Orthopedic rehabilitation near me

Orthopedic rehabilitation is a therapeutic approach to recovery, the purpose of which is to correct musculoskeletal limitations and alleviate pain from trauma, illness, or surgery. The musculoskeletal system consists of muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, cartilage so that orthopedic rehab can address any of those structures.

Physical therapists help restore your strength, flexibility, mobility, and overall function in your body. They use manual therapies and have you perform stretches, exercises, and other techniques in gradual progression to help optimize your physical abilities.

Pre and Post Surgical Rehabilitation

Pre and Post Surgical Rehabilitation

Many people understand the need for physical therapy after surgery. However, did you know that physical therapy could be important even before surgery? It is important to be as strong and mobile as possible up until the day of surgery. Your therapist will provide you with the proper exercises and stretches so that you will be better prepared for after surgery, which will help speed up your recovery. After surgery, your therapist will perform an evaluation on your functional movements, range of motion, strength, and soft tissue quality. You will then be prescribed a plan of care that may include manual therapy, exercise, movement re-education, modalities, and a home exercise program.

Evidence has shown the benefits of Physiotherapy prior to Orthopaedic surgery.

We recommend pre-surgery physiotherapy to ensure a better recovery process. After assessment you will be prescribed a pre-op exercise programme to maintain function and strength as well as prepare you for your post-surgery programme.

Physiotherapy post Orthopaedic and Uro-Gynaecology Surgery is key to optimum recovery.

After surgery and through your recovery, our experienced physiotherapists will assess your mobility, strength and function. According to the different phases of healing, your progress and goals, the physiotherapy will prepare with you a rehabilitation exercise programme.

They could be:
Physical factors, such as ‘protecting’ the back and avoiding movements, or a simple strain.
Psychological factors, including a fear of damage or not getting better, feeling down or being stressed.
More general health and lifestyle factors, like being tired and rundown, not getting enough good quality sleep, being overweight or not getting enough physical activity

Neck Pain

best Neck Pain physiotherapist in pune

In most cases, it is not possible to identify the exact cause of neck pain. It’s important to know that any kind of serious structural damage is rare, and the most likely cause is a strain of one of the small joints located on the side of the neck. These joints are called ‘facet joints’. Less commonly involved are the intervertebral disc and even less so, the nerves.

With the widespread use of x-ray and MRI scans it is not uncommon for people with neck pain to have a diagnosis based upon their x-ray or scan results. However, it’s important to know that there is not a strong link between x-ray and MRI scan findings of ‘spondylosis’ and ‘degeneration’ and a person’s pain.

Neck pain is less common as we grow older, but ‘wear and tear’, ‘arthritis’ and ‘disc degeneration’ are more common and can be found in people who do not experience neck pain.

To understand what has triggered your neck pain it can be useful to look at ‘lifestyle factors’. Research suggests that these can play an important part in making the neck structures more sensitive.

Lifestyle factors include:

  • poor quality and quantity of sleep,

  • noticing more muscle tension in your neck,

  • low levels of physical activity,

  • and more stressful periods of life

These factors can all build up the sensitivity and make it more likely that you will experience neck pain.

  • There is increasing evidence that posture plays a much smaller role in neck problems than previously thought. It does not appear to be poor posture that is related to pain (although these remain strong societal beliefs).

What does appear to contribute to neck pain is our more sedentary lives, where we hold our bodies in sustained positions for extended periods of time e.g. sitting  at an office desk or watching TV on the sofa.

These symptoms are very rare but you should contact a doctor if you experience any of them:

  • Severe head, neck or arm pain that is constant or disturbs sleep.

  • Weakness and loss of feeling in the arms or legs.

  • A history of inflammatory arthritis, immuno-suppression, cancer, TB, drug abuse, AIDS or other infection.

  • If you feel unwell, have a fever or unexplained weight loss.

  • A history of violent trauma (e.g. a road traffic accident or a fall from height) or a history of neck surgery.

  • Try to take regular breaks from work that involves sustained positions. Consider taking a brisk 30 minute walk in your lunch break to move your joints.

  • Shrug and lower your shoulders, or wave your arms up and down, away from your sides to help reduce neck tension.

  • Practice relaxation if you are prone to stress, to reduce tension across your shoulders and neck.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder Pain Physiotherapy at home in pune

In young people, the most common cause is shoulder instability. This normally occurs after an injury and causes the shoulder to partially or fully dislocate.  Some children and young adults who are naturally double-jointed experience this without injuring themselves.

In middle age, people commonly experience pain from the tendons in the shoulder called the rotator cuff. This can start after strenuous activity or trauma such as a fall but can start for no reason at all. People typically find that it is painful raising their arm overhead and the arm may feel weaker than usual. It can be confusing as this problem is known by various names such as subacromial shoulder pain, rotator cuff, tendinopathy and bursitis but they all describe the same symptoms.

The other common cause of shoulder pain in middle age is a frozen shoulder that gives quite significant pain, especially at night, and restricts the amount a person can move their shoulder in any direction.

In later years, people may develop arthritis of the shoulder. This also can restrict the movement of the joint and cause pain. Subacromial shoulder pain also becomes more common as people age. These problems can normally be managed in the first instance without the need to attend hospital.

Successful treatment of shoulder pain depends on having an accurate diagnosis so if your symptoms are not improving with simple exercises and adapting your activities then see your GP or physiotherapist for an assessment. 

 

Receiving the correct treatment for your shoulder pain depends on your diagnosis

Soft Tissue Injury

Soft tissue injury treatment

Soft tissue injuries usually occur as a result of trauma or injury or as a result of overuse.

Treatment depends on the grade and severity of the injury. In the early stages try not to put a lot of weight on the affected area before commencing treatment to minimise any further damage. (i.e. minimal walking).

Cold therapy is often used to decrease swelling in the acute stage. Following this, Electrotherapy may be employed to help repair damaged ligaments.

Joint stiffness is common post joint and soft tissue injuries. Our highly skilled Physiotherapist will help you regain full range of movement through skilled hands on techniques and will provide you with a research based personal exercises program to help you self-manage your injury successfully.we will provide a safe, quick and effective solution to your problem.

Ankle Sprain

Ankle Sprain physiotherapy treatment in pune

An ankle sprain often occurs when the foot suddenly twists or rolls, forcing the ankle joint out of its normal position. During physical activity, the ankle may twist inward as a result of sudden or unexpected movement. This causes one or more ligaments around the ankle to stretch or tear.

Some swelling or bruising can occur as a result of these tears. You may also feel pain or discomfort when you place weight on the affected area. Tendons, cartilage, and blood vessels might also be damaged due to the sprain.

Ankle sprains can happen to anyone at any age. Participating in sports, walking on uneven surfaces, or even wearing inappropriate footwear can all cause this type of injury

You may have a sprained ankle if you notice the following symptoms in the ankle:

  • swelling

  • tenderness

  • bruising

  • pain

  • inability to put weight on the affected ankle

  • skin discoloration

  • stiffness

Frozen Shoulder

best frozen shoulder specialist

The shoulder is made up of three bones: The shoulder blade, the collarbone, and the upper arm bone, or humerus.

The shoulder has a ball-and-socket joint. The round head of the upper arm bone fits into this socket.

Connective tissue, known as the shoulder capsule, surrounds this joint. Synovial fluid enables the joint to move without friction.

Frozen shoulder is thought to happen when scar tissue forms in the shoulder. This causes the shoulder joint’s capsule to thicken and tighten, leaving less room for movement. Movement may become stiff and painful.

The exact cause is not fully understood, and it cannot always be identified.

However, most people with frozen shoulder have experienced immobility as a result of a recent injury or fracture.

Physiotherapy can help you get movement back in your shoulder.

A physiotherapist will decide the number of sessions you need. The exact number depends on how your shoulder responds to treatment.

The physiotherapist will first check how much movement you have in your shoulders.

Treatments from a physiotherapist include:

  1. stretching exercises

  2. strength exercises

  3. good posture advice

  4. pain relief advice

Scoliosis

scoliosis treatment near me

Scoliosis is a medical condition where your spine is curved from side to side. The spine-shape of a person with typical scoliosis may look more like an “S” than a straight line.  Approximately 2% of the population will have a scoliotic curvature in their spine, and about 10% of these are severe.

Scoliosis can be improved through the use of physiotherapy treatments that target muscle imbalances and other factors contributing to excessive spinal curvatures.

Focus Physiotherapy develops a treatment plan that helps you achieve greater flexibility in muscles that are chronically short and tight while strengthening those that are long and weak.

These muscle imbalances cause the spine to flex laterally and affect an individual’s mobility, posture, and function. Addressing imbalances significantly reduces and eliminates pain symptoms.

Physiotherapy can treat scoliosis in patients who use braces as well as those who don’t. It supports the results achieved through backing by ensuring that a normalized spinal position is maintained as an individual eliminates the use of a brace.

Physiotherapists consider a number of factors when developing treatment plans. These include the degree and location of spinal curvatures as well as the patient’s age, gender, and bone development.

Symptoms related to scoliosis such as back pain or respiratory issues are also considered in order to provide the proper treatment to address scoliosis in children and adults.
