Recovery is often explained as a result of all methods used for fight against post-effort fatigue. Trough a complex kinetic programme (relaxation techniques, self-suggestion, self-training), it has been trying to achieve a quick and efficient mental and physical relaxation for all sportsmen.
This study was made by ANEFS – medical department – from april till june 2004. The target of the programme was represented by 21 sport students. These students followed a mental and physical recovery programme, using psychotherapy methods. The programme included relaxation techniques, self-suggestion, self-training which are the most frecquently used in sport field. The evaluation has consisted in medical tests: Dorgo index, self-examination and a questionary paper. The paper questionary made clear that all students acquired a good mental and physical relaxation after the complex kinetic programme applied, and appetite for training was very high. The Dorgo index was situated between –10 and –5 (very good) for 66 % of the students, between –5 and 0 (good) for 24 % of the students and between 0 and 5 (satisfactorily) for 10 %. The study had proved that the positive effect of relaxation techniques. The prophylactic and therapeutic procedures had determinated a “good state” into the organism similar to a complex state of calm and equilibrium. Through physical and mental relaxation we have created the necessary conditions for good and proper recovery.
