Vaclav Vojta and Reflex Locomotion Therapy

Children molar cerebral palsy often have difficulty speaking, standing and walking. In the course of his work, Vojta discovered that children with CP responded to specific stimuli of sensomotory reflex points in certain body positions, with resultant motor reactions in the trunk and extremities.

After multiple stimulations, the children would begin to speak more clearly, and eventually stand and walk. Vojta concluded that there existed some sort of functional blockade that was keeping these children from achieving developmental milestones of speech and movement.


Moreover, Vojta determined that specific movement patterns were present within the nervous system from birth in all humans, and could be activated through locomotion reflex stimulation. Human developmental motor skills include grasping, rolling, crawling, standing and walking. Vojta therapy is administered with the patient in a prone, supine or side-lying position. When the therapist applies directed pressure to specific zones of the body, every patient, regardless of age, involuntarily responds reflexively in the same way.

The technique elicits two complexes of movement patterns:. Elicited in a prone body position, this movement pattern mimics creeping, an early developmental milestone in infants.

Begun in a supine or side-lying position, reflex stimulus elicits rolling to a quadruped position, fundamental to crawling on all-fours. However, for whatever reason, when neural pathways become blocked, movement can become deficient.

Vaclav Vojta and Reflex Locomotion Therapy

During a Vojta therapy session, the therapist activates reflex locomotion, enabling access, via the central nervous system, to inherently programmed segmental movement patterns. Vojta at the Vojta Institute in Munich. Human posture, movement and gait are controlled by the nervous system, and are fundamentally established during early childhood.


Vojta therapy and DNS essentially resurrect neurodevelopmental aspects of motor control in order to restore functional movement patterns of the locomotor system. Always on the cutting edge of treatment, the sports medicine team at NYDNRehab utilizes the principles of Vojta and DNS to treat athletes and other individuals suffering from pain and kolr associated with movement dysfunction.
