Progressive Fibrotomy’s objectives are the following:
- ROM (Range of Motion) improvement, i.e. maximum movement width (active/ passive depending on the neurological damage), improving the performance of existing movements and the introductions of new ones.
- Muscular or myofascial pain reduction or elimination
- Preventing joint deformityFibrotomy facilitates therapists’ work (physiotherapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists…) which, thanks to ROM improvement, can optimize the rehabilitation process and focus on new goals to be achieved.
- In case of severe disability, progressive fibrotomy may facilitate daily and caregiving activities.
- Furthermore, generally the improvement of the motor activity enhances the cognitive development, which allows new interests to raise and increases patient’s autonomy.
