In our clinics we follow the develpments and use updated equipments for the fastests recovery of our patients.
The basic equipments we use in our clinics are;
HUMAC NORM CYBEX ISOKINETIC EXTREMITY TESTING AND EXERSISE SYSTEM
It depends on prınciples performing exersise in full rangeof motion withconstant speed and against maximum force.It simply resembles walking and running,exersise in water.
ESWT (EXRACORPOREL SHOCK WAVE THERAPY)
ESWT is a treatment used in physical therapy,orthopedicsand urology,The shock waves are abrupt,high amplitute pulses of mechanical energy.Similar to soundwaves,generated by an electromagnetic coil. Extracorporeal means that the shockwaves are generated externally to the body and transmitted through the skin of the treated area.
Shock waves are used in;
-Calcific tendinitis of shoulder
-Avascular Necrosis of Femur head
Magnethotherapy is a non-invasive natural physical theraphy method,orginated from low and high frequencies for therapeutic purposes Pulsative magnetotherapy regenerates the injured cells by enhancing the permeability of the cell stimulates cellular exchange and promotesaccelerationof all reperative phenomenons; bioregenerating,antiinflamatory, and analgesic action without side effects.
It is used succesfully for the treatments of many diseases,because it is safe,natural, easy applied, and without side effects.
The benefits of magnetotherapy;
It stimulates bone,cartilage,muscle and blood cells,
It repairs nerves,
It accelerates healing processes
It relieves pain; it is a potent analgesic
It improves metabolism
It improves capillary flow and stimulates the resorption of edema and cellular exchange.
It improves the healing of a fracture.
With a better metabolism and blood flow,it improves the effects of medical therapy.
IPC (INTERMITTENT PNEUMATIC COMPRESSION)
Intermittant pneumatic compression is a therapeutic technique that improves venous and lymphatic circulation via intermittent pneumatic compression device for the extremities.It is currently the most widely used method in circulatory disorders.It can be applied several times a day.The primary functional aim is to ‘’squeeze the blood from the underlining deep veins and reduce edema.It also decreases the risk of deep vein thrombosis.
DISORDERS IN WHICH IPC IS BENEFICIAL
-Edema of upper limbs after mastectomy
-Edema and stiffness after travma
-Post-Trombophlebitic syndrome (Inflamation of veins)
Vibrogym is a form of fitness training with optimised vibrations and maximum gain during a full body exersise.It improves the exersise program effectively. Whilst the traditional exersise methods train %40 of the muscles, with Vibrogym %100 (deep lying or inactive muscles) are activated. The vibration effect helps relieve pain and delays Osteoporosis in menapause period.
-Increases muscle strength and endurance,
-Helps burn fat,
-Prepares for cardio-fitness exercises,
-It stimulates testosteron and growth hormone,
-It is used as anti-aging.
As it stimulates the whole muscular system and improves blood circulation,it diminishes and prevents cellulitis,improves body texture.
Copmpared to other programs,%85 less time is needed,on the other hand,it improves %25 more the muscle work and resistance.
Is a system that enables specific functional exercises which is compromised of a platform and tube-like elastic bands which aid resistive exercises.It is performed in the last stage of sports injuries to increase the velocity,speediness and agility of the patient.
Besides this,Vertimax is used in our clinic in the framework of individual exercise program to improve the physical performances and vertical jumping ability of athletes.
In conjunction with other manual therapy technics,stainless steel instruments, which are designed for the shape of the body regions are used.The application is supported with stretching and strenghtening exercises.After the application,blood circulation and healing process enhances.Besides this,Graston technique diminishes the scar tissue,adhesions in soft tissue,relieves pain and increases functional capacity.
It is mostly used in disorders like;Lateral Epicondylitis,Rotator Cuff Tendinitis, dorsal myofascial pain syndromes,osteitis pubis,patellar tendinitis,Achille tendinitis and chronic muscle injuries.
KINESIO TAPING METHOD
Kinesio Taping method is a therapeutic taping tecnique that is designed to support the stability of muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.
It was first used in Japan and became familiar in Europe by a football player who was transferred to Europe. It is used by physicians and physiotherapists since 25-30 years.
Kinesio Taping is used in all kinds of sports injuries, cervical , back, low back pain, orthopedic and neurologic disorders, pre and posst-op surgery, lymphedema,muscle,tendon and joint diseases in conjunction with or seperately as a treatment modality.
Kinesio Tape allevites pressure by lifting the skin and increasing the interstitial space between skin and muscle; allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas,
The blood and lymph circulation increases, preventing the pain receptors to be activated,the tenderness in muscles is allivited, and painless motion is achieved.
The tape can stay on the skin for 4-7 days, depending on the problem. It is Latex and allergic-free, permeable to water and moist. It is flexible and longitidunal,easily comes off from the skin and seldom leaves sticky residuals.
It is resistant to water but may dissolve in saline water.
