Treatment with kinesitherapy is effective in preventing or treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions: tendonitis, bursitis, capsulitis, osteoarthritis prevention, mobility loss, torticollis, sciatic nerve, low back pain, cervico-brachialgia, to name a few than the most common pathologies. For the first session, a complete health check is carried out, as well as a visual and palpatory postural examination, followed by specific tests to allow to emit a therapeutic hypothesis and finally to choose the protocol to be applied according to the pathology.
