Orthopaedic Rehabilitation

Orthopaedic rehabilitation is a powerful tool for both restoring a patient's physical abilities and reducing pain in all kinds of musculoskeletal disorders. By using an individualized approach for the various conditions that have led to dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system, it leads the patient through the various stages of recovery.

Surgery or rehabilitation?

When both treatment options are available to the patient, the decision making process can be done the smart way. There are basically three options to be considered:

  • Only rehabilitation
    Many surgeries are performed when or because there is no professional rehabilitation available. Rehab can be extremely effective and can help in a variety of conditions, especially in the case of a degenerative disorder or during the slow recovery phase of some diseases when the body has lost some of its' own self-healing capabilities.
  • Surgery and rehab
    Surgery and rehab belong together. Rehab makes surgery the real success, because it addresses the functional active element after the surgery has fixed the source of the problem. Thus, surgery and rehab are two parts of the comprehensive treatment in most orthopaedic conditions. Surgery may be the first step, but the proper after-treatment of rehabilitation is as important.
  • Rehabilitation as an important tool in decision-making
    In some cases, it is difficult to decide whether surgery is ultimately required or not and rehabilitation can help in the decision making process both for the patient and for the surgeon. Rehab has far less, if any, side effects than surgery. It just requires the patient's co-operation and commitment. As long as there is no urgent requirement for surgery, it is better to start with the rehab as it may be possible to avoid surgery at all. Those patients who cannot avoid surgery go into it with a far better functional preparation and the knowledge that the non-surgical options have really been tried. Ultimately, this combined decision-making approach gives far better results for those who need surgery.
