Rehabilitation exercises, or kinesitherapy, use movement as a remedy. The purpose of rehabilitation exercises is to restore or maintain the patient’s total or partial physical fitness, more specifically:
- reduction of muscle tone,
- improve muscle strength and endurance,
- re-education of abnormal motor stereotype movements,
- increasing the range of movements in the spine and limb joints,
- counteracting secondary changes in the musculoskeletal system,
- prevention of cardiovascular and respiratory complications resulting from prolonged immobilisation.
Kinesitherapy can be used as a primary and sole form of treatment or may be combined with other forms of treatment. It is used to treat:
- spine pain syndromes (cervical, thoracic, lumbar),
- sciatica and brachial,
- disc herniation,
- post-traumatic states (e.g. ankle and knee twisting),
- postoperative states (e.g. ACL ligament reconstruction, discectomy),
- post-fracture states,
- tendon and muscle overload units,
- rheumatoid diseases,
- atrophy and weakening of muscle strength, in particular post-heart attack states after post-stroke projects.
