Danila needed a rehabilitation course at Adeli-Penza LLC, Penza, after undergoing a very complicated operation on two hip joints, knees and feet in the city of Kurgan at the FGBU “NMITSTO im. ak. Ilizarov of the Ministry of Health of Russia. Since Danila is already a full 13 years old and he is growing up as a tall and tall guy, that is why it was especially important for him to pay attention to rehabilitation after the operation. Despite all the trials, Danila was able to gather moral and physical strength in himself in order to learn to walk again!

– General massage (60 minutes), 20 sessions
– Exercise therapy (motor gymnastics), 10 sessions
– Correctional (special) teacher, 15 sessions
– Class with a specialist in the PNF + FTP methodology, 20 sessions

– Lesson with a speech therapist + probe massage 45 min., 20 sessions

Danila’s mother writes in more detail about the results in her letter:
“Dear employees of the Diema’s Dream Foundation!
I want to express my deep gratitude to you for helping my son Danila in such a timely manner, helping to pay for the rehabilitation course, on which the success of postoperative recovery depended. Now all the worries and fears are behind, Danila is returning to his former physical form, but with new skills and abilities, he has the opportunity to live without pain and develop further.
And this is thanks to your sympathetic hearts, which found a response in the souls of other people, people who are not indifferent to the fate of children who are forced to deal with difficult diagnoses in order to live a full life.
Huge thanks to all the benefactors,
to everyone who extended a helping hand, who took the Step towards Danila!!!
The rehabilitation course, which took place thanks to the well-coordinated work of the foundation and all caring people, was, on the one hand, the most difficult, and on the other hand, the most effective.
The fact is that after the most complicated operations performed by Danila to eliminate dislocations of both t / b joints, eliminate contractures, deformities of the feet, my son found himself in an unusual state for him and for me – for the first time for such a long time he was deprived of the opportunity for any movements at all and even more so activities.
We came to the rehabilitation course to start everything from scratch: after 3 months in a cast, the muscles weakened so much that Danila could not perform even the simplest exercises.
The center picked up a special program that included massage, several types of exercise therapy, starting with motor gymnastics, classes to normalize muscle tone up to AFC in Adele’s costume.
That’s it with the simplest we started. The goal of exercise therapy at the first stage is to gradually restore muscle strength, and to all muscle groups: back, arms, chest, abs, legs. The instructors selected exercises in such a way that, gradually increasing the load and intensity, they would prepare the body for walking.
The specialists of the center almost put my son back on his feet!
The result of the work is that Danila began to walk confidently with a walker, and in Adele’s costume he even began to regain his walking skills with “crab” canes.
Of course, physical activity is directly related to the psychological state. And after the operation, Danila had many fears: the pain she suffered, new sensations of her body. Without work on the emotional sphere, we would not have achieved such results.
This is precisely what procedures such as LAC were aimed at, as well as classes with teachers who, along with the tasks of the school curriculum, used situations in the classroom that helped the child cope with his stress and fear of the new.
Thanks to bank card transfers, a QR code placed on the Foundation’s brochures and posters, as well as cash collected using donation boxes installed at BP and Rosneft gas stations, we managed to collect all the the required amount.
Dear benefactors, we would like to thank you for your help and participation in the lives of children with special needs!
Thanks to everyone who took a step towards Danila R.!
