Orthopaedic rehabilitation is for patients who have suffered a “trauma”, a sudden physical injury which most commonly results in fractures and soft tissue injuries. This includes work and traffic accidents, falls, sports injuries and over exertions.
This type of physical therapy also refers to any person who has received orthopaedic surgery. This refers to joint replacements, bone plates, corrective surgery like tendon release and recontructive surgery.
Physiotherapy plays a big role in returning to an active lifestyle in the shortest time possible following an orthopaedic intervention. Gone are the days where bed rest are the prescribed treatment for recovery. Early rehabilitation and physiotherapy intervention have been proven to get you back on your feet faster and are essential for a full recovery. It is also needed to prevent secondary complications.
I had no clue that a physiotherapist could treat my hand pain, I was told my only option was surgery. Now with only two sessions my pain has gone, I can't believe it.
You have given me the strength to get through this knee replacement and the encouragement that I needed to improve every day.
Thanks for making physio fun!
I never thought I would be back playing football with more strength and confidence after my tearing my ligament for the second time. I owe it to you. Thank you very much.
Thank you Becky for all your help and fun we had doing my scoliosis exercises. I will miss you and I promise I will keep doing them!
I've had so much physiotherapy since my brain injury happened but this is the first time I've actually looked forward to it.
Thank you so much for all your help and support after my hip fracture. I am completely pain free now!
