The human musculoskeletal system has 213 bones, 600 muscles and 230 joints. The anatomical joint consists of bones, muscles, ligaments, and an articular capsule. Muscles are responsible for nourishing the joints and intervertebral discs, which, by contraction, deliver water and nutrients. When muscles and ligaments do not work, the phenomenon of dehydration occurs, which, with prolonged use, leads to diseases such as herniated discs, arthritis and arthrosis. Muscle spasms can lead to poor blood and lymph circulation, and to nerve conduction. As a result, swelling and pain appear. To eliminate this swelling and pain, it is necessary to activate the work of the superficial and deep muscles, which act as a pump. This is where kinesiotherapy is required, which will gradually include all damaged muscles and ligaments in the work.
