Yes, you could apply the spring constraint to a bone to deform the mesh.

i add bone and create rig in layout
the deformation is bad ; i see in video using weight map save the shape of the spring but how we can use that with bodies and animation ?

To use the weight map you apply it to the bone via the bone properties panel.

I'd make a scene for you but I don't have access to 2015 at home.
