ORTHOPEDIC REHABILITATION PROGRAM TREATMENT PLAN


Tendinitis


Tendonitis describes inflammation, swelling, and irritation of a tendon. Tendonitis is a painful condition that is felt most at the tendon insertion site – the place where the tendon attaches to your bone. You may also experience along the length of a tendon near the point where your muscle and tendon come together


Program of treatment:


Faradic stimulation

to improve power of weak muscles

TENS application

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

Ultrasound

for pain relief by increasing extensibility of tendon muscles, allowing micro message effect, vasodilatation of the blood vessels and Increasing number of white blood cells that invade the microorganisms

Hot packs

to decrease pain.

Laser therapy

for pain relief through accelerating 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.

  • Strengthening exercise

to improve power of weak muscles

  • Stretching exercise

to improve flexibility of shorter muscles

  • Proprioceptive exercise

to regain joint receptor sensitivity.

  • ROM exercise

to prevent or decrease joint stiffness.

  • CPM (continuous passive movement)

to prevent or decrease joint stiffness
