ORTHOPAEDIC AND POST-OPERATIVE REHABILITATION

 

Orthopaedic physiotherapy is a sub-branch of musculoskeletal physiotherapy related to the inpatient or outpatient preparation for, or rehabilitation from, orthopaedic surgery or related orthopaedic hospital admission. Some examples are;

  • joint replacement

  • spinal discectomy and decompression<

  • ligament, tendon or cartilage repair

  • internal fixation of bone fractures

  • setting of broken bones within fibreglass casts
