Regarding the treatment
Musculoskeletal rehabilitation, as the name implies, is the rehabilitation of muscles and bones. Musculoskeletal rehabilitation assists patients in regaining maximum function and independence while enhancing the overall quality of life.
Typical Symptoms and Disorders
Tendinitis, bursitis, arthritis, and trauma injuries such as strain, sprain, joint damage, and replacement are some of the ailments that may benefit from this sort of therapy. Joint/muscle discomfort, swelling or soreness in the joint, reduced range of motion, diminished joint flexibility, pain while ascending or descending stairs, and pain while lifting heavy weight are all typical symptoms.
• Fitting and maintenance of casts/braces for various joints such as the cervical collar, tennis elbow band, and lumbar belt.
• For pain management, use electrotherapy modalities (pain alleviating equipment) such as TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator), IFT (Interferential therapy), and muscle stimulators.
• Exercise routines that increase range of motion (passive and active).
• Exercising flexibility and mobility through stretching and strengthening.
• Methods for retraining gait (walking) for safe ambulation with a walker, cane, etc.
• Education and counseling for patients and their families
• Ergonomic recommendations for the avoidance of workplace injuries.
The length of recovery is determined by the condition and degree of the pain. Treatment for pain using equipment and exercise therapy helps to avoid future amplification of symptoms. The discomfort usually goes away in 4-5 days, and full healing takes around 2-3 weeks.
