All the techniques or therapeutic procedures that can be used to treat the illness using movement.
With the movement we achieve a mecanic effect. Depending on the way of practising the movement there are the following options:
- Active kinesitherapy, where the movements are produced by active contraction of the muscle and will of the patient.
- Passive kinesitherapy: the movements are obtained by external cause, through the acción of the therapist or with help of specific machines, but there´s no active contraction of the muscle.
