After the hospitalization period starts a rehabilitation one for each burned person: physiotherapy, compressive clothes, plastic surgery… The cicatrization mainly, develops very slowly and is often accompanied by some inconvenience: intense itching which can sometimes be difficult to stand, highly sensitive and painful areas, skin hardness...
During this phase, few patients manage not to fall into discouragement, depression and loneliness periods adding to the feelings of misunderstanding by their surrounding environment.
It is mainly during this rehabilitation period that the cure is justified. It does not replace at all the physiotherapy or the wearing of compressive cloths! It is rather a complementary and efficient treatment, without being a miracle remedy.
Nevertheless, any person who has serious burnings should be in a position to take advantage, after his hospitalization, of the opportunities offered by crenotherapy, which is specialised in the treatment of skin diseases.
Convinced of the merits of these crenotherapies intended for burned people, both at physical and psychological levels, the Pinocchio association endeavours, in collaboration with the various Centres for Burned people located in Belgium, to offer annually, one of these cures to children, under the form of a "CRENOTHERAPY CAMP".
The 14-day long camp is mainly focused on medical treatment, but offers also to the child aged between 5 and 16 a range of opportunities :
such as small vacation periods with many games, sports and recreational activities
he learns to stay with others despites his burnings
- he will end up by accepting his scars
