Orthopedic rehabilitation, physiotherapy and rehabilitation are amongst the most advanced treatment methods. Orthopedic rehabilitation and the skeletal system related disorders are also treated.
In the treatment of orthopedic disorders, rehabilitation treatment is applied before and after the surgery. The Orthopedic rehabilitation practice attempts to restore or improve the lost body function due to the skeletal structure of the patient. Orthopedic disorders include:
Arthritis, which is a rheumatic disease with connective tissue pain, limited movement, swelling and pain. Arthritis may be chronic or rarely altered and may progress slowly, and unfortunately many of the causes of arthritis are unknown.
Osteoarthritis which is a degenerative disease of middle-aged and elderly adults. The articular cartilage breaks down as it ages, and this disintegration can occur in hands, knees, spine or hips. Osteoarthritis, commonly referred to as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease, is a common discomfort.
Rheumatoid arthritis, which is an orthopedically localized disease that causes severe inflammation of the joints. Inflammation is so severe that the functioning of the limbs becomes very limited. Damage usually occurs in small joints and prevents movement ability. In adults, rheumatoid arthritis lasts forever, and worsens. As an autoimmune disorder, rheumatoid arthritis occurs when the body's immune system attacks its healthy tissues and cells. Rheumatoid arthritis can also attack the heart and lungs when not treated.
Fractures are among the most common orthopedic problems. Between open fractures or compound fractures, there is a wound that exposes the skin to the bone or the deep bone. A closed fracture or simple fracture is a broken bone, but it does not come off the skin with an injury. Greenstick fractures are missing cracks. A small part of the bones were broken; other fractures include straight line fractures along the bone, and spiral fractures.
Scoliosis is a disease of the spine caused by spinal instability, such as impulse, which is caused by severe soreness. For this reason, orthopedic rehabilitation therapy is essential for spinal curvature.
Cross ligament injuries are also one of the most important discomforts caused as a result from a stroke. Orthopedic rehabilitation is used as a treatment.
Meniscus rupture is the most common complication in the knee region. Meniscus disease, which causes severe pain by obstructing the function of the leg, is also treated with orthopedic rehabilitation.
How is the Orthopedic Rehabilitation Implemented?
Orthopedic rehabilitation is applied to diseases diagnosed by physical examination, x-ray and MR. Once the disease is diagnosed, orthopedic rehabilitation specialists prepare a personalized treatment plan according to the severity of the disease, the age, weight and general health of the patient. After this, they prepare a treatment program, and the patient's treatment starts.
In the scope of orthopedic rehabilitation, the patient is subjected to a hot cold application, exercise and massage with the help of intelligent exercise devices. All exercises performed by the person are done in the field under the supervision of expert therapists. With the exercise program, the person's muscles are strengthened, the posture is corrected, and the deformations in the skeletal structure can be corrected by stretching movements. Thus, the ability of movement is increased in such a way that they can easily continue their daily life.
This procedure, which is performed under the individual control of orthopedic rehabilitation specialists, is applied in such a way as to provide relief and strengthening of the patient without excessive force. Treatment is completed when the patient has achieved the desired results.
Assistive Devices Used in Orthopedic Rehabilitation Therapy:
For orthopedic rehabilitation therapy, it is necessary to work with a full-service physiotherapy center and specialist therapists in the field. If you go to a good physical therapy center, a much faster treatment can be obtained with the support of the latest technology rehabilitation devices. Equipment used in orthopedic rehabilitation therapy are:
CPM device, which can be used for the treatment of knee diseases. The CPM device is a special device that provides continuous passive motion in the patient.
CPM device is also used in the treatment of shoulder diseases.
In some cases it may be necessary to use electro-simulation tools for electrotherapy. No pain or discomfort is felt with this device, since it is powered by a low voltage.
With intelligent exercise devices, the patient is provided with the right treatment for a treatment without any complications.
With the application of hot and cold, the pain of the patient is reduced and it is possible to continue to their daily life more comfortably.
