What is kinesitherapy?

Kinesitherapy is a modern, scientific manual therapy that reharmonizes the patho-mechanical conditions of peripheral joints, the sacroiliac joints and the spine, in cases of mechano-genic affections such as epiphysitis, osteochondrosis, tendonitis, periarthritis, lumbago, back pain, torticollis, disc protrusions, herniated discs and osteoarthritis. In kinesitherapy, the therapist acts through biomechanical reharmonization, since each joint constitutes a “biological mechanical unit” which ensures the mechanical trophism of its own structures.
