Frequently asked questions
A child, who is advised by his paediatrician to undergo Vojta Principle treatment, is treated in our centre by an experienced physiotherapist with highest education in the Vojta Principle. The therapist performs a thorough assessment of the child’s motor abilities and skills and explains the reasons for necessary treatment to parents. Based on such assessment, he specifies the main motor issue which needs to be treated and he sets the goal of the therapy with parents. The physiotherapist determines specific therapeutic procedure.
To reach maximum efficacy of the therapy in childhood, it is necessary to perform Vojta therapy several times a day according to the child’s age and individual needs. Therefore, the parent who performs the therapy with the child at home becomes the “therapist”.
To assure the parents that they carry out the therapy properly, the physiotherapist methodically instructs them how to work with their child. He explains and practically shows the parents the positions in which they carry out the treatment, how to communicate with the child during the therapy and what exactly they need to observe and what goal should be reached. The parents try and practise everything directly with their child under the supervision of the physiotherapist.
Because the child develops and its condition changes, it is necessary to check and adjust the therapeutic programme to new situations. During regular checks in our outpatients’, the physiotherapist adjusts the home programme so that it is carried out by parents faultlessly.
An adult, who comes to our outpatients’ to undergo Vojta Therapy, is treated by an experienced physiotherapist. The therapist performs a thorough assessment of the patient’s motor abilities and skills and explains the cause of motor problems. Based on such assessment, he specifies the main motor issue which needs to be treated and he sets the goal and strategy of the therapy together with the patient.
To reach the maximum effect of Vojta therapy in adults it is necessary to perform the therapy several times a week according to seriousness and character of the motor problem. When acute pain subsides, we subsequently recommend active exercises to be performed at home.
The frequency of visits is determined by the physiotherapist according to the child’s condition and the parents’ ability to learn and correctly carry out the therapy at home.
Patients from Olomouc and its surroundings can visit us more often for one unit.
Patients coming from further distances and from abroad are offered intense programmes for several days, a week or two weeks. In these cases, the therapy and intense home programme instruction take place twice a day.
We accept cash payment for the therapy straight in our office.
During Vojta therapy we must place and hold the child in a specific initial position and activate trigger zones. This can be uncomfortable for the baby. At the same time, major involuntary motor reaction appears as a result of the activation. The child reacts to such discomfort with a cry. The therapy mustn’t ever be painful.
Proper communication with the child during the therapy provides confidence and self-assurance and, therefore, ensures that the therapy is not stressful for the child.
