Osteogenesis imperfecta appears to be an infrequent hereditary disease induced by
the disturbance of biosynthesis of the I type collagen. The disease is characterized
by frequent fractures, as well as by deformations of different types. The treatment of patients suffering from osteogenesis imperfecta with medicinal gymnastics has attracted an attention and obtained the recognition only in the recent years. Taking into account
a specificity of the disease we have tried to enhance the process of bone remodeling
using an original method of ridetherapy and at the same time to induce reinforcement of muscular system which would decrease the number of fractures and give the possibility of independent movement to children suffering from this disease.
