Physiotherapy

Kinetoterapie

Medical physiotherapy studies the articular and neuromuscular mechanisms that enable our body to move. It also records, analyzes and corrects the problems that might affect these mechanisms. Movement can be impaired be several causes: contracting or weakening muscular mass, muscular

spasm, joint stiffness (diminished mobility), lack of movement coordination.
Physiotherapy is a personalized therapeutic procedure that uses as treatment movement under different forms, active or passive.

What is physiotherapy and does it do?

Physiotherapy can be:

  • Kinetoterapie

    Prophylactic - all the physical methods and means that help maintain and optimize the general state of health. In essence it helps prevent the body from sickening by help of physical exercises (primary prophylaxis). Prophylaxis also is about applying all therapeutic means to prevent complications or chronic diseases (secondary prophylaxis).
    It is addressed to all active and less active persons, especially to fight against vicious positions caused by sedentary life or dedicatory positions.

  • Therapeutic - its purpose is to rebuild those damaged functions or to increase the functionality of others functions by means of physical exercises.

Complementary techniques:

  • massage

  • water exercises, hydrotherapy involves the use of water for pain relief and treatment and often it comes as a helping hand to improve the efficiency of the treatment. In the water, according to Archimedes principle, the body loses part of its weight equal to the quantity of displaced water. Thus the movements can be done more easily and the muscles recover faster.

  • sauna

Although not part of the physiotherapy, these procedures (especially the massage) are almost always associated to movement. The association among heat – physiotherapy – massage is a very efficient treatment method.

Who should do physiotherapy and what does it treat?

Spine conditions affect more that 80% of the world population. A sedentary life is one of the main causes that lead to back pains (lumbalgia). Another important cause is an inadequate posture: office work, many hours in front of the computer, standing or sitting for prolonged periods of time, weight lifting.

Physiotherapy is a must for treating lumbalgia (low back pains), especially for pain treatment as well as a preventive measure to avoid any deterioration of the actual state.

Physiotherapy is necessary to treat:

  • lumbalgia (deviation of the spine, herniated disc, sciatica, arthritis, osteoporosis)
  • affections of the skeletal and muscular system: - orthopedic, post-traumatic (fractures, twists, sprains, after surgery)
  • rheumatic affections: (spondylosis, periarthritis scapulohumeralis, gonarthrosis, coxarthrosis, arthritis, degenerative rheumatism)
  • cardio and respiratory affections
  • metabolic disorders (obesity, diabetes)
The benefits of physiotherapy:

The general objectives of the physiotherapy are:

  • to rebuild the muscular strength and resistance
  • to increase and adapt the ability to sustain effort
  • to improve coordination, control and equilibrium of the entire body
  • to learn how to relax your muscles
  • to correct body posture and alignment
  • to increase articular mobility
  • to regain and maintain a good respiratory practice
  • to regain and practice with sensitivity skills.
