TRAUMA AND FRACTURES

Our multi-disciplinary team of healthcare providers have extensive experience with persons who have sustained traumatic injuries or fractures. This team is focused on returning an individual to their normal activities of daily life. This team of Occupational Therapist, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, and Registered Massage Therapists and other professionals will address limitations in range of motion, strength, and function while also managing pain in order to meet each individual’s unique goals. Our team will work closely with your Orthopedic Surgeon and implement their treatment protocols for continuity of care and best rehabilitation results.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON MY FIRST VISIT

A healthcare provider will conduct an assessment for treatment planning to initialize the Program of Care. The assessment includes the following: taking a complete medical history, subjective evaluation of the primary complaints related to the injury, a thorough physical examination including range of motion evaluation, orthopaedic testing, muscle testing, and neurological testing. The healthcare provider will also administer outcome measures to obtain baseline measures of pain and function. These may include, but are not limited to, the Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS), the Oswestry Disability Index, the Neck Disability Index (NDI), the Lower Extremity Functional Scale (LEFS), or the Upper Extremity Functional Scale (UEFS).

The healthcare provider will also assess for possible yellow flags, which can indicate psychological risk factors that may have an impact on their recovery as a result of behaviour, expectations and recovery from injury. A discussion on achievable goals from the treatment program will be discussed as well as responsibilities of the person’s served and healthcare provider through the duration of the program

Health Bound Health Network is one of few vendors providing state-of-the-art technologies that help our patients in their recovery. These devices are prescribed by medical doctors and as per various research studies, are effective tools to increase recovery following an injury.

BONE GROWTH STIMULATION DEVICES

Bone growth stimulation devices use ultrasound to deliver low intensity pulsed ultrasound signals to the fracture site. This device delivers an acoustic pressure wave, which provides just enough mechanical force to help improve circulation and facilitate new bone growth. Studies show that fresh fractures will heal 38% faster with the use of this device compared to those that have not been treated with ultrasound. Outcomes are dependent on the type and location of the fracture however the advantages of using LIPUS devices for treatment are established.

Devices that use magnetic fields, such as the portable and battery-powered bone stimulator, are useful in the non-invasive treatment of non-union fractures that are acquired secondary to trauma. All vertebrae and flat bones are excluded, however for other types of non-union fractures, clinical studies show that patients experience on average a 60.7% increased chance of healing with the use of this form of bone stimulation. Recovery occurred an average of 29.3 months from injury.

CONTINUOUS COLD COMPRESSION THERAPY

Game Ready is a best-in class sports medicine and orthopedic medical device that helps athletes and patients recover faster from injury or orthopedic surgery. The system uses ACCEL® Technology to set a new standard in recovery, synergistically combining active compression and cold therapies into a revolutionary treatment system that gives healthcare providers the power to accelerate the body’s natural repair mechanism.

CONTINUES PASSIVE MOTION

Continues Passive Motion devices are used during the initial stages of rehabilitation following a soft tissue trauma or a surgery. At this stage the main goal of rehabilitation is to control inflammation and pain in that area, and provide passive range of motion of the affected area while protecting the healing tissues. The CPM device is used to constantly and safely move the joint in a controlled range of motion within the specified range. A CPM device is commonly used and may be recommended by your orthopaedic surgeon following reconstructive surgeries, for instance in case of a knee replacement. Speak to your surgeon to find out if you could benefit from using a CPM device or contact us for more details.
