MASSOTERAPIA, KINESIOTAPING – BENDAGGIO FUNZIONALE MASSAGE THERAPY Massage therapy is by far the best-known practice in physiotherapy. With the movement of their hands, the physiotherapist is able to establish contact with the patient’s epidermis, inducing a positive response through nerve stimulation due to the activation of superficial cutaneous receptors.   KINESIOTAPING – FUNCTIONAL BANDAGING Kinesiotaping is a preventive and rehabilitative therapeutic approach that involves the application of strips of elastic tape called “kinesiotape” directly on the skin, following specific patterns and application techniques. This type of elastic bandage is designed to provide muscle and joint support without significantly limiting movement. It is often used in sports and aims to improve blood and lymph circulation, reduce pain, provide muscle support, and promote muscle recovery after trauma or intense exercise. It is used to treat various issues such as: Post-surgical/traumatic edema Tennis elbow (epicondylitis) Golfer’s elbow (epitrocleitis) Osteoarthritis Ankle sprains Patellar subluxation Stiff neck Plantar fasciitis Piriformis syndrome Functional bandaging, on the other hand, involves applying elastic or non-elastic bandages to the skin to provide support and stability to damaged joints, muscles, or ligaments. This type of bandaging is more rigid than kinesiotaping and can limit joint movement in certain directions to protect the affected area and promote healing. Functional bandaging is often used to treat acute or chronic injuries, such as sprains, muscle tears, or joint instability. In conclusion,, while kinesiotaping aims to provide dynamic support without significantly limiting movement, functional bandaging is designed to offer more rigid and stable support to protect and stabilize injured areas. Both can be included in a broader treatment program, depending on the specific needs of the patient and the clinical condition. BOOK NOW


FUNCTIONAL RE-EDUCATION – REHABILITATION FUNCTIONAL RE-EDUCATION – REHABILITATION The purpose of this technique is to evaluate and treat movement dysfunctions by treating the musculoskeletal system with manual techniques and specific therapeutic exercises. Functional rehabilitation focuses on the stability of the spine, so that it can maintain functional stabilization during body movements. POST-SURGICAL RE-EDUCATION – REHABILITATION Post-surgical rehabilitation includes all the tools that the physiotherapist uses to achieve the maximum recovery of the patient following surgery. In this type of rehabilitation, we use: Manual techniques: massage therapy, joint mobilizations, myofascial release, etc. Physical means: laser therapy, tecar therapy, TENS, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, etc. Therapeutic exercise: called “passive” when performed by the therapist or special devices/tools, “assisted active” when movement is assisted and controlled directly by the physiotherapist, “active” when the movement is performed solely by the patient. NEUROMOTOR RE-EDUCATION – REHABILITATION Neurological Rehabilitation is a branch of Rehabilitation that deals with the functional recovery of patients with diseases of the Nervous System. Neurorehabilitation, therefore, in addition to recovering the functional damage that has occurred at the level of the Nervous System, aims to provide the most suitable strategies to allow the patient to make the best use of their residual functional abilities. POSTURAL RE-EDUCATION Postural re-education aims to re-educate the body to maintain a more ergonomic, healthier posture, and to reduce the risk factors for the musculoskeletal system of the body. Postural Gymnastics addresses all dysmorphisms of the musculoskeletal system, such as: Scoliosis Hyperkyphosis Hyperlordosis Knock-knee Bowleg Flat feet High arches But also painful conditions such as: Dorsalgia Low back pain Neck pain Metatarsalgia Plantar fasciitis Sciatica Cervicobrachialgia Adolescents with scoliosis problems (spinal dysmorphisms) are among the most treated subjects with this approach, but it should be noted that postural gymnastics is suitable for almost everyone and contraindicated for few. PROPRIOCEPTIVE RE-EDUCATION Proprioception is defined as the ability to perceive and recognize one’s own body in space. Proprioceptive rehabilitation includes all those techniques and exercises used in physiotherapy aimed at recovering and improving the proprioception of our body, a joint, or a limb in particular.

KINESIOTHERAPY When joint mobility or muscle strength and mass decrease, as well as the ability to perform voluntary movement, kinesiotherapy comes to our aid thanks to its specific ability to address these issues.The term kinesiotherapy derives from the union of two Greek words, ‘kinesis’ (movement) and ‘therapeia’ (treatment), meaning “treatment through movement”.   Kinesiotherapy is a branch of physical medicine and rehabilitation that focuses on the use of physical movement as a therapeutic means to treat muscle, joint, and other physical conditions. This discipline uses therapeutic exercises, controlled movements, and other specific techniques to improve muscle strength, flexibility, coordination, and joint mobility.   The goals of kinesiotherapy may vary depending on the patient’s needs and the condition being treated. These goals may include pain reduction, restoration of muscle and joint function, improvement of posture, prevention of falls, and recovery from trauma or surgery. BOOK NOW
