Rehabilitation is a long-term process aimed at helping children achieve maximum independence. Physical therapy at Tadawi Medical Center focuses on improving strength, flexibility, balance and coordination. Early treatment is often more effective, as abnormalities are identified and treated before they become serious problems.
Hydrocephalus is a condition in which there is an excessive buildup of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which can lead to serious problems. CSF is a fluid that plays a vital role in protecting the brain and spinal cord. At Tadawi Medical Center, we provide the latest technologies and advanced equipment to provide the best hydrocephalus treatment and rehabilitation services, and to ensure the health and safety of children.
Specialists at Tadawi Medical Center can detect hydrocephalus with an ultrasound examination during pregnancy. After birth, CT or MRI is referred to provide an accurate diagnosis.
Hydrocephalus in children cannot be treated with medications. It is preferable to use surgical methods to treat the underlying cause, so the cerebrospinal fluid must be transferred from the brain to another area in the body by placing a shunt (channel), and this operation is performed with a thin catheter.
We offer a comprehensive rehabilitation program for children with hydrocephalus.
The program focuses on strengthening muscles, improving balance and coordination, as well as building on today's technology by increasing balance with robotic rehabilitation.
Myopathy (MD) represents a group of diseases that cause progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass. These diseases often appear at an early age, as the symptoms of congenital muscular dystrophy begin at birth, while the symptoms of other diseases appear after the age of three.
It is the most common of congenital muscle diseases. The center seeks to provide complete care for those infected with this disease, and to provide the necessary guidance to families on dealing with the infected person.
Muscular dystrophy may be hereditary or the result of certain genetic changes.
Symptoms are characterized by muscle weakness, muscle cramps, and difficulty moving. At our center, we provide rehabilitation programs designed to strengthen muscles and increase their flexibility.
Tadawi Medical Center is considered a pioneer in the field of myopathy treatment, offering advanced treatment plans to patients.
The center is equipped with the latest technologies and tests to diagnose the disease and determine its stages, while providing the necessary support and care to patients and their families.
Although there is no definitive cure for DMD, at Tadawi Medical Center in Turkey, steroids, physical therapy sessions and supportive methods can be used to improve patients' quality of life.
