What is kinesiotherapy?

Kinesiotherapy is a therapeutic form of active or passive movement that can be used to treat a variety of physical problems, while also having preventive properties. The main goals of kinesiotherapy are the restoration of the good function of the spine and all the joints, the improvement of the physical endurance, the strengthening and the elasticity of the muscles but also the gradual weight loss.

In which cases is it necessary?

  • Neck pain
  • Disc disease
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Paralysis of the limbs
  • Obesity
  • Chronic heart and respiratory diseases.
  • Neurological diseases

The patient can start some individual exercises with the help of a physiotherapist and always according to the diagnosis of the treating physician. The patient can proceed by doing some exercises on his own, while over time he can start using a special machine.

In any case, however, the supervision of an expert is considered useful. The patient can then join a group exercise program.

Kinesiotherapy greatly helps patients who stay in bed for a long time to prevent or correct possible deformities. Special kinesiotherapy programs improve the balance and stability of the body in many diseases of the nervous and muscular system.

What do isometric and isotonic exercises help?

Increases muscle strength and endurance.

The so-called isometric exercises are energetic exercises that are easy to learn, do not require machines, do not require time and improve muscle tone at rest, while they can be performed in acute situations, because during their performance the muscles do not change length (simple muscle contraction without joint movement).

Finally, isotonic exercises are active exercises that increase muscle strength at the angle of attraction we seek. They have an advantage over the isometric ones because they are not boring, they offer some motivation to the patient with the increase of the weight and they also improve the muscular endurance. The disadvantage is that they can not be applied in acute situations.

What is Respiratory Kinesiotherapy?

Respiratory kinesiotherapy is a special branch and is performed by properly trained physiotherapists in order to harmoniously cooperate with the respiratory muscles resulting in good ventilation of the lungs and good drainage of bronchial secretions.
