What is GTOS Therapy ?
GTOS therapy is a long lasting manual therapy technique that instantly relieves the pain-spasm-pain loop, which evokes acute and chronic pain, numbness, weakness, limitation in soft tissues such as muscle, tendon, fascia, ligament, etc. The GTOS Therapy system is a physician-controlled, non-invasive technique which is applied by an original patented device by GTOS Therapists. No medication, radiation, injection or electrotherapy is used in the treatment, so there are no side effects due to the treatment. It can be practiced securely on patients with hypertension, hypotension, diabetes, a medical surgery history or which are pregnant. GTOS protocol consists of 4 steps; Guide, Treatment, Ori and Setup which makes a lasting impact (lifting techniques, posture correction and conservative biomechanical strategies). GTOS Therapy is a single stage approach which takes 1-3 hours. Hence it is so fast and economic.
What is the development process?
It is possible to recover from pain in only one session which takes 1-3 hours, unlike similar manual therapies practiced by about 200.000 medical staff in the USA alone. With the help of GTOS Therapy, developed by Dr. Çetin Gürses, one of the founders of Istanbul University, Faculty of Medicine and Institution of Exercise Physiology. The therapy suggest a distinctive and alternative treatment protocol which can be the main model of the 21st century with a bare minimum of investment, using suitable scientific data support from a control group design of Prof. Dr. Whitney R. Powers (Emeritus professor of the Anatomy & Neurobiology department at the Boston University School of Medicine, USA).The GTOS Therapy diagnose and treatment system, which was developed by Dr. Çetin Gürses with the help of successful implementation on more than 7000 major case since 1991, was approved by patent offices in USA, UK and Turkey. In the report given by Prof. Dr. R. Whitney Powers, Emeritus professor of the Anatomy & Neurobiology department at the Boston University School of Medicine, and diplomat of The American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), GTOS Therapy is characterized as ‘’the treatment of the 21st century that is alternate to other treatments’’.
Is It a Permanent Solution?
Yes it is a permanent solution; since the people who are treated by GTOS Therapy, after passing American Medical Association (AMA) treatment protocol 4.0 and GT Post Tests successfully, are considered as healthy human beings. For that reason, it can be said that the likelihood of recurrence of the illness after the treatment of GTOS Therapy is equal to people who do not have any illness. After being exposed to illness-causing factors such as; accidents, extreme cold weather, excessive stress, age, excessive weight, posture and gait disorder, infection, physical inactivity, complaints can reoccur in people who do not have any illnesses and/or who were previously treated by GTOS Therapy. GTOS Therapy aims at permanence of treatment with the help of “GT pain school” department.
Are there any side effects?
Apart from possible rash on the skin, there isn’t any side effect or any risk of injury. It can be practiced to anyone at any time. Some factors that hinder standard treatment methods, such as age, sex, weight, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension, hypotension, pregnancy or patient’s being acute (severe, new) or chronicle (permanent) doesn’t effect GTOS Therapy. It is practiced effectively on backache, neckache, lumbago (hernia, sciatic etc.), meniscus, tennis elbow, sports injuries, nerve compressions like carpal tunnel syndrome etc., and arthralgia’s like back, shoulder, limb and leg, pain syndromes like fibromyalgia and myofascial, pain during rheumatic diseases, limitation of movement and catalepsy and loss of strength.
GTOS Therapy is applied in which cases?
It is applied in cases such as; myofascial pain syndromes, fibromyalgia, fibrocystic, myocytes,tendinitis, capsulitis, bursitis, epicondylitis, acute or chronic neck pain, acute or chronic lumbago, spondylolysis, facet arthroplasty, stenosis, lumbar disk hernia, sciatic, referred leg pain, mechanic lumbago, cervical disk hernia, referred upper extremity pain and numbness due to cervical central stenosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, painful pathologies of elbow and wrist, strains, meniscus pain, ligament injury, tendon injury, sports injuries, heel spurs, cramps and spasms, metatarsalgia, enteropathy and patella femoral pain syndrome.
