Kinesiotherapy

This name is a compound from the words ‘ kinezi ‘ which means movement and ‘ therapis ‘ which means healing. The name perfectly describes the essence and the goals of this therapeutic method. Maybe it is better to explain its meaning by an example. For example, if someone sprains an ankle and asks a physical therapist for help. In that case the physical therapist will do two things. Firstly, he will insist with all the disposable means ( ice, lymphatic drainage, massage, electrotherapy, ultrasound…) to lower the pain and swell as soon as possible. When the pain sooths, and the swell disappears, next is the functional treatment i.e. helping the patient to regain the full function of the hurt segment or in some cases of the whole body. That is done only by specified exercises and is called functional treatment i.e. kinesiotherapy. This therapy has a simple task in a case of a swollen ankle but for many other injuries or illnesses it is far more complicated. It should also be understood that every illness, injury or postoperative treatment has its own specific kinesiotherapeutic methods. So today there are specialized kinesiotherapists for special treatments ( orthopedics, cardiovascular diseases, neurology, pediatrics, sports injuries… ) and this is because the kinesiotherapy is the broadest and fastest growing part of the whole physical therapy. Yet, the goal of exercising is not only strengthening the muscles and recovering the full extent of joint movement. The main goal is recovering the full function of all of the movements as well as preserving it, in order to prevent repetition of the symptoms. This way of healing, although it is best with the results, still has a weakness, which is connected to the fact that the patient has to be persistent in the process of healing. Mainly, the physical therapist is only a leader of the exercises, while the whole therapy is done by the patient. This is different a lot from a lot other treatments where the patient has a passive role and waits for the action of some of the applied methods. Kinesiotherapy is part of the physical therapy and rehabilitation, which is an important segment of the treatment because it actively includes the patient to use movement as a healing method.
