A Healthier & Productive Lifestyle
Many people suffer from aches and pains for a short while after carrying out exercise and other activities that place your body under strain but often these disappear and they are back to normal after a day or two, however some others finds that pains don’t simply go away and in fact continue or become worse after time.

If you have started to feel that pains you have been experiencing have begun to get more noticeable or that a lack of mobility is affecting your daily lifestyle finding out if you could use Physical Therapy to help address these problems may be a really good solution.

Knee Pain & Treatment
If you have recently undergone surgery for a knee fracture, also known as a patellar fracture, it is imperative to seek physiotherapy so you can ensure a speedy and successful recovery. Unfortunately, after the surgical procedure, the recovery process is not complete, and you need to follow a rehabilitation program if you are to avoid any complications and ensure pain is alleviated and normal movement returns.

It is advisable to begin physical therapy two to five days after your operation, with appointments advised once a week. These are just general guidelines however, and once you have your first appointment with one of our physiotherapists, they will explain everything to you in full detail, giving you a realistic timeline for recovery and informing you on how frequently you should have treatment.

When you book an appointment with us, we will carry out a full assessment of your condition. Of course, we know that you have had an operation for a knee fracture, yet treatment still differs from patient to patient, as some people suffer more than others and there are many factors that must be taken into consideration, from the medication used to the severity of the fracture prior to your surgery.

Once we have assessed your condition, we will then put together an effective treatment plan, which will involve an array of different techniques. This will include the likes of dry needling, soft tissue massage, balance exercises, core stability exercise, ice or heat treatment, the use of crutches, flexibilities exercises, patella bracing or taping, electrotherapy, joint mobilisation and more.

We don’t simply provide you with the treatment and then leave you to it; we will supply you with a rehabilitation program that you will need to follow at home. Self-care is a vital part of the recovery process that cannot be ignored, and thus patient compliance plays an enormous role when it comes to the success of post-fracture rehab.
