ORTHOPEDIC REHABILITATION PROGRAM TREATMENT PLAN


Patellofemoral Syndrome


Patellofemoral pain syndrome is pain in the front of the knee. It frequently occurs in teenagers, manual laborers, and athletes. It sometimes is caused by wearing down, roughening, or softening of the cartilage under the kneecap.


Program of treatment:


TENS Application

TENS application is used for pain relief by causing a mild electrical stimulation to the neural system that enhances production of beta endorphin and encephalin (pain killer).

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is used to pain relief by increasing extensibility of tendons, allowing micro message effect, vasodilatation of the blood vessels and increasing number of white blood cells that invade the microorganisms

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is used to relief pain through acceleration of the inflammatory phase of the healing process, stimulating B endorphin secretion which is associated with inhibiting synthesis of prostaglandin, decreasing the conduction velocity  of the sensory nerve and stimulating the gate control to inhibit pain pathway.

Electromagnetic Field

Electromagnetic field is used to decrease pain and inflammation

Strengthening Exercise

Strengthening exercise is used to improve power of weak muscles

Stretching Exercise

Stretching exercise is used to improve flexibility of shorter muscles

Proprioceptive Exercise

Proprioceptive exercise is used to regain joint receptor sensitivity.

Hot / cold application

Hot / cold application is used to decrease pain.

Proprioceptive Exercise

Proprioceptive exercise is used to regain joint receptor sensitivity.

Mobilization Techniques

Mobilization techniques are used to improve rom of shoulder joint and decrease pain.

Kinesio Tapping

Kinesio Tapping is used to improve circulation, decrease muscle spasm and support joints.
