"What we can do aside the anamnesis is to talk to the patient. We ask him what it hurts, how it hurts him, when he hurts, when did the pain appear, if he knows what triggered the pain, because everyone has his own history. After tests we try to find out what is the painless level he has, from where we can conceive of a physiokinetotherapy plan, of course, already having the doctor's diagnosis ahead. Depending on the discussion we have here, there is differentiation from other cabinets. Here we are talking about the musculo-articular evaluation with the help of two unique devices in the country: Biodex and Vacumed. "
Dr. Florentina Moraru, Physical Therapist
Physiokinetotherapy means movement therapy and comes from ancient Greek, "kinesis", meaning movement and "therapia", meaning treatment. It uses active and passive movements as means of recovering of a function as complete as possible. A very important role in the restoration of myo-arthro-kinetic and cardio-respiratory functions and systems is the physical exercise underlying physiokinetotherapy.
At the Diagnostic and Treatment Center Provita we aim to treat patients from the perspective of all medical areas relevant for their affections. Depending on the complexity of each case, the patient can be seen by physicians with different specialties who will be consulted on the diagnosis and treatment to be followed. We invite you to Health360 to read more about the concept, as well as many medical articles on kinesiotherapy.
BENEFITS OF PHYSIOKINETOTHERAPY
• prophylactic - all the physiochemical methods and means used to prevent the disease by maintaining and strengthening the state of health;
• therapeutically - is found in prophylactic and recovery kinesitherapy;
• Recovery - the main branch of functional recovery support, applied throughout the functionalshortage of chronic diseases.
OBJECTIVES OF FIZIOKINETOTHERAPY
• correct posture and body alignment;
• increased articular mobility;
• increased muscle strength;
• increased muscle strength;
• coordination-control and balance;
• training to work;
• respiratory re-education;
• Reeducation of sensitivity.
TECHNIQUES USED IN FIZIOKINETOTHERAPY
• electrotherapy and physiotherapy;
• manual therapy (specific mobilization and manipulation techniques, trigger point release techniques, soft tissue mobilization techniques) used to relax and reduce muscle contractions and improve circulation;
• Lymphatic drainage (Vacumed and compression boots).
ORGANIZATION OF FIZIOKINETOTHERAPY PROGRAMS
The physiokinetoterapeutical programs are based on the pathology we have to treat, the functional deficit of the patient and the main complications of chronic diseases.
First of all, for the realization of a physiokinetotherapeutic program after the diagnosis by the specialist physician, an assessment will be made that includes:
• health or illness;
• how a pathological condition evolves over time;
• how a dysfunction responds to a treatment;
• ability to work or self-care.
Then, in the case of diseases affecting the locomotor system, the degree of motion of a joint or the strength of a muscle will be tested, which is carried out using Biodex technology.
Applying the work plan also involves:
• assessing the progress of the proposed objectives with the deadlines set;
• changing these goals and deadlines when necessary;
• Changing used methods or adding new ones.
The physiokinetoterapeutic program will end when:
• the proposed goals have been achieved;
• a positive result table has been obtained from which no progress has been made;
• Continuation of the program is no longer possible due to complications;
• continuing physical exercise at home;
• Interruption of the program is required by the patient or family.
At the first consultation with the PROVITA Medical Clinic, the specialist will examine the patient to identify the problems they are faced with and as a result of which he / she will conceive a treatment plan. The physiotherapeutic therapist needs to find out more about general health issues and the phobias or allergies of the patient. Depending on its needs, the specialist will choose one or more therapies (individual therapy plan).
The end of the program will be done with the final assessment, conclusions and directions for the future.
