Cuevas Medek Exercises (CME) is a powerful therapy approach to help children with cerebral palsy, developmental delays, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, or other neuromuscular conditions. The goal of this therapy is to help children gain courage and self-sufficiency in reaching developmental turning points.
What are Cuevas Medek Exercises?
Cuevas Medek Exercises (CME) therapy, also known as the Dynamic Method of Kinetic Stimulation (MEDEK), is an innovative powerful form of exercise training. This is designed to help a child with movement disorders or motor delays.
The CME technique is composed of more than 3000 exercises and helps promote an active response. It provides various therapies, such as physical, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy. It’s aimed at improving gross motor skills of a child to reach developmental milestones. A child can start intensive therapy at age one month and up and their progress is measured on an individual basis time to time.
At Hope AMC, a complete medical care facility for children in Dubai, the Cuevas Medek therapy experts train one-on-one with the child during an intensive therapy session. Our CME Physical Therapy is aimed at helping children as young as one month until they gain the capability of walking independently.
Cuevas Medek Exercises (CME) Benefits
As said, the intensive Cuevas Medek Exercises therapy improves overall strength and functional outcomes in a child. Each exercise is aimed at helping a particular biomechanical challenge for the child and promotes an active response.
Designed with a totally innovative approach, this form of physiotherapy basically improves the gross motor skills of young children with physical disabilities and movement disorders.
Children with the following disorders can benefit from CME® Therapy:
- Gross Motor Skills Delays
- Cerebral Palsy
- Down Syndrome
- Global Developmental Delay
A developing child should learn to respond to gravity naturally. This is typically how our body is designed to do. But those children with motor delays don’t have that capability. With the intervention of the Cuevas Medek therapy, that capability is grown into them and they learn to respond to gravity and build strength gradually. Cuevas Medek therapy also helps in improving the brain skills and it becomes a more natural and learned movement.
