Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which promotes and improves health. Hence, a therapeutic plan is planned after clinical evaluation and examination of the patient's condition. Its purpose is to relieve pain, improve body movement and restore dysfunctions caused by an accident or due to pathology.
We apply numerous kinds of treatments. After evaluating the case, we select the appropriate therapy, which at times is a combination of more than one techniques.
Manual Therapy includes all hand techniques used to restore the joints to a condition which no longer painful to the patient. Manual Therapy is quite popular and we can perform various kinds (McCarthy, Mulligan, Mckenzie, Mnt).
The mobilisation instigated by manual therapy is risk-free and even though it can cause some discomfort in no case is it painful. While receiving a hand treatment, the patient’s joint is relocated in combination with its movement, so the patient actively participates in the treatment. It does, indeed, have immediate results in cases of Spondyloarthropathy (lower back pain, sciatica, cervicobrachial syndrome etc.) but also of knees, elbows, shoulders and hips with limited mobility and pain.
It is our practice that all patients should receive systematic therapy both through a workout routine as well as "healing" positions. For purposes of maintenance, workout should continue both between and after completion of the sessions.
Practicing these positions is essential and offers long-term and beneficial results in the treatment of the condition.
Manual Neuro Reflex Therapy
We practice this method in cases with symptoms of acute pain, in which customary therapies do not eradicate the symptoms. Neuro-reflex therapy is an alternative method through which we can relieve symptoms of sciatica, lower back pain and peripheral joints.
In certain cases, we use this technique in combination with other therapeutic physiotherapy methods. This enables us to treat the condition with various rehabilitation therapies, depending on which one is appropriate for each patient.
Acupuncture for neurological – musculoskeletal conditions (Dry Needling)
Acupuncture, nowadays, is used to relieve not only musculoskeletal conditions but also other discomforts such as headaches as well as menstruation, digestive and dermatological problems. Acupuncture is an extremely strong painkiller for musculoskeletal problems such as lower back pain and cervical syndrome.
There is usually a result as of the first session. However, acupuncture cannot always help eliminate all musculoskeletal conditions. In cases of pathological – anatomical damages such as vertebral translocation, it is best to practice it in combination with joint mobilisation.
Nerve stimulation in nerve palsy, and neurorrhaphy, neuropraxia and axonotmesis
Applying electrical muscle stimulation enables us to intervene in pathological conditions such as palsies (facial nerve palsy, foot drop, wrist drop etc.), neuropraxia and axonotmesis aiming primarily to avoid the atrophy of denervated or semi- denervated muscles. The quality of the electric stimulation received by the muscle is important for achieving its mobilisation.
Indeed, in many cases with little or no movement we have seen remarkable results in restoring movement and functionality.
The therapeutic massage involves applying pressure on soft molecules aiming to mobilise tissues, cause hyperaemia and stop muscle spasms if there are any. The massage is part of the treatment and is applied if necessary.
In general, the therapeutic massage affects the neuromuscular system and at the same time relaxes the patient and reduces stress.
