Orthopaedic Rehabilitation


Orthopaedic Rehabilitation

Orthopedic rehabilitation, or rehab, is a program to help people recover from musculoskeletal injuries, diseases or surgeries. This includes conditions that affect the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments and tendons.

What conditions does our rehab team treat?

TKR- Total Knee Replacement

Joints in the knees become painful after a certain age due to arthritis, osteoarthritis, defects in cartilage and ligament, often resulting in knee replacement. This is carried out by replacing the surfaces of the knee joints with metals. Post-surgery rehabilitation procedures that involve physical therapy and Balance training are essential to help patients regain their physical balance and independence.

Total Hip Replacement

Hip or femur fractures at an old age and sever Hip osteoarthritis are treated through hip replacement, which entails replacement of the hip joint with a prosthetic. A part of the femur bone, starting from its head, is replaced with an artificial metal ball.

Post-ACL Reconstructive surgery

ACL reconstruction is surgery to replace a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), a major ligament in your knee. ACL injuries most commonly occur during sports that involve sudden stops and changes in direction — such as basketball, soccer, football, downhill skiing and gymnastics

The major goals of rehabilitation of the ACL-injured knee:

  • Gain good functional stability
  • Repair muscle strength
  • Reach the best possible functional level
  • Decrease the risk for re-injury
Post-Fracture/Dislocation surgery

For patients suffering from multiple traumatic injuries, it is important to go through a process of post-treatment orthopaedic rehabilitation that includes limb exercises, balance training, Gait Training, Mobilization techniques and to help re-integrate into their normal independent lives.

Sports Injury

Sports injuries occur during exercise or while participating in a sport. Children are particularly at risk for these types of injuries, but adults can get them, too.

You’re at risk for sports injuries if you:

  • Haven’t been regularly active
  • Haven’t warm up properly before exercise
  • Play contact sports

Types of sports injuries

Different sports injuries produce different symptoms and complications. The most common types of sports injuries include:

  • Sprains- Overstretching or tearing the ligaments results in a sprain. Ligaments are pieces of tissue that connect two bones to one another in a joint.
  • Strains- Overstretching or tearing muscles or tendons results in a sprain. Tendons are thick, fibrous cords of tissue that connect bone to muscle. Strains are commonly mistaken for sprains. Here’s how tell them apart.
  • Knee injuries- Any injury that interferes with how the knee joint moves could be a sports injury. It could range from an overstretch to a tear in the muscles or tissues in the knee.
  • Swollen muscles- Swelling is a natural reaction to an injury. Swollen muscles may also be painful and weak.
  • Achilles tendon rupture- The Achilles tendon is a thin, powerful tendon at the back of your ankle. During sports, this tendon can break or rupture. When it does, you may experience sudden, severe pain and difficulty walking.
  • Rotator cuff injury- Four pieces of muscle work together to form the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff keeps your shoulder moving in all directions. A tear in any of these muscles can weaken the rotator cuff.
