The basis of treatment
The basis of the treatment is patient empowerment, providing information about the prognosis of the injury and recommendations to be followed at home in order for the patient to recover in the best possible way.
Who is rehabilitation for?
Any type of patient who has suffered a traumatic injury such as: anterior cruciate ligament tears, muscle fibre tears, ankle or knee sprains, contusions and haematomas, surgeries (knee prosthesis, hip prosthesis, rotator cuff sutures), bone fractures…
What is the Rehabilitation service based on?
This is a 50-minute physiotherapy session. This is a comprehensive assessment of the injury and its suitability for the rehabilitation service, as not all pathologies benefit equally from this method of work. During this first visit, treatment will begin.
Control of acute symptoms and improvement of joint range
Possible referral to rehabilitation
At the end of the treatment, we provide our patients with recommendations and steps to follow, choosing the most decisive actions to avoid a relapse of the symptoms.
Example of treatment
To understand the service we explain how we rehabilitate the Anterior Cruciate Ligament. We would like to point out that the diagnosis must be made by a doctor. If the patient comes before the surgery, we offer strength training to get to the intervention in the best possible condition, which will improve the subsequent recovery.
After surgery, we recommend waiting at least 2 weeks (or as indicated by the surgeon) to start rehabilitation. We usually recommend 3 rehabilitation sessions per week.
After approximately 3 months, the patient is referred to the rehabilitation service to recover strength and work on the sporting gesture. During the months that the patient continues with the re-trainer, the rehabilitation service will provide support where necessary.
We adapt to each case on an individual basis, jointly agreeing on the sessions to be carried out and we adapt to working together with professionals from other centres and/or sports teams, which is very common in this type of injury.
