Introduction:- There are no studies in the literature on the combination of kinesitherapy and ultrasound in children with bronchial asthma. Objective:- To compare the effect of the combination of kinesitherapy and ultrasound in children with bronchial asthma compared to a control group without rehabilitation. Material and methods:- 24 children (age 9.63 ± 3.56 years) with bronchial asthma were followed for 10 days (5 days as inpatients and 5 days as outpatients). They were randomized into two identical groups - physiotherapeutic and control. Both groups were treated with standard pharmacotherapy. The physiotherapy group was further treated with kinesitherapy and ultrasound. Spirometric and anthropometric parameters were recorded at the beginning and end of the therapeutic course. The ratios between actual and expected spirometric parameters, adjusted for all anthropometric parameters, were included in the statistical analysis. Results:- In both groups, the ratios between the actual and the expected spirometric parameters improved significantly after 10 days of treatment compared to before (P<0.05). The improvement after treatment was significantly greater in the physiotherapeutic compared to the control group (P<0.05). Conclusion:- In the 10-day treatment of children with bronchial asthma, the combination of kinesitherapy and ultrasound has a significant therapeutic effect, building on that of pharmacotherapy.
