therapy to strengthen your muscles and improve their function. Physical
therapy exercises have proven to be one of the most effective ways to relieve
pain, recover from injury, or prevent it.

Physiotherapists are well-trained and certified
healthcare professionals who can assist patients by helping patients relieve
pain and improve or restore immobility, often by reducing the side effects of
prescription drugs and the need for long-term medication, without the need for
expensive surgery in most cases.
Physiotherapy is used in the treatment of conditions such
as musculoskeletal sprains, back pain, posture problems, urinary incontinence,
inflammation of the bladder, decreased mobility, sports and workplace injuries,
which are also called orthopedic physiotherapy. Rehabilitation following
surgical intervention also falls into this category.
Physical therapy is applied to correct posture and muscle
imbalance, to increase mobility and endurance. It may include point
therapy to reduce stiffness and relieve pain, in addition to strenuous therapy
exercise to strengthen the joints, mobilize them, and restore soft tissue.
Physiotherapists help patients with physical difficulties
due to illness, disability, injury or aging improve their movement. They
design and review treatment programs using manual therapies such as massage,
therapeutic exercise, and electrotherapy.
Physiotherapists assist people affected by injury, illness
or disability through movement, exercise, manual therapy, education and
advice. They work to restore health to patients of all ages, manage pain
and prevent disease.
Depending on the nature of your health condition, the
first appointment usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes. If you want to
extend the session duration, your physiotherapist can give you information
about how long these sessions will last.
Rehabilitation initiated in conjunction with physical
therapy is a clinical and effective intervention for patients with adverse
deformities due to injury, illness, or disability.
Physiotherapy may not relieve pain if patients do not
practice all recommended exercises or devote enough time to their
program. Continuing the therapy completely without falling below the
prescribed duration of therapy will help relieve lower back pain, maintain
better posture, and help prevent recurrent pain.
Patients with most types of low back pain are referred to
a four-week course of physiotherapy as the first line of treatment before
considering low back and spine surgery. The aim of physiotherapy is to reduce
back pain, increase muscle function and teach the patient a care program to
prevent future back and back problems.
Physical therapy can help you understand what happens to
your joints and muscles when you have arthritis. Understanding your
arthritis will help you manage its effects. Arthritis can cause pain in
certain parts of the body, widespread pain, or joint pain. Medications
help relieve pain, but a physical therapist can talk to you about other methods
of pain reduction in addition to medications. Some of these treatments can
be applied on your own after your consultation with the physiotherapist.
Generally, you will need to continue physical therapy
until your goals are met and you and your therapist can make a reassessment
with a joint decision. This may vary depending on the severity of the
pain. Typically, the soft tissues take approximately 6-8 weeks to heal,
which is why your treatment may take that long.
The doctor is the person who treats; is a member of
the medical practice concerned with the study, diagnosis and treatment of

physiotherapists and preferred to eliminate respiratory problems caused by
mucus from the patient’s respiratory tract.
In the physical therapy and rehabilitation department,
different treatment programs are applied according to the region of the disease
or disability and the condition of the patient.
Heat Therapy: It is among the applications performed
in the physical therapy and rehabilitation unit, and includes superficial
heaters such as heating pads, hotpacks and paraffin applications. As a
result of the hot treatment applied in physical therapy and rehabilitation
units, joint stiffness is softened, blood flow accelerates, nerve conduction
velocity increases and pain in painful areas of the body is reduced to a
Cold Therapy: During cold therapy, which is one of
the applications used in physical therapy and rehabilitation units, coldpack
application is applied to minimize edema and body aches, and to relieve muscle
Ultrasound Therapy: It is an application that makes
it possible to warm up the muscle, tendon and ligament bone rather than the
skin, subcutaneous fat tissue by giving high-frequency sound waves. As a
result of the conversion of sound waves absorbed by the tissue into heat energy
during the application, it is possible to heat deep tissues such as muscle and
bone. Thanks to the faster-acting application of edematous tissues, the
discomforts caused by injuries are eliminated.
Application of Electrical Stimulation: By placing
superficial electrodes on the skin, the electric current applied to relieve
pain, while further strengthening of healthy muscles, resolution of muscle
spasms, treatment of edema and strengthening of weak muscles are possible.
Electro Therapy (Tightening Therapy): Utilizing the
physical effects of electric current for treatment is called electro
therapy. The basis of electrotherapy application; It is based on
activating the skin surface, subcutaneous tissues and deep muscle groups with
high frequency electrical stimuli. It is used for regional lubrication,
cellulite and pain treatment.
Therapeutic Exercises: Exercises that aim to
increase the functionality of the person by providing the mobility of the
person in order to prevent the problems that cause physical disability or
disability, or to treat these problems if they already exist, are called
