Kinesitherapy

Freedom of movement

Kinesitherapy is, as one of the methods of medical rehabilitation, a non-specific functional form of physical conditions and injuries treatment. By using motion or movement as the basic instrument, kinesitherapy improves the health condition in question or leads to complete healing.

In our physiotherapy center, kinesitherapy is inevitable in almost all Protocols - its beneficial effects can be local and general. The most common procedures during kinesitherapy are exercises, but also sports and recreational activities that are carried out with the aim of actively treating or preventing problematic conditions.

All forms of modern kinesitherapy are based on the latest knowledge in the field of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and kinesiology. As a special form of kinesitherapy, there is also kinesioprophylaxis – an assessment of functional status, which is used in physical medicine in the prevention of certain conditions or diseases.

Joseph Clement Tiso, an Italian physician and physiotherapist who was the first to introduce physical exercises into his therapies as a form of healing orthopedic injuries, states in his observations in 1781:

"By its effect, movement replaces every therapeutic aid, while all remedies cannot replace movement.

Basic goals of kinesitherapy:

Preservation and restoration of normal joint mobility

Preservation and restoration of normal muscle strength

Motor education - movement learning

Motor reeducation - movement re-learning

Preservation and restoration of coordination

Influencing the central and peripheral nervous system as well as the cardiovascular, respiratory and musculoskeletal system in order to achieve maximum functionality

Achieving a good mental state

Forms of kinesitherapy:

The forms of kinesitherapy that are applied in the Fizionova Center are numerous, but in practice, we most often use the following:

- Corrective gymnastics (a set of physical exercises with different intensity, type and duration, which can be applied preventively in children who have a predisposition to developing a postural deformity, or therapeutically if the deformities already exist)


- Education on protective positions and movements of the body

- Breathing exercises

- Lumbar syndrome kinesitherapy (disc herniation, spinal canal stenosis, disc protrusion, facet syndrome)

- Peripheral arthrosis kinesitherapy (gonarthrosis, coxarthrosis, small joints of hands arthrosis)

- Relaxation exercises

- Cervical syndrome kinesitherapy (disc herniation, central myelopathy, cervicobrachial syndrome, cervicocephalic syndrome, spondylosis…)

- Kinesitherapy after bone fracture and dislocation (luxation) of joints, sports and other injuries (fracture of the wrist, lateral malleolus, ankle distortion….)

- Exercises for osteoporosis

- Kinesitherapy as preoperative and postoperative rehabilitation (injuries of the anterior cruciate ligament, meniscus)

- Exercises for scoliosis and kyphosis - flat feet correction exercises

In the Fizionova Center, neurorehabilitation is performed through authorized techniques based on Kabat, Bobath, Frankil, Vojta…

The PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) technique is performed as a separate kinesitherapy method

1. The proprioceptive method involves some of the sensory receptors that provide information about the movement and position of the body

2. The neuromuscular method involves nerves and muscles

3. Facilitation is a method that was started by Dr. Herman Kabat in 1940, which is why it’s often called Kabat's method. With increased experience, it has become clear that this therapeutic approach is effective in many areas of medical rehabilitation: by using PNF, a therapist is provided with numerous opportunities to quickly and effectively solve problems such as pain, decreased muscle strength, contractures, muscle tone, coordination and posture disorders

The prerequisite for determining kinesitherapy is expertise!

A well-established functional diagnosis, knowledge of the effects of prescribed exercises, starting position, duration, intensity, number of repetitions as well as knowledge of side effects and contraindications are key to the positive effect of kinesitherapy and a step forward in our mission of freedom of movement.
