Varieties and Causes
In the increased severity injuries statistics, the first place is occupied by fractures of the lower extremities (thigh, lower leg and foot). Bone tissue integrity can be compromised by fall, impact and any other mechanical effects. The most severe and dangerous is considered to be a femur fracture.
A very common injury is closed fracture of the knee joint (bruise, subluxation, a knee fracture, rupture of the meniscus). Due to excessive loads and excessive tissues tension, the shin dislocations and the foot fractures (calcaneal, scaphoid and metatarsal) are possible.
A partial or complete rupture of muscle tissue fibers is considered an equally serious leg injury. It occurs with a sudden movement, overstretching or muscle overload.
Lack of timely medical care and professional rehabilitation after a foot injury is fraught with serious consequences. In this case, the recovery process stretches for years, and the following complications may appear:
- Arthrogenic contracture;
- Tendon inflammation;
- Impaired venous hemodynamics;
- Vascular thrombosis;
- Inconsistency of the ligamentous apparatus;
- A false joint formation;
- Post-traumatic osteomyelitis;
- Degenerative changes in synovial and cartilage tissues;
- Limb deformity.
The most serious consequences leading to patient disability are chronic instability or a complete loss of the range motion.
Rehabilitation program after a foot injury
The most important step towards full recovery is recovery after a foot injury. And the sooner rehabilitation procedures are initiated, the sooner a person will be able to return back to a full life.
The Biomechanics Center in Marbella specializes in non-medicine rehabilitation of patients after the lower extremity’s injuries and after the leg’s surgery damage. For correction of the statodinamic function it is used the unique copyright system of expert on functional movement, D.M., Professor Eugene Blum. Based on the principles of the body neurophysiology and biomechanics, it is used for all types of rehabilitation after foot injury.
An individual recovery program is drawn up to pass a series of diagnostic biomechanical tests to assess the patient’s functional state. It is aimed at activating regenerative processes in the body - healing, integration and self-restoration, as well as targeted elimination of weak links that led to trauma. Deep stabilizing muscles are activated with the help of patented simulators that are not involved in a regular workout. This approach eliminates asymmetry and post-traumatic imbalance and accelerates the recovery process.
