One of problems athletes who have different athletic qualit and are good at different sport, are worried about, is the present of postural variation by recruiting a kinetics chain or recruiting some points of this chain through a static function; unfortunately this problem is unknown so is not treated or has changed for another pathology as worse. This problem causes a reduction of muscular tissue which could be useful during the training, and a reduction of athletical progress happens as consequency. The “termal therapy” in its several aspects and ways of therapeutic action represents a great help to the sport doctor who studies postural pathology and skeletric-muscle-tendineo system. In this framework the kinesiology research studies the single points of support of the plant of the foot which correspond with the relative muscles and permit to describe which the relative muscles are and permit to describe which plain of the paint of the foot are not used by the patient we are treating. The plantar gives a continous and constant proprioceptive exstimolation to the point of the plant of the food no used by the patient and resolve the syntomatology caused by postural variations with recruiment of a kinetes chaine or some points it by a static function. The end of our work has been to test if the corrections of postural variations can modify the therapeutic resolution about some muscular-skeleton pathologies and can improve the performance of athletics by the podalic proprioceptive optimization. For this research we tested 58 athletics graduated on different sport and they were from 12 to 45 years old, of whom we have taken 46, 20 W and 26 M, suffering from algica symptomathology. The kinesiologic visit consist in a clinical exam of the foot in all its phases in order to value the active and the passive mobility of the arch support; the exam also consist in a postural exam of a Barrès vertical and a baropodometric exam. We prescribe the use of particular refleogeni plantar to the athletics for 4 months. In the 75% of treated athletics we have a progressive reduction with the end pain with a precocius restaintinf of training and recovery of the performance. Our study shows the importance of kinesiological valuation in the athleta suffered from muscular-tendinous pathologies and the validity of the therapy wity kinesiological “active” arch support.
