Introduction: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a relapsing or progressive neurological disease with an unknown etiology. MS
has a negative impact on both physical and psychological well-being. One of the most common symptoms, reported by
patients, it the disturbance of the ability to obtain balance.
Aim: The purpose of the study was to test a group of men with MS with new combination of physiotherapeutic methods
and to observe how the potential to keep balance will be affected.
Methods: The study took place in Sofia, Bulgaria with 18 men, diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis,
duration over five years-with more than four crises. We used the BBS-The Berg balance scale to measure the changes in
their ability to obtain balance. The whole program included 16 classes of hippotherapy and 20 classes of physiotherapy. The
physiotherapy included exercises with big swiss-ball (fit-ball), modified exercise from PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular
facilitation), myofascial massage and autogenic training.
Results: At the end of the study our male patients showed statistically significant increase of the results for BBS. Each one
of them started to feel much more confident in the performance of the test’s components. We think that it is due to the
effect of the selected exercises and methods both strengthening and relaxing at the same time. Each one of the exercises
required the possibility of minor motor control of the body so that by repetition to strengthen muscularity properly.
Conclusion: Long term programs help the patients with MS to achieve and keep the positive results for a long period of
time and hopefully to make them permanent.

Vladimir dodtiyevitch bitsoyev(1943), Ph.D., medicine, academician of the academy of medical and technical sciences, colonel of medical service in retirement, doctor of the highest category. He graduated from the military medical faculty at the gorky state medical institute by specialty "medical treatment" in 1971. He has 75 scientific publications in national and foreign journals, 1 monograph on "restorative medicine", methodological recommendations for physicians in restorative medicine, 4 patents (3 Russian patens and 1 German patent. V.d. Bitsoyev proved the "world novelty" of water and blood plasma activating under the influence of underwater light therapy through the fiber optic cable. V.d. Bitsoyev revealed first previously unknown new mechanisms of the effect of weak electromagnetic waves on the holistic organism as a "tunnel effect", as well as ways of their registration at the atomic and molecular levels.




The actual problem of the modern world science for all of its disciplines is recognition of existence in the whole
Universe of a uniform "superperfect energy" of the universe, existing by the will of the God. The "superperfect energy"
is one and always vital, but it's not seen, felt or sensible by a man. That means the perspiration taking place constantly and
evenly from all of the body's surface is exactly the "superperfect energy". It fills all space between the elementary particles,
atoms, molecules, cells, organs and systems. Therefore, all information of an organism is transferred to the biosphere and
processed with the infinite options of speeds, with further emergence of a "thought" and its implementation "program" for
its original source, i.e. For the organism.

Kinesio taping (KT) involves application of flexible water-resistant elastic bands on the patient's body, resulting
in painless and non-invasive stimulation. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of kinesio taping on
pain, pain threshold, disability and quality of life in patients with episodic migraine. A randomized placebo controlled
prospective study was planned. Thirty-six (n=36) with episodic migraine patients were randomized to kinesio taping
(n=12), placebo (n=12), and control (n=12) groups. Three groups were included in this study for six weeks. The control
group received a home exercise program and daily living activity recommendations. Sham banding was applied to the
trapezius and deep cervical muscle groups for the placebo group. Kinesio taping was applied to the trapezius and deep
cervical muscles for the treatment group. Demographic and clinical data were collected from patients. Pain pressure
threshold (Baseline Dolorimeter), Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Migraine Disability Assessment Scale (MIDAS) and Short
Form-36 (SF-36) were used to evaluate the patients before and after treatment. When the differences in the three groups
before and after treatment were compared, a significant improvement was observed in the KT group compared to the
others group in terms of headache duration, headache days within 1 month, VAS, pain pressure thereshold (p<0,05). SF-
36 physical component scores and the disability within one month due to migraine(days) were found significiant lower in
the KT group (p<0,001). Kinesio taping combined with exercise is effective in improving for pain, disability and quality
of life in patients with episodic migraine.

Purpose: A number of previous studies revealed that implementation of computer based applications cannot overcome
the satisfaction level of patients which obtained from physical communication by the physiotherapist. Most of the patients
require face-to-face communication rather than online. The face-to-face communication includes face expressions of
physiotherapist, tone of voice, gesture and eye contact. Author has performed case studies to analyze the role of face-toface
Method: A potential, proportional comparative study of 50 (25+25) patients has been made to evaluate the effects of both
online communication of physiotherapist and direct eye contact has been performed. The setups aligned clinician and
computer system with Internet. All the cases recorded through video software whether online or direct communication.
Time spent by the physiotherapist for direct contact and online communication has also been recorded. Face expression
of patient in every five minutes has also been recorded. Ultimately satisfaction of patients has been collected through a
feedback form. Data was collected and analyzed using one-way ANOVA and chi-square test of independence.
Result: Chi-square test for independence revealed no significant correlation between Computer based online
communication and time of patient face-to-face contact time between the groups (p=0.999). One-way ANOVA revealed
a significant difference in the number of five minute glances between the groups. (p=0.005).
Conclusion: Online communications can play a role in increasing number of patients however patients with direct
communication were more satisfied. These findings may be relevant at the time of designing a clinical outcome.
