Major Diseases Treated


We can list the main diseases treated in our clinic as follows:

Neck Pain: Nowadays, with the increase in inactivity due to the development of technology, neck pain and stiffness are encountered from very young ages to older ages. Many different conditions such as neck flattening, differences in congenital bone structure, neck herniations, disc deterioration, calcification, slippage in the vertebrae, rheumatic diseases, infections and tumors can cause neck pain. Diagnosis is made through examinations and examinations, and individualized physical therapy and rehabilitation treatments are performed by evaluating the muscles and spine.

Back Pain: The causes of back pain are primarily posture disorders, muscle tension, cervical disc herniation, hernia in the dorsal spine and other disc disorders. Osteoporosis, diseases affecting bones, infections, metabolic bone diseases, and rheumatic diseases can also cause this complaint. Detailed medical examination, radiological examination and, if necessary, blood tests reveal the diagnosis and a personalized treatment program is planned.

Low Back Pain: Nowadays, all people suffer from short or long-term back pain at some point in their lives. The causes of lower back pain may be congenital or may be due to many reasons such as various strains, occupational factors, misuse, inactivity, aging, tension or weakness of the lower back muscles, rheumatic and systemic diseases. These problems cause degeneration and damage in discs, joints, ligaments and vertebrae. The most common ones are herniated discs (disc herniations), slips and calcifications in the vertebrae, strains on the spinal ligaments, muscle tension or stiffness, and functional disorders in the spine and sacroiliac joints. The majority of low back pain responds very well to physical therapy and rehabilitation treatments. In addition to relieving pain, muscle strengthening programs allow patients to quickly return to their daily lives. Those with back pain that require surgery also benefit from rehabilitation and spine strengthening programs after their surgical treatment.

Posture Disorder: Contemporary living conditions make daily life increasingly sedentary. Especially working in an office environment where sitting hours at the computer and desk are long, and not being able to spare enough time for sports and movement can lead to posture disorders. Posture disorders are an important factor that can cause neck, back and waist pain in the process. After the posture evaluation made by the physical therapy and rehabilitation specialist, a personalized exercise program is given.

Ergonomics: Ergonomics is creating a living and working environment suitable for people's physical and psychological characteristics or making it compatible with people. In our Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Department; People are taught to use their bodies correctly in daily life and work environments and to organize their environment appropriately, according to their pain and function status.

Rehabilitation treatment after orthopedic surgeries; It is one of the most important areas of activity of our clinic. After orthopedic surgeries such as knee arthroscopy, shoulder arthroscopy, hand surgery, ankle surgery, hip and knee joint arthroplasty surgeries due to meniscus and ligament lesions, rehabilitation treatment is applied to prevent and correct joint limitation, increase muscle strength and correct loss of function.

Rheumatic Diseases: Diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of rheumatic diseases and soft tissue rheumatism (fibromyalgia), which manifest themselves with symptoms such as joint pain, joint swelling and stiffness, constitute the important areas of activity of our Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Department.

Athlete Health: Sports-related injuries and disabilities can frequently occur in both professional athletes and those who do sports to stay healthy.
