Individuals who have undergone joint replacement, experienced a musculoskeletal injury, sustained bone trauma or have been diagnosed with a degenerative joint disease often have limited function and mobility, pain and other complications.
Studies show that where an individual goes for treatment can make all the difference in his or her recovery. Research also indicates that an early start to rehabilitation can optimize functional gains. ABI Promedical specialized acute rehabilitation Center, is able to provide that early start and deliver a comprehensive orthopedic rehabilitation program that includes therapy care to best meet the needs of each patient. Our goal-directed approach to orthopedic and musculoskeletal rehabilitation tailors treatment to help patients:
Restore physical function and enhance the skills needed to perform daily activities
Build strength and endurance
Improve balance and regain mobility
Treating soft tissue damage
Correcting skeletal alignment
Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation in a joint.
It occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of your bones wears down over time. Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips and spine.
It is a long-term autoimmune disorder that primarily affects joints. It typically results in warm, swollen, and painful joints. Pain and stiffness often worsen following rest. Most commonly, the wrist and hands are involved, with the same joints typically involved on both sides of the body.
ELBOW PAIN AND PROBLEMS
Elbow pain is often caused by overuse or inflammation of one or both of the elbow's two tendons. Other causes of elbow pain are fractures from falling onto an outstretched arm, arthritis, sprains, which stretch or tear elbow ligaments and bursitis,
Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the small, fluid-filled sacs — called bursae — that cushion the bones, tendons and muscles near your joints. Bursitis occurs when bursae become inflamed.
CUBITAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that involves pressure or stretching of the ulnar nerve, which can cause numbness or tingling in the ring and small fingers, pain in the forearm, and/or weakness in the hand.
Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a painful condition of the elbow caused by overuse. It is an inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow.
Golfer's elbow, or Medial epicondylitis is a type of tendinitis, a condition marked by inflammation or irritation of a tendon. In the case of medial epicondylitis, overuse or injury causes small tears in the tendon that connects the elbow to the wrist.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.
FOOT PAIN AND PROBLEMS
Injury, overuse or conditions causing inflammation involving any of the bones, ligaments or tendons in the foot can cause foot pain. Arthritis is a common cause of foot pain. Injury to the nerves of the feet may result in intense burning pain, numbness or tingling
A fracture, also known as a broken bone, is a condition that changes the contour (shape) of the bone. Fractures often occur when there is a high force or impact put on a bone.
LOW BACK PAIN
Most low back pain is the result of an injury, such as muscle sprains or strains due to sudden movements or poor body mechanics while lifting heavy objects. Low back pain can also be the result of certain diseases: sciatica, arthritis, kidney infection, infection of the spine, a ruptured or herniated disc.
HAND PAIN AND PROBLEMS
Hand pain can be caused by disease or injury affecting any of the structures in the hand, including the bones, muscles, joints, tendons, blood vessels, or connective tissues.
CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a medical condition due to compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist at the carpal tunnel.
KNEE PAIN AND PROBLEMS
Knee pain may be the result of an injury, such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. Medical conditions — including arthritis, gout and infections — also can cause knee pain
A torn meniscus is one of the most common knee injuries. Any activity that causes you to forcefully twist or rotate your knee, especially when putting your full weight on it, can lead to a torn meniscus.
Kyphosis is an abnormal rounding of the upper back. It is a relatively common condition that often develops in adolescence or young adulthood. It is an excessive spinal curve that can cause discomfort and lasting issues throughout the body.
NECK PAIN AND PROBLEMS
Many people experience neck pain or stiffness occasionally. In many cases, it's due to poor posture or overuse. Sometimes, neck pain is caused by injury from a fall, contact sports, or whiplash.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which bone weakening increases the risk of a broken bone. It is the most common reason for a broken bone among the elderly. Bones that commonly break include the vertebrae in the spine, the bones of the forearm, and the hip. Until a broken bone occurs there are typically no symptoms.
PAGET'S DISEASE OF THE BONE
Paget's disease of bone is a condition involving cellular remodeling and deformity of one or more bones. These structural changes cause the bone to weaken, which may result in deformity, pain, fracture, or arthritis of associated joints.
Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that occurs most often during the growth spurt just before puberty. While scoliosis can be caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most scoliosis is unknown.
SHOULDER PAIN AND PROBLEMS
The most prevalent cause is rotator cuff tendinitis. This is a condition characterized by swollen tendons. Another common cause of shoulder pain is impingement syndrome where the rotator cuff gets caught between the acromium (part of the scapula that covers the ball) and humeral head (the ball portion of the humerus).
SOFT TISSUE INJURIES
A soft tissue injury (STI) is the damage of muscles, ligaments and tendons throughout the body. Common soft tissue injuries usually occur from a sprain, strain, a one off blow resulting in a contusion or overuse of a particular part of the body.
