I personally oversee each patient of my clinic,
no matter how simple or complex the issue
Conditions: Cerebral Palsy, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Multiple sclerosis, Spinal muscular atrophy, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Myopathy Scoliosis Objective of our treatment is full restoration of body geometry, elimination of pathological alignments, curvatures and displacements, and elimination of strength and range of motion asymmetries.
Complex Neuromuscular and Skeletal Disorders
Our step-by-step approach involves: Step 1 Reinstating of anatomical and biomechanical integrity of the spine Step 2 Reinstating of neurological integrity of spinal cord Step 3 Eliminating secondary muscle paralysis, contractures, atrophy and spasticity Step 4 Learning to walk again
Rehabilitation after Spinal Cord Injuries
Strengthening and energizing of connective tissues Improving musculoskeletal flexibility and viscoelastic properties of connective tissues Elimination of secondary biomechanical abnormalities Restoration of functional integrity and alignment of joints and periarticular tissues Strengthening of weak or traumatized tissues
Complex Joint and Connective Tissue Disorders
Conditions: Peripheral Artery Disease, Aneurysms, Renal artery disease, Raynaud's Syndrome, Buerger's Disease, Varicose Veins, Blood Clotting, Lymphedema Releasing blood vessels from compression Restoration from pathological torsion Restoration of muscle pump function and venous hemodynamics.
Rehabilitation of Circulatory Disorders of Arteries and Veins
Elimination of traumatic zones and weak musculoskeletal links Elimination of the effects of previously untreated and/or undertreated injuries Tissue detox Elimination of professional muscular asymmetries of strength and range of motion
Elite Athlete Physical Rehabilitation
Objective of Pre-Op Rehabilitation is to minimize the invasiveness of future surgery and provide for fastest post-surgery and recovery. Post-op Rehabilitation ensures removal of post-operative adhesions and scarring, normalize blood circulation and lymphatic drainage from affected tissues.
Pre and Post Op Rehabilitation
Diagnosis:INFANTILE CEREBRAL PARALYSIS,SPASTIC DIPLEGIANEUROLOGICAL STATUS BEFORE TREATMENT.Varus deformity of the lower extremities. Significant flexors’ and adductors’ contractures of the thigh. The spastic lower extremities causes the gait stereotype disturbance "toe-heel", the adductors prevalence, crossed legs, compensative trunk rotation, significant step length limitation, caused by contracture of posterior thigh muscle group. The sensitivity is normal.THE NEUROLOGICAL STATUS IN DYNAMIC (AFTER TREATMENT)The normal caridrr is restored. The reduction of contractures of lower extremities muscles caused the normal gait stereotype: an adequate length and phase sequence of the step, normal basis foot function, persistent stability with minimal area of support.
Diagnosis:INFANTILE CEREBRAL PARALYSIS,HYPERKINETIC FORMNEUROLOGICAL STATUS BEFORE TREATMENT.Light mental and memory disturbance. Cranial nerves’ status: left eye is wider than right one, asymmetry of nasolabial folds. Motor impairment: tendon reflex excitation in all extremities. Pathologic signs are absent. Myogenic tonus is raised in right extremities. Muscle force of right extremities is decreased – up to 4- 4.5 points with awkward movements and excessive motor reactions. Moderate hyperkinesis in muscles of expression as well as sings of torsion dystonia with neck and upper part of trunk rotated to the right.In Romberg posture is unstable. The sensitivity is normal.THE NEUROLOGICAL STATUS IN DYNAMIC (AFTER TREATMENT)Myogenic tonus in all extremities is normal, muscle force in right extremities is restored up to 5 points, hyperkinesis in muscles of expression and neck muscles is reduced and there is a significant improvement in proximal parts of upper extremities. All coordination probes are normal.
Diagnosis:COMPLETE SPINAL CORD INJURY,LOWER PARAPARESISNEUROLOGICAL STATUS BEFORE TREATMENT.Condition after osteosynthesis at T11 and fixation at T9-T10-T11-T12-L1. Contusion of the chest. Contusion of the spleen. Level of injury per ASIA scale - grade A (no motor or sensory function in the sacral segments S4-S5). Sensory and motor sensitivity at T10 on the right and at T11 on the left. Absence of voluntary and involuntary movements. Complete prolapse of pelvic functions. Atrophy in the lower leg and thigh muscles on both sides. Complete paralysis of the lower limbs.NEUROLOGICAL STATUS IN DYNAMICLevel of injury - ASIA grade C. Sensory and motor sensitivity at the dermatome level of L1 on both sides. Hip flexors have a muscle grade of 1-2. Absence of atrophy in the muscles of the thighs and lower legs. Muscle grade of the hip flexors – 2 (active movement not overcoming the force of gravity). Absence of contractures and spasticity.
Diagnosis:INFANTILE CEREBRAL PARALYSIS,SPATIC PARALYSIS OF LOWER EXTREMITYNEUROLOGICAL STATUS BEFORE TREATMENT.No mental disturbances. Cranial nerves are normal. Motor impairment: tendon reflex excitation at the right, more in lower right extremity. Pathologic signs like toe- and other reflexes are found out at the right. Myogenic tonus in upper extremities is normal and is sharply increased in right lower extremity. The muscle force of upper extremities is normal – 5 points, spastic paresis in lower extremity at the right, mainly expressed in flexors – up to 2.5-3 points. The sensitivity is normal.THE NEUROLOGICAL STATUS IN DYNAMIC (AFTER TREATMENT)The significant reduction of myogenic tonus in right lower extremity is noticed. The muscle force in right thigh is restored up to 5 points, but in muscles of shin and foot – up to 4.5 points. The improvement of gait disturbance (i.e. in thigh, knee and foot).
Diagnosis:INFANTILE CEREBRAL PARALYSIS,SPATIC DIPLEGIANEUROLOGICAL STATUS BEFORE TREATMENT.Can’t keep vertical posture, even with back and hands support. Legs are bent without heels support, trunk is bent forward. Inner X-form deformity of the crossed legs, calf muscles are spastic with both ankle contracture. Superplantaflexion of the foot.THE NEUROLOGICAL STATUS IN DYNAMIC (AFTER TREATMENT)Can keep vertical posture independently, stands on whole foot with straight legs. Goes with support with normal stereotype.
Diagnosis:INFANTILE CEREBRAL PARALYSIS,SPATIC TETRAPARESISNEUROLOGICAL STATUS BEFORE TREATMENT.Significant psychomotor arrest. Can’t hold his head. The prevalence of primitive tonic reflexes and global synkinesia. Proof pyramidal and extrapyramidal disturbances. Significant contractures of proximal parts of upper and lower extremities.THE NEUROLOGICAL STATUS IN DYNAMIC (AFTER TREATMENT)All flexion-abductors contractures of the extremities are removed. The child supports on his forearms and hold his head. Stands on all fours from lying independently. Sits without support on hands, controlling his position of trunk and head.
Diagnosis:INFANTILE CEREBRAL PARALYSIS,SPATIC DIPLEGIANEUROLOGICAL STATUS BEFORE TREATMENT.Light mental disturbance. Cranial nerves’ status: lateral nystagmus, asymmetry of nasolabial folds. Motor impairment: tendon reflex excitation in extremities bilaterally. Pathologic signs like toe- and other hand and foot reflexes are found out. Myogenic tonus is raised upper extremities’ extensors and is sharply raised in lower extremities. Spastic paresis in upper extremities bilaterally up to 4-4.5 points (so called motor awkward), in lower extremities – 3 points at the left, 3.5 points at the right. Extrapyramidal disturbances like athetoid movements in distal parts of upper extremities. The sensitivity is normal.THE NEUROLOGICAL STATUS IN DYNAMIC (AFTER TREATMENT)The significant reduction of myogenic tonus in all extremities is noticed. The muscle force in upper extremities is restored up to 5 points, in lower extremities – up to 5-4.5 points, carridr and gait improvement, regress of athetoid movements in distal parts of upper extremities
From the thousands of patients treated over the years, many flattering testimonial letters have been received. Most of these I have the permission to publish, but believe that one will be sufficient.
I am privileged to have worked with Dr. Blum for a number of years. His method is something that makes perfect sense to me and results in our program speak for themselves. No matter what you may be afflicted with you certainly will do well to call on him. Of course there are diseases that cannot be cured, but any disease that Dr. Blum says he can cure, he will cure.
