After a fracture, a surgery or a period of long immobilization the joints are stiff and the muscles tight, this makes it difficult to use them normally and causes pain. Physiotherapy gets the joints moving again: we can help you, call us.
Fractures are treated by immobilizing the broken bone in a plaster for several weeks, sometimes surgically inserting screws to stabilize the area.
A plaster consequences
When the leg or arm comes out of the plaster the joints are stiff and the muscles tight and this makes it difficult to use the affected limb and cause pain.
Physio to move again !
Physiotherapy is very effective at addressing these issues helping to get the stiff joints moving again; muscles are manually released and stretched and exercises can be taught to restore strength. Also, manual soft tissue techniques are used to resolve swelling and break down scar tissue. No matter how complex your problem is, we can help you call us.
