What does orthopaedic/bone and joint rehabilitation involve?

A physiotherapy evaluation is the first step in the rehabilitation process. The evaluation identifies areas of deficit, including strength, range of motion and functional abilities. An individualized treatment plan is established which will address areas of deficiency and will work to achieve the patient’s own goals for treatment. Treatment plans can include, pain reduction/management, manual therapy techniques, restoration of motion and strength through exercise, education, and functional training.

How long will orthopaedic/bone and joint rehabilitation take?

The length of rehabilitation will vary depending on when therapy is initiated, the severity of symptoms and the patient’s goals for rehabilitation. Therapy services are often coordinated with any ongoing medical treatment prescribed by your treating physician. The frequency of visits will be determined after a comprehensive evaluation is performed by your therapist.
