What Diseases Does Orthopedic Rehabilitation Include?

Orthopedic rehabilitation is primarily for patients who have or are predicted to occur in the musculoskeletal system and have previously undergone surgery. Typical cases are lumbar-neck hernia, knee-hip pain or surgery of large joints such as knee, hip or shoulder. Also, physiotherapy techniques applied to interventions in the spine, for example after a herniated disc. Chronic orthopedic diseases for rehabilitation include, among others, osteoporosis, scoliosis, arthrosis or rheumatism.

Here are some of the most common ailments that push people to spend time at a rehab center:

  • Knee pain, meniscus tear or prosthetic surgery

  • Hip pain or bursitis

  • Foot pain

  • ankle sprain

  • Achilles tendon injuries

  • Heel spur or heel pain

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (Nerve compression)

  • wrist pain

  • Shoulder pain and rotator cuff tears

  • herniated discs

  • Backache

  • Scoliosis

  • Arthritis

  • Various fractures

Rehabilitation After Knee Surgery

Knee problems are not just common among athletes. Occupational stress or advanced age also often cause knee problems. Degeneration or inflammation are common triggers. In the case of chronic knee complaints and after knee surgeries, rehabilitation is usually recommended before and after surgery.

Hip Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is often recommended to strengthen the affected muscles and regain flexibility after a prosthetic hip or partially artificial hip is placed. Prostheses are primarily used when the hip joints degenerate. They are made of metal, plastic or ceramic. After surgery, the joint should be gradually subjected to weight bearing and movement as instructed by a physical therapist. Progressive muscle strengthening is also part of physiotherapy.

Back and Spine Rehabilitation

Herniated disc is a common diagnosis. In severe cases, patients should be operated on. Rehabilitation helps patients develop their back muscles later on. In addition, patients learn how to protect their backs and prevent new discs from slipping. Rehabilitation for scoliosis patients can be an excellent way to strengthen their back and practice spine-friendly sports through physiotherapy after surgery or initially. Also, patients can learn spine-friendly movement sequences in spine therapy training.

What are the Goals of Orthopedic Rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary field. In orthopedic rehabilitation, mainly orthopedics and trauma surgeons deal with patients. Initially, therapy goals are discussed together and a therapy plan is created. The concept of multidisciplinary therapy includes sports, physical therapy and occupational therapy. In addition, the patient receives comprehensive advice on psychological treatment and various aspects of health and lifestyle, such as nutrition and prevention in daily life and work.

Goals overview:

  • Reducing the consequences of the disease in terms of body, soul and social contact

  • Increasing the endurance limit
