Musculoskeletal physiotherapy


Musculoskeletal physiotherapy – for whom?

The task of physiotherapy is to develop, maintain and restore proper movement and functional ability. Therefore, it serves everyone who suffers from limb disability.

Physiotherapy is a very broad field, covering a number of treatments aimed at maintaining, developing and restoring motor skills. Some people even need it to function properly, others choose it to improve their well-being or accelerate post-workout regeneration.

Kinesiotherapy is also known as physical rehabilitation. This is one of the types of physiotherapy that is an extremely important part of the rehabilitation process. The therapeutic effects of physical exercise include, among others: increasing muscle endurance, improving the overall efficiency of the body, improving joint mobility, correcting incorrect movement habits.

The term kinesiotherapy (Greek: kinesis - movement) refers to treatment with movement. This is a whole range of physiotherapeutic activities undertaken using methods of motor improvement used in dysfunctions and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. We are talking about spinal pain syndromes or various types of injuries suffered during activities and sports. Therapeutic exercises are also tools used to rehabilitate patients after strokes (as an element of post-stroke rehabilitation), heart attacks, respiratory diseases, rheumatic diseases, surgeries, gynecological diseases, and various motor dysfunctions. in infants and children.
In the rehabilitation process, individual kinesiotherapy is often the main form of treatment. Very often it is combined with physical therapy, which is very desirable. Such therapeutic eclecticism helps to enhance the positive results of treatment and allows for faster recovery of full fitness.

Physical therapy

it's a type of medical rehabilitation, a type of physiotherapy. During physical therapy, physical phenomena such as electric current, light, magnetism, ultrasound and low temperature are used for therapeutic purposes and act on the affected areas. The aim of physical therapy is to improve muscles after injuries, e.g. fractures, and to relieve pain, thus improving the quality of life in chronic diseases.

Physical therapy uses such physical phenomena as light, current, ultrasound and magnetic field. They are used to influence the human body, which reacts to these stimuli in a specific way, for example by accelerating the regeneration processes. Physiotherapy stimulates the immune system and encourages the body to fight various disease states, for example swelling, inflammation of various causes (physical therapy primarily treats inflammation caused by degenerative changes in the spine) and effusions after injuries. Physical therapy stimulates tissue renewal and healing processes, which is why it is often used as an auxiliary treatment for various injuries, including sports-related injuries.

Soft tissue mobilization

It is a type of work with soft tissues showing various types of disorders, it is often called mobilization. This common name briefly describes the goal, i.e. mobilization of tissues for movement.
Where do you need to start? Soft tissue therapy begins, as always, with a thorough interview and diagnosis. Once we know what the problem is, what it is causing and what is causing it, we start therapy.

It is a set of methods and techniques for working with broadly understood soft tissues (because this term refers to all tissues in our body that have elastic properties, excluding the skeletal system).
The main structures worked with include muscles and fascia, but also skin and deep tissues such as internal organs (liver, stomach), ligaments and nerves.

The effects of such work may include changing the consistency of the tissue, improving its mobility and mechanics, increasing blood supply to a certain area of the body or silencing pain receptors.
