Physical Therapy Methods

Physiotheraphy; It deals with all human movements and the structure of the skeletal musculature. It is one of the main treatment methods for those who have spinal problems, including those who suffer from back, waist and neck pain.

We collect the physical therapy methods in our body under 4 main headings.

1. Range of motion exercises (ROM exercises)

It is very important to bring the movements to their former extent in fixations after orthopedic treatments or after joint surgery. Movements that were previously passive assisted are developed over time to active and resistant exercises. It is very important for this treatment to be regular and efficient in the presence of a physiotherapist. Otherwise, permanent injuries and movement restrictions may develop.

2.Muscle Strengthening and Balance:

Even if the joint range of motion is full, it should be very important to have a certain level of muscle strength that creates movement. Muscle atrophy and weakness negatively affect returning to daily life after orthopedic treatment. We practice these kinds of exercises gradually, by following certain programs, accompanied by a physiotherapist.

3.Walking Exercises

Walking disorders can occur for various reasons. It is applied when it is necessary to gain normal walking style after orthopedic knee disorders or treatments.

Gait analysis is a special test that makes it easy for us to find the cause of gait disorders and to treat the cause.

4. Return to Sports and Athlete Support Exercises

Although joint width is provided after orthopedic treatment, bringing muscle strength to the level of daily life is not enough for athletes. Special training programs for returning to sports are carried out in the company of a physical therapy-sports physician and a physiotherapist.
