Orthopedic and traumatological rehabilitation is most often performed after musculoskeletal surgery, most often due to osteoarthritis or after an injury, whether operated or not (road accident, fall, sports injury, etc.).
One can also speak of orthopedic cold surgery (orthopedic) when it is programmed like the installation of a prosthesis within the framework of advanced osteoarthritis, or hot (traumatological) for the urgent interventions following an accident. In the case of scheduled surgeries, we advise you to make an appointment for your rehabilitation before the surgery.
Our Physiotherapists can provide these rehabilitations at home initially if the surgeon specifies.
Once your travels will be made possible again by the autonomy found, the rehabilitation will continue in the office. In fact, orthopedic and traumatological rehabilitation is more complete in the office thanks to the equipment on site and longer sessions
When a condition affects the joints and periarticular structures, functional discomfort and pain may require the patient to undergo surgery that will be scheduled – hip prosthesis (PTH), arthrodesis of the spine, knee prosthesis (TKA) etc. … Your physiotherapist will then intervene post-operatively to improve edema, recovery of amplitudes and function. The goal here is to find the fastest autonomy that is the major objective of surgery. Your physiotherapist will be in close contact with the surgeon and will adjust his treatment according to his instructions. He will accompany the patient throughout his rehabilitation to save the area operated and avoid complications.
When an operation is scheduled, it is interesting, in agreement with your doctor, to set up a pre-operative re-education to prepare it. Indeed, following the operation, a muscular cast will quickly settle and may be limited by a reinforcement made upstream.
It follows an accident or a fall. Depending on the nature of the lesions (fracture, dislocation, sprain …) and the treatment put in place by the doctor (immobilization under splint, plaster or surgery), the pay will be oriented to begin rehab sessions. After an evaluation of the restrictions caused by the trauma and the treatment, your Physiotherapist will propose an adapted treatment which will respect the wound healing and your recovery objectives.
