Current procedures on the scoliosis treatment panel

The “Current Methods of Scoliosis Treatment” panel was organized by the Sanco University Faculty of Health Sciences Department of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation.

The “Current Methods of Scoliosis Treatment” panel was organized by the Sanco University Faculty of Health Sciences Department of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the panel held at the Sanko University Hospital Anadolu Meeting Hall, Rector Prof. Dr. Dr. Güner Dağlı says they are happy to host scientific meetings and bring together academics and students.

Professor Dr. students. Dr. Dali says, “Every book you read will shape your outlook on life and shape your life. As a university, we have all kinds of opportunities for you to grow academically.”

Emphasizing the importance of reading for academic success, Professor. Dr. Dali noted that students can improve their personal and professional development through books that they will read and guide.

Professor Dr. Nevin Ergun

Head of the Department of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation, Faculty of Health Sciences (SBF). Dr. Nevin Ergun, on the other hand, said that the priority in the treatment of scoliosis is to be aware, “We have organized this panel, which is an example of a multidisciplinary study, to realize this awareness. I would like to thank everyone who contributed.”

Professor Dr. I don’t know

The panel was chaired by SBF’s Professor of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation. Dr. Najan Tugai mentions that scoliosis is commonly known as rotation within the spine itself.

Explains that scoliosis is a problem that, if left untreated, can lead to heart and respiratory problems. Dr. “The incidence of scoliosis is increasing. Its frequency is increasing, but its awareness in society is low, but its risk is high,” Tuğay said.

Professor Dr. Tugai noted that adolescent idiopathic scoliosis should be treated by specialists and concluded by saying, “Scoliosis is a team work that requires the cooperation of many branches.”

Surgical procedures to treat scoliosis

Faculty of Medicine, Department of Neurosurgery, Dr. Instructor Erdal Yaila began his speech by saying, “The main objectives of scoliosis surgery vary according to the type of scoliosis (idiopathic, congenital, neurogenic, degenerative scoliosis)”.

Dr. Train member Yaila listed the main goals of the treatment of congenital scoliosis as follows:

“To prevent the development of deformities and neural deficits, the physiological sagittal (longitudinal intersection that divides the body into two equal parts), the coronal balance, as well as the short segment fusion, provides maximum power. Maximum length and increase.It should be kept in mind that fusion in the spine (it should be done at the right time) will prevent not only the length of the spine, but also the development of the lungs.

The age, type of inconsistency and localization are the most important parameters when determining the time of surgical treatment, said Dr. Trainer Yaila summarizes the indications for surgery on idiopathic scoliosis as follows:

Curvature with cob angle (angle measuring the degree of scoliosis) is greater than 45-50 degrees, in which case sagittal contour is impaired, i.e. lumbar kyphosis and thoracolombar kyphosis, skeletal maturity is not reached, curvature is more than 40 degrees. Patients with problems such as irreversible curvature and lower back and back pain that cannot be controlled by conservative methods have impaired pulmonary function in the thoracic curve. “

Mentioning that the distortion has a significant psychological effect on the patient, said. Train member Yala shared the following information:

“Surgical options include posterior fusion, anterior fusion, combined anterior-posterior fusion, hemivitibra excision, and spinal osteotomy fusion. Pathology of the pelvis should be evaluated simultaneously with the sacrum, pelvis and legs in the coronal, sagittal and axial planes.

Congenital spinal deformities include multiple organ pathology. The patient’s age, nervous condition, etiology of the deformity, location of the deformity, cosmetic expectations determine the course of treatment for the progression of the deformity. Physical examination, in addition to neurological examination, should be performed on vertebral alignment and buttock posture in front and side curvature so that the whole body can be seen.

Pathophysiology and diagnosis of scoliosis

OPR, an orthopedics and traumatology specialist at Sanko University Hospital. Dr. Levant Bostansi, in his presentation entitled “Pathophysiology and Diagnosis of Scoliosis”, emphasized that scoliosis is the most common spinal deformity, usually diagnosed during growth, can negatively affect a person’s life if left untreated. Curvature of the spine.

Scoliosis can be caused by a structural disorder of the spine, it can also develop due to spinal cord injury, OPR. Dr. “Non-structural scoliosis may improve partially over time. Structural scoliosis often occurs as idiopathic scoliosis for unknown reasons, but can also lead to neuro-muscular diseases, connective tissue disorders, infections, and neoplastic conditions such as neoplastic conditions,” Bostansi said.

Physiotherapy and rehabilitation procedures in scoliosis

ANzge Özer, a physiotherapist in the SANKO University Graduate Education Institute’s Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Masters program, reminded with a thesis that the general goal of the non-surgical approach to the treatment of scoliosis is to stop the progression of curvature and the need for surgery.

Özer said, “The exercise defined as scoliosis-specific physiotherapy exercise is a method of exercise that is individually adapted to the individual’s curvature characteristics. It may be a treatment option alone, or it may be applied in combination with corset therapy and surgical treatment.”

The symposium was conducted by Dilara Bozkart, a 4th year student of SBF Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Department at SANKO University, and Prof. Dr. Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences. Dr. Turkin Pasinliolu, Deputy Dean. Coaching member Deniz Mıhçıoğlu, academics and students were in attendance.
