Rehabilitation Therapeutic Massage In Kiev

Recuperation of dysfunctions and bringing patients back to active life is the focus of rehabilitologists and rehabilitation massage therapists.

Physical therapy (physiotherapy) procedures affect the body via skin, breath, cells, and organs reducing pain, improving functioning of the traumatized organs, and elevating body resistances. Physiotherapy and therapeutic massage can restore muscle strength, extend range of motions, improve endurance and resistance to daily household and work loads.

Kinesiology is based on many fields including orthopedics and kinesiotherapy, anatomy and biomechanics, neurology and neurophysiology, ergonomics, rehabilitology, and sports medicine.

Another method of non-invasive manual therapy that does not require usage of drugs is osteopathy. This method improves overall health by working with musculoskeletal system including the spine, joints and muscles. The goal of osteopathy is to affect all bodily systems with the main focus on lymphatic, circulatory and nervous systems.

Osteopathy being a unique approach to health care is regarded holistic, meaning affecting the whole body. Osteopathic physicians do not only work with the pathologic areas, but apply certain techniques to achieve equilibrium of all the bodily systems.

Osteopathy methods can be used to treat much more than you can imagine. The most common complaints that are cured by osteopathy treatment are headaches, back, neck, heel and foot pains, shin splints, tennis elbow, sciatica, and strain injuries. Even various digestive problems, asthma, arthritis, postural problems, carpal tunnel syndrome and whiplash can be effectively treated by this method.

Regular patients for osteopathy treatment are ones who receive injures while doing sports, at home or while working.

Knowing that all body parts are interconnected and function together allows osteopaths to approach any problematic issue in an integrated manner. Thus, a certain body part with blockages forces the whole body to compensate for this and adapt, which further leads to pains, stiffness, inflammation and other adverse health issues. For patients who have no movement restrictions, osteopaths can alleviate pains, reduce stress and enhance overall mobility ensuring that the body has all the necessary conditions for self-healing.

The main techniques used by osteopathy specialists include a broad range of gentle movements such as deep tactile pressure, soft tissue stretching, and mobilization or manipulation of joints.

Certain injuries require surgery, and patients need careful restoration of damaged tissues later.
It should be noted that rehabilitation is as important and crucial stage of treatment as the surgery itself.

Surgical procedures never provide a complete cure without proper subsequent rehabilitation. Rehabilitation allows not only to consolidate positive results from the surgery, but also to prevent health complications, speed up the process of joint function recovery, and allow to return to an active lifestyle more quickly.

Do you need physical exercises to recover from injuries?

Many people think that it is better not to strain the damaged tissues after injuries and bruises, to have a complete rest, and to spend the rehabilitation period in a relaxed state without movement. Most doctors believe that lack of stress leads to slower dispersion of bruises and hematomas in the injured area, which can later lead to stagnant processes and low muscle tonicity.

The main and most effective methods of rehabilitation after injuries:

  1. Physiotherapy methods
  2. Professional rehabilitation massage
  3. Manual therapy methods (Cranio Sacral Therapy, Osteopathy, Kinesiology etc.)

Variety of activities and exercises aimed to recover from injuries can be used for:

  • Rehabilitation after joint surgery
  • Ligament repair after injuries
  • Other orthopedic rehabilitation

These techniques help to achieve partial or full normalization of a person’s condition and restoration of impaired functions:

  • An advanced therapeutic massage should be performed for rehabilitation after injury allowing to fully work out both muscles and ligaments, as well as biologically active points.
  • Manual muscle testing is carried out preliminarily to determine how weak the patient’s muscular apparatus is going to be after a scheduled injury.
  • Exercises aimed at post-isometric muscle relaxation are performed when the injured muscle is fully rested exactly after the exercise given to it.
  • Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation method can be used as well.

This method is based on the fact that the diagonal-spiral movements are the most natural for the human body. In the first months of life, newborns perform precisely the spiral-diagonal muscular movements until they begin to walk and run. Recalling the “initial movement programs” that are natural for the body, the patient recovers his motor functions as quickly as possible.
