Physiotherapy-led rehabilitation is a clinically and cost- effective
intervention for those patients whose life has been adversely changed by
injury, illness or disease.
What is rehabilitation?
Physiotherapy rehabilitation aims to optimise patient function and
well-being, to help integrate that patient back into their chosen
lifestyle activities whether at home, work or leisure. Rehabilitation
should focus on changes to functional disability and lifestyle
restrictions based on the patient’s own goals for functional
Rehabilitation can be used for recovery from injury or disease and
also for the management of long-term conditions (e.g. Parkinsons and
Rehabilitation should start as soon as possible to speed recovery.
The programs that combine many different components are likely to be
19 minutes of additional exercise a day in an acute or rehabilitation setting is all that is required to achieve:
- improved mobility and activity levels
- shorter length of stay in hospital
- significantly improved quality of life(3)
Case Study: Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)
Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust introduced a
triage system for staff that were off sick or reporting MSDs. This
allowed early access to musculoskeletal physiotherapy rehabilitation
services for NHS staff.
For MSDs, this led to 53.3 per cent of staff remaining in work, 21.7
per cent returning to work within 8 days with the remainder returning
within 30 days. The trust reported a saving of £586,000 over six months
on agency staff as a result of the new rehabilitation service.(4)
227,000 people per year have an MSD of the back, 215,000 of the upper limbs or neck and 96,000 of the lower limbs(5) MSDs are the most common reason for repeat consultations with GPs,
accounting for up to 30 per cent of primary care consultations(7)
Within the NHS half of sickness absence is caused by MSDs(7)
NICE guidance requires all older people with recurrent falls, or at
increased risk of falling, to be considered for individualised
multifactorial rehabilitation including strength and balance training,
home hazard assessment and intervention.(13)
Physiotherapy exercise programmes to prevent falls in older people at risk are cost effective, with a cost per
Adjusted Life Year (QALY) of under £10,000. This is well below the
level usually considered to be affordable in the NHS (about £20,000 to
£30,000 per QALY).(13)
Half of people who have a fall will fall again within the next 12 months (12,13)
A PCT population of 320,000 is likely to see 1,250 fragility fractures per year, with 360 of these likely to be hip fractures (12)
Based on 2009/10 costs each hip fracture avoided would save approximately £10,170 (12)
