Assessments

One of the essential pillars of the ABR treatment is the unique ABR musculoskeletal evaluation method.

On hand from hundreds of tests that have been developed to pinpoint structural differences between the patient and the healthy individual, the assessment takes an utterly thorough look at the available visible phenomena.

   

In most cases, an ABR assessment involves the following:

Manual Assessment – whereby the extent of the loss of hydrostatic pressure, or the degree of ensuing rigidities is observed and measured manually in the major bodily cavities and/or limbs.

Structural Assessment – is a detailed comparison between the structure of the healthy individual with normal mobility and movement, and that of the patient. The structural abnormalities are described, as well as the changes necessary to achieve improved mobility.

Tissue Quality Examination – Even a close look at the skin quality, can provide a great deal of information about the patient’s condition. The rapid transformation in skin and underlying tissue quality amongst ABR patients reveals changes emerging at deeper tissue levels. At the level of the skin one can see, for example, emerging myofascial segmentation of bodily entities.

Mobility and Elastic Springing Tests - These measure and discern the degree of spasticity and lack of segmentation at the different levels of the musculoskeletal system. On hand from these tests, decreasing spasticity and increasing mobility is easily readable.

Movement and Postural Analysis - This illustrates the correlation between existing structural malformations and aberrations of movement.

The immediate expected transformations in the patient are outlined in detail for the parents, in reference to the described "tests", as well as in reference to expected improvement in function.

An assessment lasts 1 hour and is recorded on video. The regular filming records the onset condition of the patient as well as the ensuing progress and serves, in addition, the prescription of further exercises.

Each patient is assessed twice yearly by Leonid Blyum. At intervals, shorter filming sessions are executed in order to record initial or intermediate stages.
