Medical kinethology studies the neuromuscular and articular mechanisms which assure the man the normal motric activities, concering at the same time the inregistration, analization and correction of the short neuromuscularartcular mechanisms, The limitation of the motric activity can determine the following causes: decrease of the muscar strenghth or contracture, muscular spasm, diminuaton of the mobility, lack of movemenst coordinaton.The medical domanin of kinethology, kinetotherapy is a therapeutical personalized from which uses as mean treatment the movement under various active or passive forms , that through repetition becames itself a physical exercise.
Kinetotherapy can have two foms:
- The prophylactic kinetotherapy – contains the whole methods and kinetologically means that refer to the maintenance and optimization of state of health, basically to prevent the sickness of the body, with the help of physical exercise (primary prevention).

- Therapeutical and recovery kinetotherapy : the goal is to recover some diminuated functions or to grow the functional level in various pathologies, through special physical exercices programmes;
Complementary techniques of the kinetotherapy can be :
- exercises in the water, kinetotherapy which contains an assembly of techniques which uses water as therapy ans it is often necessary for the kinetotharapist as an add on in the efficiency of the treatment. In the water , according to the Archimedes principle the body loses from its weight as an equal part of the water’s voulume. So the movements can be done easier and the recuperation of the deficitary muscles groups is done in favourable conditions
Although it is not a part of the kinetopterapy, this procedures (specially the massage) are almost associated movements.
The association heat- kinetotherapy- massage represent a terapeuthic unit that is a must and efficient. The deterioration of the spine functionality affects more then 80 % of the people.

The benefits of kinetotherapy:
The general objective to follow in treatment through kintotherpy are:
