Orthopedic rehabilitation is a therapeutic approach to recovery aimed at correcting musculoskeletal limitations and relieving pain caused by trauma, illness, or surgery. Because the musculoskeletal system is made up of muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage, orthopedic rehabilitation can address any of these structures.
The importance of post-operative orthopedic physiotherapy in a patient’s rehabilitation cannot be overstated. This rehabilitation is critical for regaining body strength, mobility, joint mobility, and functioning. Physical therapy is an important necessity after any major orthopedic surgery. Surgeons strongly prescribe physical therapy because it helps speed post-operative healing and minimize oedema caused by the initial injury.
Orthopedic rehabilitation looks different for everyone based on the condition, goals, and abilities. Our Healthcare Team creates a personalized treatment program and adjusts it according to your recovery along the way. Although it differs for everyone, rehab does follow a natural progression to maximize your recovery.
Who We Help
The physiotherapists collaborate with your surgeon to guarantee, you are making adequate progress toward a full recovery following surgery.
Rehabilitation is intended for patients who have undergone surgery to address a variety of conditions, such as arthritic joints, softer tissue injury, sports injuries, birth deformities, and other anomalies. We work with each patient individually to select which therapies to include in their treatment program.
How the program is set
Therapy is frequently separated into stages. The ultimate objective is to restore the patient to his or her pre-injury level of activity. Post-operative therapies may include, but are not limited to:
- Pain-reduction strategies include modalities such as cold, heat, and electrical stimulation.
- Exercising flexibility to increase range of motion.
- Muscle-building exercises
- Training for posture, balance, and coordination.
- Analysis and Training of gait.
- Techniques of manual treatment.
- Self-care education.
