What is kinesitherapy?
Kinesitherapy is defined as movement therapy. It is based on the knowledge of biomechanics and pathologies of the musculoskeletal system, to determine the various causes of your symptoms.
The use of muscular relaxation techniques, along with active and passive stretching or mobilizations, releases the tensions that limit the mobility of your joints and cause your symptoms.
How can kinesitherapy help you?
- Chronic Pain
- Headache or torticollis
- Neurological or vascular symptoms (ex: loss of sensitivity, numbness, sciatic pain, etc.)
- Improved posture
- Tendonitis / bursitis / capsulitis, sprain, lumbago
- Muscle tensions
A kinesitherapist intervenes in chronic or post-inflammatory cases and collaborates with other health professionals, including doctors, chiropractors, and kinesiologists, to provide sustainable wellness.
A session with a masso-kinesitherapist
During your first meeting a health questionnaire is completed. A postural analysis, various mobility, strength, and palpation evaluations are performed to allow the therapist to intervene in a safe manner.
The treatment begins with a general softening of the tissues through gentle but effective maneuvers that allow for the targeting of areas that require treatment. The kinesitherapist uses your symptoms to guide his intervention using therapeutic techniques aimed at finding an optimal range for your joints, and a reduction of pain.
Specific exercises are then recommended to help you progress, because you have an active role to play in restoring your well-being.
At future meetings and based on the evolution of the condition, more care will be provided while documenting progress through regular reviews and analyses.
