What is the treatment?
Any part of the body having issues with muscles and bones can be subject to orthopedic physiotherapy treatment. The details of the treatment to be administered are laid down by the orthopedist and the physical therapist would then work on them. Joint mobilizations, strength training, hot/cold packs and electrical stimulation are some of the orthopedic physical therapy options available for treatment of the various musculoskeletal conditions. The conditions being treated include some of the naturally acquired disorders like arthritis, injuries and pain due to accidents. Additionally, there are post-operative rehabilitation programs as part of physical therapy orthopedic. The expert would know the procedure to be adopted for each treatment. The patient's reaction to the treatment will also be closely observed and minor adjustments made to the heat applied or the pressure being given.
The duration required for the treatment through physical therapy can widely vary with the condition and the method of treatment being given. Invariably the therapy is administered over a few sessions. Each session would last from 15 minutes to a maximum of 1 hour and at least 7 to 10 sessions of therapy must be done for the patient to feel relieved of the pain.
In a majority of the cases, the patient recovers by the time the physical therapy sessions are completed. Complete restoration of the limbs and joints to carry on all activities as before may depend on the assessment made by the therapist and the doctor, but even that becomes possible in many cases.
