Kinesitherapy or physiotherapy: what are the differences?
Those who are faced with problems of the musculoskeletal system, know how painful they are accompanied - every movement causes hellish torment. The paradox of kinesitherapy is that movement helps to get rid of pain. The methodology is based on the principle: ailment can be healed by overcoming the fear of painful sensations. This is the main difference in the treatment of movements from traditional methods. Therapeutic gymnastics is usually prescribed after a considerable amount of time passes after determining the ailment of the musculoskeletal system or getting injured. The pain is blocked with the help of various medications, the person barely moves, avoids physical exertion. Kinesitherapy, in contrast to gymnastics, is focused on specifically targeting sore spots, while anesthetics are not used, since special exercises help fix the “breakdown” and extinguish the focus of pain. The correct mental attitude helps the body to transfer the load and cope with unpleasant sensations. This also contributes to a varied exercise program that comprehensively affects the affected joints. The trainer is directly involved in this and, thanks to psychological support from him, the guest copes with his problems much easier and faster.
