Rehabilitation exercises

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,
  • osteoarthritis,
  • rheumatoid diseases,
  • atrophy and weakening of muscle strength, in particular post-heart attack states after post-stroke projects.
