Physiotherapy plays a major role in orthopedic patients as it ensures a faster and complete recovery after a surgery and also minimizes the effects of prolonged bed rest.
After surgery the patient is immobilised for some time, i.e. bed ridden. As a result this may cause:
- Breathing difficulties
- Reduced range of motion
- Bed sores
- Difficulty in ambulation
- Generalized weakness, causes muscle atrophy (wasting of muscles)
- Swelling in the limbs
- DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
- Lung collapse (atelectasis)
- Urinary problems
With the help of physiotherapy one can easily rule out the above mentioned complications.
Physiotherapy even improves blood supply to the affected area and promotes bone healing as the exercises causes cyclical controlled loading at the fracture site which promotes callus (substance responsible for bone formation) formation.
