5 short term goals of rehab
- control pain- medicine, modalities, ice
- maintain or improve flexibility- determined by genetics
- restoring or increasing strength
- reestablishing neuromuscular control- proprioception, balance
- maintain cardio fitness- pool, bike
When does rehab begin?
immediately after surgery
When an injury occurs, what 2 events arise?
- loss of physical fitness when activity stopped (strength, endurance, coordination)
- specific inactivity of injured part (splinting, immobilized; motor nerves become less efficient)
What are the key components of a rehab program?
- minimize swelling
- control pain
- restore full ROM
- restore muscle strength and endurance
- reestablish neuromuscular control
- regain balance
- maintain cardiorespiratory fitness
- incorporate functional progressions
lengthen muscle, causes soreness
no change in muscle length
locked in speed with accommodating resistance
maximum force applied by muscle during single maximum contraction
ability to perform repetitive muscular contractions against some resistance
ability to generate force rapidly
ability to determine the position of a joint in space
ability to detect movement
Criteria for full return
- physiological healing constraints
- pain status
- full ROM
- cardio fitness
