Kinesiotherapy includes active, assisted and passive therapeutic exercise or mobilisation of joint as well as individual or group therapeutic gymnastics, active relaxation exercises, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), individual prenatal and postnatal exercises, individual exercises of the pelvic floor muscles, group breathing exercises, endurance exercises, proprioception exercises, suspension exercises, functional training, walking and standing school, ball exercises, occupational therapy and neurophysiotherapy (Bobath).
Guided therapeutic gymnastics
Kinesiotherapy is performed individually or in groups, depending on the patient's medical condition.
Passive exercises or joint mobilisation
With limited joint mobility, exercises and mobilisation are aimed at improving or normalising the movement range or at least functional mobility of the joint.
Active relaxation exercises of the body
The main purpose of active relaxation exercises is to learn to distinguish between tense and relaxed muscles or muscle groups and to reduce the tension.
Neurophysiotherapy – Bobath
Neurophysiotherapy is a technique used only for special, usually neurological disorders. It is performed on the affected and healthy part of the body. A patient is encouraged to perform selective movements and combinations of movements that will later facilitate functional tasks.
Functional training – walking and standing school
Functional training is designed to retrain patients in all that which they are unable to do because of the disease or injury and which enhances their ability to independently perform basic activities in daily life. The stress is on transfers, dressing, feeding, personal hygiene, toilet training.
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) – moving in multiple planes, encompassing several joints at the same time. It improves mobility and muscle strength, coordination and thus the function of the entire limb.
A set of exercises performed with a ball, for alleviating various health problems.
Individual prenatal and postnatal exercises
Prenatal exercises are safe and beneficial for pregnant women, and enable them to get into shape more quickly.
Individual exercises of the pelvic floor muscles
Incontinentia is frequent in women of older age. By regular and correct exercises for strengthening pelvic floor muscles this problem can be significantly reduced.
Group breathing exercises
The so-called "good morning" group breathing exercises are during the warm season performed outdoors. They involve body stretching and stretching of joints and make the start of a new day easier.
Endurance exercises (pedalling, quadriceps bench) are meant to improve physical endurance by strengthening muscles and improving the cardiovascular and respiratory endurance.
These exercises are designed for strengthening rather weak muscle groups of extremities. They are performed by implementing one's own body weight and manipulating gravity.
Therapy designed for improving the function and strength of arm in various ways.
Walking and standing school
A bedridden or severely mobility impaired patient is taught to stand up and gradually learns to walk independently assisted by a device or without it.
