Abstract: The strokes or cerebrovascular accidents - CVA represent a public health issue, being one of the major mortality causes worldwide, due to collateral complications generating long term disabilities and to high social and economic costs they involve. Hemiplegia, characterized by the presence of the motor and sensitive deficit in the hemibody opposed to the place of the lesion, is the most characteristic and frequent symptom of a CVA. Hydrokinetotherapy, the method comprising kinetic exercises in water at 36-37ºC, is, in the case of patients diagnosed with hemiplegia, one of the most important ways of rehabilitation. In order to point out the therapeutic advantage of hydrokinetotherapy, we have conducted a comparative study on 2 groups of patients diagnosed with post CVA hemiplegia, at the Recovery Hospital Bǎile Felix. The assessment of the therapeutic efficiency of hydrokinetotherapy was carried out by using standardized scales before and after the recovery treatment. The therapeutic efficiency of the recovery program was superior in the study group who also undertook hydrokinetotherapy during the rehabilitation, as compared to the witness group, who did not undertake hydrokinetotherapy along with the other recovery methods. Overall, in the case of hemiplegic patients, hydrokinetotherapy works as positive factor in what regards the patients’ neuromotor impairment, thus being recommended in cases compatible with the hydrokinetotherapeutic treatment.
