For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp 96402670
A fracture refers to a crack or a break in a bone in our
bodies. The break can be complete or partial, and other variations are with
dislocations, translocations, impacted, open or closed. Complete fracture
refers to fracture that results in two different parts.
Partial refers to an
incomplete crack. Broken bones with dislocations, translocations or impacted
means that the broken bone had shifted. Open fractures refer to the bone having
punctured the skin and exposed to the open; closed referred to broken bones
that have not punctured the skin surface.
Most of the time, fractures are caused by a sudden injury
that loads, stresses or pressurises the bone more than it can take – such as
trauma from motorvehicle accidents or falls. The most commonly fractured areas
- Neck of femur of the hip
What our physiotherapists, hand therapists and sports massage
therapists can do for you
Following a fracture, the patient will first be managed by a
doctor, who will decide on management option, be it conservative or surgical. Conservative
management of broken bones can be done with immobilization with casting or
splinting. Six weeks later, it’s safe to begin mobilization and active range of
motion exercise therapy with the physiotherapists.
Our Physios will plan a rehabilitation programme taking into
account the person’s needs and lifestyle. Using techniques including specific
exercises and general fitness programmes, the aim is to reduce any swelling,
regain full muscle power and joint movement and to bring back full function. Our
Physiotherapists can offer advice about positioning of the limb as well as
teaching exercises to avoid muscles wasting and to prevent stiff joints while
still in plaster. We can also help the patient in sourcing and the appropriate
use of crutches and other supportive devices.
The hand therapist often managed fractures to hand, wrist
and fingers, on top of fabricating made-to-measure splints for patients who
needs the splint for immobilization purposes.
Sports massage and deep tissue release is particularly
helpful to loosen scar adhesion, release tight muscle knots aka trigger points
and stimulate circulation and blood flow following prolonged bed rest.
