Abstract: Even if the written information on movement by therapy, are "only" nearly 5,000 years old, no doubt that human beings had sensed long before the benefits which the motion exercises brought to restore health. Physical exercise, used both for the broad implications it has on the health of the human body in general and on most of its functions in particular, represents the basic means of the physical therapy prophylaxis. Basketball, through its means, can be considered an "associate" of the traditional physical therapy prophylaxis. Thus, one can obtain various physical therapy programs which do away with the monotony, refreshing the traditional means. Remodeling the apparatuses, structures and systems of the human body, according to the laws of growth, and also of the young people, is due to the current social dynamics, to the new lifestyles required to cope with the daily challenges, to become competitive and to integrate professionally. This paper proposes to promote the health and the prophylaxis of the body posture and alignment disorders, such as lordosis, over the lifetime, by diversifying the physical therapy means with various basketball game means.
