Many studies confirm the correlation between neuropathy and the bad glycemic control. Aim: To study the effctiveness of the kinesitherapy method, based on the modern principles of neurorebhabilitation in the improvement of the functional status of patients with diabetic polyneuropathy. Materials and methods: Eight patients with diagnosed diabetic polyneuropathy have been examined, in which limited volume in the joints of the lower limbs and muscle weakness were observed. Patients are selected according to several criteria in order to have a homogeneity of the research. For the purpose of the research, a complyex of functional tests was applied. The results of which were evaluated on the first day, the tenth day and the first month since the onset of treatment shown on the worksheet. Are evaluated: Pain sens, discriminatory sens, vibration sens, Romberg trial, manualmuscle test (MMT), centimetry, ankle mobility test. Results: The effectiveness of the applied kinesitherapy method is expressed in improving the volume of movement, increasing endurance and muscle strength, regulating glycemia and reducing pain. Conclusion: The kinesitherapy method plays major and significant role in improving the patient’s condition and is based on the basic principles of contemporary neuro-rehabilitation: be individual, intensive and specific oriented, to be realized with active participation.
