Orthopedic Rehabilitation

How is Orthopedic Rehabilitation Applied?

After the necessary diagnosis is made, the orthopedic rehabilitation process begins with methods such as x-ray, examination and MRI. After the diagnosis of the disease, orthopedic rehabilitation specialists prepare a personalized treatment plan based on the patient’s general health condition. After this personalized treatment plan is made, the patient’s treatment process begins.


Within the framework of orthopedic rehabilitation practices, methods such as exercise, massage and hot-cold application can be applied to the patient. With the exercise program carried out under the control of expert therapists, the patient’s muscles can be strengthened, his posture corrected and disorders in the skeletal structure can be eliminated. In this way, the patient can continue his daily life much more comfortably.


Thanks to this method applied under the control of orthopedic rehabilitation specialists, the patient does not experience excessive strain and begins to relax. This comfort brings with it strength over time. When the targeted results for the treatment of the patient in question are achieved, the treatment process is completed.
