Herniated Disc is an illness that occurs as a result of the slipping of the discs between the 5 vertebrae compressing the spinal cord forming the spine and thus the nerves separated from the spinal cord due to wear, tear or displacement or various reasons.
The diagnosis of Herniated Disc is made by a careful patient history, physical and neurological examination, as well as imaging methods such as x-ray, MRI (magnetic resonance) or CT (computed tomography). In some cases nerve examinations called EMG ( electromyography ) may be needed.
A large proportion of cervical disc hernia patients can be treated without the need for surgical intervention. In some mild cases, the complaints can be improved by resting, organizing daily life activities and educating the patient about the correct use of the neck. These patients should be directed to a regular exercise program and followed up.
Painkillers and muscle relaxants are frequently used for cervical disc hernia treatment. Also, drugs containing corticosteroids can be used under the supervision of a doctor if needed. In some cases, it may be necessary to use a neck collar temporarily.
7 vertebrae of the spine consist of 33 vertebrae located in the neck. In healthy individuals, these vertebrae are arranged in a C-shaped, slightly curved way, while for some reasons these vertebrae become a straight line.
This natural curvature, also known as cervical lordosis, loses its curved structure due to various reasons and is called as Cervical Kyphosis. In some advanced cases, the vertebrae that have the shape of “I” can be bent in the opposite direction.
Fibromyalgia is an illness of which the exact cause is unknown, widespread pain and tender points of the body is characterized by a chronic musculoskeletal disease in certain regions. It is a chronic disease that does not cause limitation of movement and deformity in the joints but disrupts the quality of life of the person.
Shoulder pain is a common musculoskeletal problem. It ranks third in the society after back and neck pain. Shoulder pain is one of the first reasons that people who work by using their arms need to consult a doctor.
One of the most important causes of shoulder pain is that the shoulder joint is the most mobile and complex joint of the human body. There are soft tissues around the shoulder joint consisting of capsule, ligament, tendon, bursa and muscles. The soft tissues around the joint provide a solid structure of the joint. This situation causes frequent soft tissue lesions in the shoulder.
Scoliosis is defined as the curvature of the spine over 10 degrees to the right or left, which should normally be placed in a straight line when the spine is viewed from the back.
Scoliosis is not just a one-dimensional angular deformation, but a bony and structural deformation that affects the body in three dimensions, from the front and from the side. Scoliosis is a condition that can be seen in every period of life.
Arthritis refers to degeneration of the cartilages in the joints. When the cartilaginous structure of the hip joint is damaged and deteriorated, it loses its lubricity and causes pain and restriction of movement. This condition is called hip arthritis.
Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Player’s Elbow), Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer’s Elbow)
Lateral epicondylitis is commonly known as “Tennis Player’s Elbow”. It is a painful condition seen at the attachment of the muscle-tendon to the bone on the outside of the elbow. Tendons connect muscle to bone. The muscle associated with this condition is the “extensor carpi radialis brevis”.
