Kinesitherapy is treatment with movement. Other terms are therapeutic gymnastics or improvement exercises.
The use of kinesiotherapy methods makes it possible to achieve maximum improvement of lost function, facilitates the occurrence of compensation processes, protects against the development of abnormal movement stereotypes or restores those already lost, prevents secondary changes in the musculoskeletal system in the form of movement restrictions, prevents complications in the cardiovascular and respiratory systems that can result from prolonged immobilization.
Kinesitherapy is most often used in diseases and dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system, in pain syndromes of the spine, after strokes, after heart attack,
in some respiratory diseases, in rheumatoid diseases,
after abdominal surgery, before childbirth. Kinesitherapy can be used as the primary and only form of treatment (e.g., in conservative treatment of postural defects) or, if the disease requires surgery, it can be carried out both preoperatively and postoperatively. In most, even minor musculoskeletal injuries, where kinesitherapy is not the primary form of treatment, it should be used after or in parallel with primary treatment. Kinesitherapy is often combined with other forms of treatment including physiotherapy methods to increase the therapeutic effect.
