IMF Therapy® in Action

Treatment Example - Incomplete paraplegia - Example 1:

Patient P.S., born in 1945

Diagnosis: Paraparesis after paraplegia in April 1999

Neurological report, provided by Dr. med. Ursula Mehregan, Bensheim, on 9 November 2005:

"I have been treating Mr. S. since January 2000, after he completed his extensive clinical therapeutic and rehabilitation treatment. Occasional subsequent examinations were carried out until 2001 in the Neurological Clinic in Heidelberg. I arranged a check-up examination in the neurology clinic of the Kurpfalz Hospital in Heidelberg in 2004. My colleagues there recommended the use of the Myofeedback device MfT Z². Throughout the entire long-term supervision the patient took part in intensive physiotherapy excercises, under the supervision of experts in neurological malfunctions. However, the patient had over the past few years not made any progress any more, the excercises merely helped to retain the status quo and to avoid further muscular atrophies.

After the Myofeedback device was first used in November 2004 the patient almost immediately showed improvement. The supporting muscles in his torso became considerable stronger and after only one week of treatment Mr S. found it easier to stand upright. Walking (though still with the aid of crutches) also became a lot easier. Mr. S. is now able to make his way to my practice without anybody’s assistance. In his home he is able to climb stairs again and does not need a special stair lift anymore. Mr S.’s professional background as a trained technical engineer meant that he had a particularly good understanding of how the device works (he had even thought about how useful it would be to design such a device before we knew it already existed!), and he therefore found it very easy to use it.

My view is that it would be very advisable and useful to continue the Myofeedback-treatment, because it is highly likely that various other hypotone sceletal muscles can be activated and certain physiological movement patterns re-activated."
