Frk. Wagners instruktionsfilm
Year: 1953
Country: Denmark
Section: chronicle
Tags: girl, medical check
Description: The film shows part of the physical treatment of polio: Warm packs, so-called Kennedy packs, are given to relieve the pain and prevent contractures. Concentrated compresses and manipulation of the thorax (chest) are given to make it smoother and thereby facilitate respiration. The packs are changed until the skin is red. Manipulation is given of the entire thorax. A very important step in the treatment of contracture strencks. When the contracture first occurs, the muscles' working capacity is significantly reduced. Therefore, the stretches are started as early as possible, but only until the pain limit and everything after prior warming up. In order that stretching and fixing can take place as correctly as possible, there should be two physiotherapists about the patient. One to fix the patient and one to pull. Stimulation of muscles is performed by the physiotherapist as a light vibration of the muscle group in one direction of movement. Another important part of the treatment is balance exercises. In order to achieve as correct a gait as possible, all patients, regardless of the degree of paralysis, should do balance exercises, i.e. put the weight equally on both legs, keep the pelvis in place and have a good posture. These exercises are also done with two physiotherapists.
