the usual physiotherapy, acupuncture, laser—puncture didn’t get the desirable results even against a background of balneotherapy. Especially, it was manifested when treating scoliosis, infantile cerebral paralysis, encephalopaties, delay of psycho-emotional and speech development. The somatic status was considerably improved, the mood was better, the painful syndrome disappeared, the sleep, appetite were good;the excitability was reduced during the treatment and after course of SCENAR-Therapy (9-10 sessions combined with Olm-01 and balneotherapy).
The difficulty to find contact with children – invalids in the beginning of treatment was marked. They have already got accustomed, have reconciled to the condition and it was usual for them. The first procedures were carried out by the general techniques according to disease, not asking them and not finding out the complaints if they did not show them themselves. Then, by the 3rd –5th procedure, carefully, casually, we made the dynamics of state more exact, asked children to describe themselves what had happened to them, what they had and changed, by their opinion. Children began to write diaries (who could) in the arbitrary form. Sometimes they wrote only: “I feel better”. We succeeded to make the revelation for ourselves: children feel the problems and take them hard. When the problems began to recede, they noticed it and were very happy. The “union of three” working for recovery?Scenar – ill child–doctor appeared by the subsequent sessions. Unostentatiously, we found out any trivialities about the state changing, we discussed it together and the child was glad to see the hope for the best.
The muscular tone was improved, children marked the forces increasing, vivacity, appetite amelioration, disappearance of dyspeptic phenomena were marked when treateing Erba’s myopathy. There are some examples:
Kate-15 years old. Diagnosis: Erba’s myopaty, syndrome of intestinal suction disorder (“short intestine syndrome”), disbacteriosis. Combined gastritis, dyskinesia of biliary?deduced tract, hypotrophy of 3rd stage. Functional cardiopathy, thoracic-lumbar scoliosis of 1-2 degrees.
Complaints of fast fatigue, weakness, weariness in legs, hands, diarrhea after food taking, bad appetite.
After treatment–no diarrhea( eat all norm of food and even ask the additive), appetite was normal. She began to go for long walks ( about 1 hour )with children (before she stayed in the building), to disco till 1a.m (before she was only sitting). The vivacity appeared, the backbone began to straighten, she gained weight for 2 kg.
Kate-16 years. Diagnosis: S-shaped scoliosis of 4th degree, idiopathic, flat foot, vegetodystonia of hypertonic type.
After treatment: the state of health was considerably improved, the tone of back, legs, hands and stomach muscles was increased, gait was leveled, bearing was right, backbone became more straight, costal hump was less, waistline became clearly appreciable, body form became equal, thorax deformation disappeared.
We could mark the improvement after treatment. The girl herself described the treatment effect after having 2 Scenar-THERAPY courses (6 months later).
Patients with acute pathology were also treated in RRC.
The man born in 1952. Diagnosis: compression fracture of L4-5, 02.03.2000. Concomitant diagnosis: widespread osteochondrosis with primary affection of LS area with right-side lumboischalgia.
Scenar-THERAPY was used 3 weeks after trauma of 22.03.2000 because of not cut off analgesics, blockades of pain syndrome and pelvis disorders : he did not feel when the bladder was full, got the bladder emptied by means of catheter 3 times per day during 3 weeks.
The patient could turn in bed without assistance, but not completely (the wife and the son did it before hardly) after the first session. He could urinate himself after 2 sessions and by the 8th procedure he began to turn in bed without assistance and to lie down on the stomach. One week later, 5 sessions were carried out. The patient was able to stand up, go around the ward and along the corridor with the subsequent discharge.
The patient thought about suicide before Scenar usage.
A 64 years woman. Diagnosis: fracture of D9 and L5, 28.02.2000. Concomitant diagnosis: widespread osteochondrosis with primary affection of LS area, stone in the right kidney.
Scenar was used during the first hours after the trauma. The pain syndrome was cut off after the first session. The renal colic was removed for one session, right-side lumboischalgia was also cut off by Scenar-PROCEDURES.
In the maternity home, by the second day after labor, the child (diagnosis: trauma of the spine cervical area, right lung was not spreaded, congenital inguinoscrotal hernia)was treated.
Next day, after the first procedure of Scenar-THERAPY, the right lung was spreaded , the cyanosis disappeared, the breath was improved, the size of hernia decreased. The child had breast feeding after 3 procedures. 6 procedures of Scenar-THERAPY were taken in total.
Three months later, the repeated course of Scenar-THERAPY was carried out. By that time, the child was examined in the diagnostic centre in Chita where the diagnosis was confirmed:perinatal affection of CNS, traumatic damage of spine cervical area with C2 sublixation, right-side inguinoscrotal hernia.
The child couldn’t hold up his head, was indifferent, seemed to suffer from mental retardation. He began to hold up his head, to turn it, to babble, observe the subjects (from words of mum) after having Scenar-THERAPY course.
Scenar-THERAPY with very good results was used when treating the patients suffering from osteochondrosis, traumas, acute inflammatory processes.
Our experience shows that Scenar should be in each medical establishment of practical public health services, in each maternity home and then we, maybe, shall not see the suffering eyes of children?invalids of the childhood, and rehabilitation of our population will be more valuable.
In summary, we express gratitude to director of RRC -Kurnyshevu A.M. and the chairman of Committee of social security of the Chita region?Roar G.V., which support has allowed to introduce Scenar-THERAPY in medical practice.
