Rehabilitation applications for osteoporosis and degenerative joint diseases rehabilitation, fibromyalgia syndrome and myofascial pain syndrome, jaw joint diseases, spinal curvature (Scoliosis) treatment, respiratory rehabilitation, and microsurgical surgeries for hand injuries.
A wide range of physical therapy and rehabilitation services are also offered, such as intra-articular injection, soft tissue injections, PRP application in musculoskeletal diseases, neural therapy, pain relief with dry spindle.
What is Manual Therapy?
Manual therapy applied to waist, neck, back pain and many other musculoskeletal problems; it is an effective and painless method. It is a treatment approach consisting of specific techniques that are applied manually to joints, muscles, soft tissues and many myofascial structures. This method, which has a special place in physical therapy, is an effective and safe application in many musculoskeletal disorders and spine pain.
The muscle that enters spasm, the joint that goes to blockade, the nerve exposed to compression, and every myofascial structure that becomes tense and stiff are among the reasons that can cause pain in the body and disturb the person in daily life. In manual therapy; Taking into account the anatomical and physiological processes in the body, such disorders in the functioning of these structures are tried to be eliminated. In other words, it is aimed for the tissues to function properly without any medication. Specific ; The tissues are regained their functions with mobilization, manipulation, stretching, relaxation and muscle-energy techniques. This method is effective, painless and has no side effects;
- Waist and neck hernia
- Muscular and facet joint pain of the spine
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Frozen shoulder, impingement syndrome, rotator cuff tears
- Nerve compression in the arms and legs
- Hip and sacroiliac joint pain
- Knee meniscus and ligament injuries
- Joint limitations after fracture

What is the Lymphatic System?
Lymphatic system; It is a system that provides fluid transfer from interstitial fluid to the bloodstream and works together with the immune system and serves as a protective filter against foreign bodies.
What is Lymphedema?
Lymphedema is the accumulation of fluid from the congenital (primary) or acquired (secondary) lymph fluid in the tissue as a result of abnormal accumulation in the tissue and inadequate lymph system.
Subsequent (secondary) lymphedema is released under the influence of various factors. Lymphedema can be seen in patients who have undergone mastectomy with a diagnosis of breast cancer and have undergone radiotherapy.
Recurrent infections, chronic venous (vein) insufficiency, lipoedema, traumatic injuries can cause secondary lymphedema.
Lymphedema is a disease that needs treatment and can progress if neglected. The disease begins with swelling of the ankle in the arm or ankle in the leg. If the treatment is not started, the swelling will spread to larger areas and cause deterioration in the skin structure. This disease, also known as elephant disease, should be treated immediately.
Manual Lymph Drainage and Bandaging
In the lymphatic system, stimulation of blocked lymph channels is the passage of accumulated lymph fluid through the lymph nodes by special techniques and the flow of lymph fluid in the edematous limb. With manual lymphatic drainage, the lymphatic pathways whose fluid flow is slowed are activated and the lymphatic system is re-operated. The bandaging method is then applied. If necessary, pressure clothing can be applied. Manual lymph drainage should not be confused with classical massage, this drainage has unique application techniques and should be applied by trained physiotherapists.
Skin and Wound Care
Care should be taken for skin care on the lymphedema of the arm or leg.
Powder can be used to prevent the formation of fungi in the hands and feet.
Cuts, burns, abrasions can cause infection.
No injection, edema, blood pressure should be measured from the edematous arm.
No compelling activities should be done.
Avoid hot and sun
Comfortable clothes should be preferred over narrow clothes.
Bandage and Press Dress
Bandaging is done in order to prevent the swelling of the area, where edema is removed with manual lymphatic drainage. The bandage materials used should be of minimum elasticity and specific to the patient. The patient should remain bandaged for 24 hours after the application. This practice should be continued until the edema subsides completely. Afterwards, the patient should wear a custom made garment to protect the current situation.
A personalized exercise program should be prepared. Exercise should be started with breathing exercises. Lymphatic flow increases with breathing exercises. Besides, swimming, walking (wearing headwear), in-water exercises, and yoga can be done. -
