Orthopedic Rehabilitation Q & A

What is orthopaedic rehabilitation?

Orthopaedic rehabilitation at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers involves physical therapy and other forms of rehabilitation that ease pain and enhance healing of musculoskeletal injuries. 

Your orthopaedic specialist might recommend rehabilitation if you have an injury that isn’t healing properly, or you’ve recently undergone orthopaedic surgery.

What are the benefits of orthopaedic rehabilitation?

Benefits of orthopaedic rehabilitation at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers include:

  • Stronger muscles and joints
  • Increased flexibility
  • Better mobility
  • Lower risk of re-injury
  • Improved body functions
  • Faster healing
  • Less chronic pain
  • A better overall quality of life

If you recover from an injury with orthopaedic rehabilitation, you might not require surgery. After surgery, orthopaedic rehabilitation optimizes your results and accelerates healing.

For what is orthopaedic rehabilitation used?

To determine if you’re a good candidate for orthopaedic rehabilitation, your doctor examines the site of pain or injury and reviews your medical history and symptoms. 

They use imaging procedures, such as X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans, to diagnose your condition. Orthopaedic rehabilitation is commonly used for:

  • Sports injuries
  • Work-related injuries
  • Automobile accident injuries
  • Muscle and tendon injuries
  • Post-surgical joint, muscle, or bone injuries
  • Ligament and cartilage injuries
  • Back, neck, shoulder, knee, foot, hand, and ankle injuries
  • Back and neck pain
  • Neuro-orthopaedic problems
  • Joint replacement surgery recovery
  • Arthritis conditions

Orthopaedic rehabilitation allows you to you recover from just about any type of wound, injury, physical impairment, or deformity and helps prevent future injuries and pain.

What happens during orthopaedic rehabilitation?

A physical therapy evaluation is the first step in orthopaedic rehabilitation. Your therapist performs tests and measurements that offer information about the status of your injury and functional independence. 

They may complete motor or muscle function examinations and analyze your gait, balance, neuromotor development, and endurance capacity.

During treatment, licensed physical therapists at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers might utilize:

  • Aerobic conditioning and other therapeutic exercises
  • Functional training        
  • Joint mobilization
  • Massage
  • Myofascial release
  • Soft tissue mobilization
  • Debridement and wound care
  • Traction
  • Electrotherapeutic, mechanical, and thermal modalities

They may recommend using assistive devices, such as canes, crutches, braces, or orthoses. Your therapist personalizes each orthopaedic rehabilitation treatment plan to meet your unique needs and makes changes as needed to optimize results.

Don’t let an injury or chronic pain linger when simple, non-invasive orthopaedic rehabilitation options are available. Schedule an appointment with Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers over the phone or online today.
