Functional rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal system

These are mainly conservative treatments focused on the prevention and correction of injuries/disorders of the skeletal system, joints, muscles and ligaments.
Some of the common conditions include:

Head Neck

  • Headaches of musculoskeletal origin
  • Disorders of the jaw joint
  • Neck pain
  • Wry neck
  • whiplash injury

Lumbar spine & Pelvis

  • lower back pain
  • degenerative disk disease or disk injury
  • sciatica
  • stenosis
  • spondylolisthesis

Thoracic Spine

  • Rib pain
  • Upper – to – mid back pain
  • Fractures
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome and other nerve entrapment disorders

General

  • arthritis
  • Sprain/strain
  • fractures
  • dislocations
  • ligament injuries
  • muscle spasms

Upper Extremity

  • frozen shoulder
  • tennis elbow
  • golfer’s elbow
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • rotator cuff injuries (tendinopathies, impingement, etc.)
  • trigger finger
  • muscle contractures

Pre and Post Surgery rehabilitation

For injuries that require surgery, a pre-operative treatment helps to prepare the body by preserving function and preventing muscle atrophy. After surgery, a post-operative treatment helps control swelling, prevent loss of muscle mass and restore normal function.
Lymph drainage massage, passive joint mobilization, graded muscle strengthening exercise are few modalities that can be employed in pre-and post-surgery rehabilitation.

Sports rehabilitation

Prevention and rehabilitation of injuries related to sports and exercise is an important discipline in physiotherapy. Common sports injuries such are a joint sprain, ligament sprain, repetitive use injury, muscle strain etc. require correction in order for athletes to return to action. Also, muscle strengthening and conditioning training are important for a sports rehabilitation program.

 

Balance and Vestibular rehabilitation

Loss of balance and coordination could lead to falls especially in the elderly. Specific rehabilitation programs designed  to target age-related loss of muscle mass and strength (sarcopenia and dynapenia) help improve balance thereby yielding a positive outcome in daily activities and overall quality of life.
Besides the muscle, the vestibular apparatus plays a critical role in balance and general orientation. Several conditions such as vertebral artery occlusion, Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Menier’s disease,  and other forms of inner ear infection can cause imbalance in the vestibular system. These conditions are addressed with the appropriate treatment techniques ranging from manual therapy to maneuvers for correcting vertigo (Epley’s, Semont etc.).

 

Edema / lymphedema management

Swelling in the extremities (also known as peripheral oedema) may impair function and affect the quality of life. With lymph drainage massage, proper breathing technique, appropriate exercise regimen and compression garments, the function of the affected limb can be restored and consequently a return to activities of daily living.

 

Pain management

Managing acute and chronic pain of musculoskeletal origin is an important part of physical therapy practice. This covers peripheral joint pain, lower back pain (acute or chronic) as well as other non-specific conditions such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).
