Orthopedic Rehabilitation: What The Process Could Look Like

Rehab facilities can take a variety of patients. The primary goal at a rehab facility is to help the patients get stronger and achieve their highest level of functionality.Rehab facilities often take patients with conditions such as cardiology complications, strokes, wounds, and many other different conditions that has caused a patient to experience increased weakness. Rehab facilities also see a large population of orthopedic patients. Estimated rehabilitation times can be different for patients depending on their diagnoses along with how their body heals. It is very normal for patients to have questions about their rehab and please dont hesitate to ask your care team. Due to the higher predictability of orthopedic patients, this article is designed to walk you through a brief synopsis of what the rehab process could look like for orthopedic rehabilitation.One of the most frequently asked questions regarding total joint replacement surgery is the estimated time for healing. To answer this question, we need to separate the various total joint surgeries as they all have different healing and recovery times based on the medical research available and the surgeons specific protocols.For total hip joint replacements, you should expect a quick recovery being able to resume normal walking within days. Physical therapy treatments for this surgery focus on walking, balance, coordination, and general strength of the lower body and is generally completed within one month.Total shoulder joint replacement surgery has a more involved recovery time due to the shoulder joint being highly mobile. You should expect some time in a sling following surgery according to your surgeons protocol. Once you are cleared from the sling, physical and occupational therapies include gentle range of motion restoration, coordination training of the shoulder muscles, and performance of activities of daily living. Therapy should be completed within 1-2 months.Total knee joint replacement surgery is the most rehabilitation intensive surgery of the total joints primarily due to scar tissue build up. Following surgery, you should expect heavy emphasis on walking and improving the range of motion of the knee joint. The total estimated time for full rehabilitation for a total knee is 3-4months in order to regain a full range of motion and to have sufficient leg strength.Be sure to ask your surgeon for estimations of recovery for your specific case as well as ideas related to the type and duration of therapy needed to get the most out of your new joint.Your orthopedic surgeon will be able to educate you on their specific preferences for rehabilitation. If you are thinking about rehabilitation for another condition, your care team will be able to help answer your questions along the way.Editors Note: This article is written by Mark Sanders, DOR, PT, DPT and Amanda Gibson, Clinical Liaison.

From Their Eyes

Our Elders are facing a period were visiting their loved ones puts them at risk. They must battel internally the decision whether to venture out to the store, wrap their arms around their family or stay in their homes and visit thru windows, online meeting groups, or phone calls. These are not easy choices for our Elders to make, but we can do things to help make these choices easier and safer for them. Studies have shown that there are key steps to take to reduce passing COVID-19 onto our Elders. Perform frequent hand washing using hand sanitizers with 70% alcohol or higher. Use Social Distancing wand wear a mask or other face and nose covering, these are key factors to helping reduce the spread of COVID-19. Masks maintain source control and protects others. If we all wear a mask and use social distancing, we can prevent the spread of viruses and protect one another. If you know you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you need to self-quarantine in your home for 14 days. It is still good to quarantine if you have travelled somewhere that has large numbers of COVID-19 or rapidly increasing. Avoid large gatherings and perform self-screening each day including taking your temperature and monitoring for any shortness of breath, change of taste, sneezing, or coughing. Remembering that many people that are spreading the COVID-19 virus has no symptoms. While you are waiting to see if any symptoms develop, stay in close contact with your Elder so they do not worry and know that you are doing these things to help protect them. When they know you are taking extra precautions it helps to support their and your decision on which kind of visit is best. With our elders being the population at greatest risk from COVID-19, they know it may be a life or death situation and knowing their loved ones are taking all precautions to help minimize the risk to their Elder, puts their mind at a greater ease. This Pandemic will be around for several month and if we all get in the habit following these simple guidelines we can really help our Elders and still enjoy all the love, the stories, and those precious moments with them without putting them at risk.Editors Note: This article was submitted by Melissa Latham RN, NHS, Administrator at Larchwood Inns and The PARC.
