Understanding Fractures Dislocations

Fractures and dislocations occur when there is a break or disruption in the continuity of a bone or when joint surfaces are forced out of their normal position. These injuries can result from trauma, accidents, falls, or sports-related incidents. Fractures can vary in severity, ranging from hairline fractures to complex fractures that require surgical intervention. Dislocations involve the complete displacement of joint surfaces, causing significant pain, instability, and functional limitations.

Our Approach to Fractures and Dislocations

At our clinic, we take a comprehensive and individualized approach to the treatment of Fractures and Dislocations. Our physiotherapists work closely with orthopedic specialists and healthcare professionals involved in your care to develop a tailored treatment plan. Our goal is to facilitate healing, restore function, and help you regain independence.

Treatment may include:

  1. Pain Management: We utilize various modalities, such as heat or cold therapy, manual therapy techniques, and electrical stimulation, to help manage pain and reduce inflammation.

  2. Immobilization and Protection: Depending on the location and type of fracture or dislocation, immobilization techniques, such as splints, braces, or casts, may be used to stabilize the affected area and promote proper healing.

  3. Range of Motion Exercises: Once the initial healing phase has passed, we will guide you through gentle range of motion exercises to prevent joint stiffness and maintain mobility.

  4. Strengthening Exercises: As your healing progresses, we will introduce strengthening exercises targeted to the surrounding muscles and joints, helping to restore strength and stability.

  5. Functional Rehabilitation: We will incorporate functional exercises and activities that mimic your daily tasks, sports, or occupation, aiming to restore your ability to perform specific movements and tasks safely and effectively.

  6. Balance and Proprioception Training: To enhance stability and prevent future injuries, we may include exercises that challenge your balance and improve your proprioception (awareness of body position).
