The aim of the intensive program is to change or improve the existing Gross Motor Classification System (GMFCS) of each child. The Physical Therapy aims to improve strength, balance and stamina, as well as to maintain the joint range which has been gained through the operation.
The program at our Rehab Center lasts from 2 to 4 hours daily, the rehabilitation, however, lasts all day. The parents receive information regarding the various places in the region of Attika where they can perform activities taking advantage of the Greek climate, while enjoying quality time with their child.
The duration of the whole program, depending on the needs of each particular child, as well as the needs of each particular family, may last from 2 to 8 weeks.
