Infantile cerebral palsy is one of the most common causes of persistent disability in childhood. The main method of treatment of motor disorders in this pathology is physical rehabilitation. Objective: a comparative analysis of the effectiveness of the use of kinesiotherapy methods for various forms of infantile cerebral palsy The analysis of scientific articles in public databases was carried out: MEDLINE® (Ovid), AMED, Embase, CINAHL и АРА PsyclNFO®, published in the period 1985-2021. The following keywords and phrases were used in the search: "kinesiotherapy", "infantile cerebral palsy". A total of 102 articles were analyzed. The review includes 17 scientific papers according to the methods of kinesiotherapy used and methods for evaluating their clinical effectiveness. The results of the system analysis demonstrate the positive effects of kinesiotherapy in the rehabilitation and habilitation of children with various forms of infantile cerebral palsy. As factors that increase the effectiveness of kinesiotherapy, group forms of training in the form of a game should be noted.
