Conservative PostFracture Rehabilitation

Patient Presentation:

Here we have a 35 year old male who sustained a non displaced distal Femoral condyle fracture. He was managed conservatively with non weight bearing for 6-8 weeks and a splint to limit knee range of motion. Physiotherapy normally starts once the patient has been cleared by the Orthopaedic specialist and the fracture has stabilised.

Initial phase of treatment: Can take 4-6 weeks. Increase knee range of movement
Mid phase of treatment: Can take 6-12 weeks. Start taking full body weight
Later phase of treatment: 12 weeks+ Increased resistance with weights, balance training, return to sports

Knee weakness and swelling 6-8 weeks post fracture
Knee weakness and swelling 6 weeks post fracture

Marked swelling and muscle atrophy noted on left knee.
Initial treatment focused on soft tissue release to reduce muscle tightness, swelling and increasing knee range of movement

Later phase of treatment: Full weight bearing exercises
