ABR therapy coming to UK

ABR (Advanced BioMechanical Rehabilitation) is a unique biomechanically based rehabilitation approach for children and young adults with cerebral palsy and other brain injuries that brings predictable recovery of the musculo-skeletal structure and motor functions. ABR is a gentle, hands-on treatment, performed by parents and carers, who learn the ABR technique and receive an individually tailored programme of movements from ABR professional staff.

ABR can rebuild even the most severely distorted musculo-skeletal structure; redefining "rehabilitation" by improving the musculo-skeletal structure so significantly that normal motor functions recover spontaneously, making special training and management for "motor disabled" unnecessary.

Unlike conventional NHS treatments, ABR uses no drugs, no invasive techniques, no botox injections and no surgery.

I can testify to all the above as my son, Marten, who has severe spastic quadriplegic CP, has been on the therapy for 10 months now and is making fantastic progress.
